​​The BSM office in Caracas is a branch office of the Cyprus Ship Management Centre (SMC) and maintains close liaison with Venezuela’s State oil company PDVSA, supplying officers and crew to tanker and dry cargo vessels operating either on cabotage or on worldwide trades. 

BSM’s Caracas office commenced its operations back in 2002, and from the very first employees’ commitment to quality this contributed to the sound exponential growth of the office in the country, both in local reputation and towards enhanced range of operations. Additionally Hanseatic Consortium Naval (HCN) is a company set up within the office to support and drive growth for Venezuela flagged ships and owners that wish to enter the local market.

Although still a minor scale Crew Shipping Centre, the Caracas office has evolved from a dedicated agency exclusively servicing crewing needs of an important local owner, to a crew provider for other SMCs with enhanced crewing and fleet personnel duties, as well as technical support and prime LPSQ dealings.

Our office is located right in the middle of the business quarter of Caracas in the unique Centro Banaven building in Las Mercedes, with close proximity to many shipping offices.

In addition to Caracas, located at Punto Fijo city, we count with a sister office, initially intended to service our main customer at their own site, but during the years grew up to also deal with technical superintendent support. 

General Manager of all our operations in Venezuela, Capt. Peter Jones, feels it’s a great experience seeing cadets become officers and go on their careers up to Captains and Chief Engineers. He is confident the figure will be greater with the times to come and along with the rest of the local team is glad to carry on the business operations of BSM Group in Venezuela.
