BBA Shipping and Transport Ltd

Our Background

BBA Shipping and Transport image

BBA Shipping and Transport grew out of the shipping department of the British Bloodstock Agency. The BBA has been at the forefront of developments in international trade in horses since the formation of the company in 1911.

BBA Shipping and Transport specialises in the permanent and temporary export of horses all over the world, as well as the transportation of European runners to the largest International Races. In the recent past, relationships with organisations such as the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) and the Japan Racing Association (JRA) have enabled us to make International racing possible.

We ship hundreds of horses as permanent exports to countries weird and wonderful around the world — go to our Global Travel and Export Information page to find out more.
