BBA Shipping’s Services


At BBA we provide a first class road transport service throughout Europe, with regular trips to Ireland and France. Currently on the road we have 9 Oakley and JSW horseboxes, ranging from 2-horse boxes to those with the capacity to travel 9, painted in our distinctive red and white colours.
