Blue Planet Shipping Ltd (BPS) was established and based at Piraeus since 1996, to manage 8 Dry Bulk Carriers.
In 1998, BPS split into two separate companies. BPS retained its root name and Third Millenium Shipping Ltd (TMS) was set up to manage vessels for different owners.
BPS managed 7 out of the 8 vessels; (AKMI - ARIS - EVMAR - COSMAR - ALMAVITA - AFROS & ALKIMOS) and the management of the ASTROMAR was undertaken by TMS.
In 2002, clients of the company placed an order for 6 New Building Supramax vessels in China, of which 5 were delivered in 2003 and 1 in 2004.
The new vessels (APOLLON - APEX - AKMI - EVNIA - NICOLAOS A and AVRA) were registered under Cyprus and Greek Flags.
With the company by then managing a total of 14 vessels, it began recruiting different nationalities to man the ships, focusing mainly on Greek, Ukrainian, Burmese and Moroccan crews.
In 2004, the vessels ALKIMOS, COSMAR, ARIS, AKMI & ALMAVITA were sold.
In 2005, the vessels APOLLON & APEX were sold as a pair to an overseas shipping company.
In 2006, the vessel AFROS was sold and in 2007 the vessel EVMAR was sold for scrap.
Once again clients of the company decided to order 1 New Building Post Panamax Bulk Carrier in China and vessel ALKIMOS was delivered to her owners in 2013.
