[ January 10, 2020   //   ]

Bahri, a global leader in logistics and transportation, has reached a new milestone in its efforts aimed at expanding market footprint and enhancing connectivity with the company’s MV Bahri Jeddah making its maiden call at two of India’s leading ports. The RoCon vessel arrived for the first time at the Kamarajar Port at Ennore and the Chennai International Terminal at Chennai Port on December 26 and 28, respectively.
Owned and operated by Bahri Logistics, one of Bahri’s five business units, MV Bahri Jeddah will call regularly at Ennore and on an inducement basis at Chennai, offering direct call from South India to US East Coast. The business unit operates six multipurpose vessels on a regular liner schedule, all uniquely designed to carry project, breakbulk, container and IMO cargoes as well as heavy lifts, special purpose vehicles, and mining equipment in a single voyage.
“In line with its long-term growth strategy, Bahri has remained keen on deepening its market presence and boosting its capabilities and MV Bahri Jeddah’s new milestone represents a major step forward in that direction,” said Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO of Bahri. We aim to capitalize on Bahri Logistics reputation as a preferred carrier for heavy lift cargoes and other RoRo segments as well as our two decades’ experience in India to further strengthen our foothold in this promising market. With the new port calls, we are strategically positioned to offer our industry-leading logistics and transportation solutions to a wider customer base across the world.”
