Rickmers-Linie, Bahri enter into space charter agreement
Germany’s heavylift specialist Rickmers-Linie and the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) have entered into a space charter agreement covering the US to the Red Sea and the Middle East.

The space charter agreement covers the ports on the US Atlantic and Gulf Coasts as well as ports in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, the UAE, Iraq and the Yemen.

The partnership allows chartering of space from Rickmers-Linie to Bahri and vice versa on vessels operated by the other and authorizes Rickmers-Linie and Bahri to coordinate arrangements with regard to that space in the aforementioned trades.

“With this space charter agreement both Bahri and Rickmers are able to broaden their networks to offer our customers a wider choice of possibilities on the high level of reliability of the liner services of our companies,” said Ulrich Ulrichs, ceo of Rickmers-Linie.
