Saudi Arabia’s Bahri Line has launched a new shipping route to connect Asia to Europe via Jeddah Islamic Port.

The service offered by the Bahri Logistics unit has a rotation of the Far East, India and Saudi Arabia.

“Traveling through Jeddah Islamic Port, the new cargo shipping line comes as an extension of Bahri’s expansion plan to widen its liner network, strengthen supply chains, and diversify shipping options,” Bahri said.

The new service line takes in Bremerhaven, Antwerp, Montoir-de-Bretagne, Jeddah, Ennore and Taicang eastbound. Westbound service is from Taicang to Shanghai, Ennore, Jeddah, Montoir, Antwerp and Bremerhaven.

Bahri Line’s establishment of Jeddah Islamic Port’s newest shipping line increases and enhances local logistical capabilities, directly linking Asia and Europe via Jeddah. “The new shipping line’s maiden journey embarked this year with the first vessel expected to reach Jeddah Islamic port in early February 2023,” it said.

“We are excited to further expand our scope by launching our latest service line through Jeddah Islamic Port. The port’s leading operational capabilities and capacity to handle high volumes will surely serve as vital aspects of the success of this new service, helping us to cement the port and Saudi Arabia as a global logistics hub linking India, China, and Europe,” Eng. Soror Basalom, president, Bahri Logistics, said.

“Bahri Line is proud to work in support of regional supply chains and in cohesion with the economic growth and development occurring within the Kingdom.”
