Saudi Arabia’s shipowner Bahri has extended its liner shipping network to South India with calls at Ennore and Chennai ports.

The 26,000-dwt roro cargo vessel Bahri Jeddah has made its maiden call at Kamarajar port at Ennore and Chennai International Terminal at Chennai port on 26 and 28 December 2019, respectively.

The vessel will now call regularly at Ennore and on an inducement basis at Chennai, offering direct call from South India to the US East Coast.

Bahri, owned and operated by Bahri Logistics, operates six multipurpose vessels on a regular liner schedule designed to carry project, breakbulk, container and IMO cargoes as well as heavy lifts, special purpose vehicles and mining equipment in a single voyage.

“We aim to capitalise 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,” said Abdullah Aldubaikhi, ceo of Bahri.

Bahri has an office in Mumbai to facilitate works with major OEMs on moving cargo exports out of India.
