RIYADH, July 11, 2017

National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri), a leader in logistics and transportation, was recently recognised with ‘Best Shipping Line of the Year – Breakbulk Operator’ award at the India Maritime Awards 2017.

The ceremony, one of the most prestigious annual awards programmes for India’s maritime industry, was held recently at The St. Regis Hotel in Mumbai in the presence of a number of industry stalwarts from the maritime and logistics sectors.

Held every year, the awards is organised by Daily Shipping Times, the oldest and most widely read shipping newspaper in India.

Captain Jiten Bhosale, Bahri’s country manager for India, received the award on behalf of the company, said a statement from Bahri.

Ahmed Al Ghaith, president, Bahri Logistics, said: “We are proud to have won such a coveted award against very strong competition.”

“This accolade confirms we are on the right path to achieving our goals and strengthens our resolve to expand our presence in India, which is an important strategic market for Bahri,” he said.

Matthew Luckhurst, vice president – liner services, Bahri Logistics, said: “The recognition bears testimony to our commitment to the Indian market as well as the trust reposed in the company by our growing base of customers.”

“We believe the Indian maritime sector has boundless potential for growth, and the country’s ongoing investments in upgrading its port and allied infrastructure are creating significant business opportunities that we are keen to capitalise on,” he added.

Bahri recently opened a new office in Mumbai as part of efforts to consolidate its presence in the fast-growing Indian maritime industry.

Bahri India works with major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Tata, Maruti, Mahindra & Mahindra, Atlas Copco, and JCB for moving cargo exports out of India.

Bahri also works with its partner Höegh Autoliners for shipment of Volkswagen units to Veracruz, Mexico, it added. – TradeArabia News service
