Playing an indisputable role in the growth and development of the maritime sector, Bahri has entrenched itself as a leading company globally in the logistics and transportation services over more than four decades. The Riyadh, Saudi Arabia-headquartered company steadily built its operation and expanded its market presence through its six business units – Bahri Oil, Bahri Logistics, Bahri Chemicals, Bahri Dry Bulk, Bahri Ship Management and Bahri Data.

With a strong fleet of 87 vessels and a global network of offices, Bahri offers a diverse range of onshore and offshore solutions to a rapidly growing local and international client base. The company is the leading direct full liner service provider from the US East Coast, Canada, and Gulf Coast ports to Jeddah, Dubai, Dammam, and Chennai connecting key ports on its way.

Bahri’s unfailing commitment to delivering quality-driven and reliable services has remained the mainstay of its success since its establishment in 1978. The company has consistently reported sustained revenue growth and profitability expansion as a testimony to its robust financial position.

Saudi Arabia’s logistics and transportation sector is at the heart of the Kingdom’s major economic transformation underway and Bahri has aligned its long-term business plans with the maritime goals of the ambitious Saudi Vision 2030 program. In keeping with its strategy, the company has formed partnerships with International Maritime Industries and Hyundai Heavy Industries to help establish an indigenous shipbuilding industry in the country.

Diversification has always remained the core of Bahri’s business strategy and a key driver of its enduring success.
