Bahri takes center stage at Breakbulk Americas 2017

The Bahri booth at Breakbulk Americas was opened by Sultan bin Abdullah Al-Angari, consul general of Saudi Arabia in Houston, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the first day of the annual event.
Bahri, a global leader in transportation and logistics, participated in Breakbulk Americas 2017, which took place in Houston, Texas, from Tuesday through Thursday.
Bahri said the participation “reinforced its position through its three-decade-long presence in the US, marked by excellence and achievements.”
The Bahri booth at Breakbulk Americas was opened by Sultan bin Abdullah Al-Angari, consul general of Saudi Arabia in Houston, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the first day of the annual event. It was attended by Amal Al-Ruwaii, director for trade and investment at the Saudi embassy in US; Ricky Kunz, chief commercial officer, Port of Houston Authority; Jeffrey Blair, director for Europe and Middle East, Greater Houston Partnership; Wael Al-Sarhan, senior vice president — marketing and communication, Bahri; Matthew Luckhurst, vice president — liner services, Bahri Logistics; and Stephen Blowers, US country manager, Bahri Logistics.
Al-Sarhan, senior vice president — marketing and communication, Bahri, said: “Houston is home to one of the busiest ports in the world and Bahri is considered one of the most important clients to Port of Houston Authority due to the strong relationship between Bahri and the port that extends back more than three decades. Our participation in one of the world’s largest industry-leading exhibitions reinforces our growing presence in this strategic region and is considered another important milestone after the opening of our Houston office earlier this year. Breakbulk Americas is the ideal platform for Bahri to showcase its capabilities and expertise to its global customers, and highlight its leadership position in project cargo transportation and logistics in the West-Arabian Gulf corridor.”
“As a Saudi organization, we are extremely proud of what we have achieved so far. Through our active participation in local and international events, we are keen to contribute effectively toward achieving the Saudi Vision 2030 and strengthening its position as a global leader in the transportation and logistics sector and as an important global logistics hub that connects the three continents of Asia, Africa, and Europe together,” added Al-Sarhan.
Bahri Group, which is the world’s largest VLCC owner and operator with 40 oil tankers, continued with its fleet expansion by recently accepting delivery of “Rimthan,” a 300,000-dwt carrier built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI) in South Korea, with an expected six more VLCCs to be received by 2018.
