Bahri participates in UAE Maritime Week

Saudi shipping company Bahri participated in the fourth edition of the UAE Maritime Week, the Middle East’s first comprehensive maritime event, held from Oct. 28 to Nov. 1 in Dubai.

Hosted by the Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) under the the patronage of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, crown prince of Dubai and chairman of the executive council, UAE Maritime Week gathered a number of local, regional, and international maritime pioneers to explore current and future trends in the industry.

Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO of Bahri, was invited to the Dubai Maritime Summit, the region’s first, major maritime dedicated summit, held as part of UAE Maritime Week on Oct. 28. On behalf of Bahri, Aldubaikhi accepted the “Dubai Maritime Innovation Award,” which recognizes the company’s outstanding performance and contributions to the advancement of the industry.

Bahri also showcased its innovative and technology-driven maritime solutions at Seatrade Maritime Middle East, the region’s biggest maritime exhibition, which took place from Oct. 29-31 at Dubai World Trade Centre. 

“Events, such as UAE Maritime Week, will help accelerate the expansion of the maritime sector, which in turn will drive growth in the regional economies, particularly in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. The two leading events provided us with an excellent opportunity to connect with our customers and stakeholders, and showcase our industry-leading maritime offerings. We will leverage insights gathered from these events to inform our future maritime logistics and transportation solutions to deliver on our short- and long-term growth strategies,” said Aldubaikhi.

In addition, Bahri received two awards at the 15th edition of Seatrade Maritime Awards, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, and Africa, during a ceremony held at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai, on Oct. 28. Aldubaikhi accepted the “Shipping Company of The Year” and the “Maritime Logistics Award” titles on behalf of the company.
