Bahri Wins Top Award at Dubai Maritime Event



National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri), a global leader in logistics and transportation, said it won the ‘Ship Owner/Operator of the Year’ award at the recently concluded Maritime Standard Awards 2016, held in Dubai, UAE.

The third edition of the prestigious awards took place under the patronage of HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, and chairman and chief executive, Emirates Airline and Group, to recognise and celebrate the industry’s most outstanding performers, said a statement from the company.  

Hisham Alnughaimish, vice president, Bahri Oil Transportation, said: “It is a matter of great pride and honour for Bahri to receive these coveted accolades, especially at a time when we have firmly intensified our efforts and approach to business growth, to continue to reinforce our leadership position in the region.”

“These achievements are a strong measure of the success of our long-term business strategy and our continued focus on driving greater value for our stakeholders,” he said.

“We are extremely proud to attribute our success to our entire global team whose dedication and never-ending pursuit of excellence have been fuelling the company’s growth journey to new milestones,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bahri is also taking part in the Breakbulk Middle East 2016, the only exhibition and conference in the region specifically for the project cargo and breakbulk industry, being held in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The company is represented by Bahri general cargo’s president Ahmed Al Ghaith, and liner director Matthew Luckhurst.

Al Ghaith said: “Breakbulk Middle East 2016 provides us with a great opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with customers along with the right visibility and exposure. More importantly, it helps us to highlight our commitment to the regional industry and our concerted efforts in developing the red sea, gulf and Indian subcontinent regions.”

“With the global maritime industry evolving at a breakneck speed, innovation is at the core of our business philosophy and we are continuously investing and deploying Big Data-driven models and solution to integrate ports, agents and offices across the world as well as reconfiguring our network with a sharp focus on driving growth and expansion,” he added.

Luckhurst added: “Despite uncertain global economic conditions, Middle East construction projects remain the primary business for our company’s general cargo service, which is contributing strongly to our overall performance.”

Breakbulk Middle East which kicked off on October 23 will run until October 26.
