(MENA) Sara Expands Fleet to 6 Vessels
The National Shipping Co. of Saudi Arabia, or Bahri, has taken delivery of a new dry-bulk carrier, Sara, expanding its fleet capacity.
The carrier was built by Hyundai Vietnam Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of Hyundai Mipo Dockyard. The new addition extends Bahir’s dry bulk fleet to six vessels.
“The delivery comes against the backdrop of the global COVID-19 pandemic, underlining our commitment to expanding our business and upgrading our services, even in the most challenging of times,” said Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO of Bahri.
Bahri is one of the largest maritime services provider in the world and along with a fleet of breakbulk vessels also operates several double-hull very large crude carriers, chemical carriers, dry bulkers and multipurpose roll-on, roll-off vessels.
