(MENA) New 3 Million-tonne Terminal
Breakbulk carrier the National Shipping Co. of Saudi Arabia, or Bahri, has signed a partnership with the Saudi Agricultural and Livestock Investment Co. that will include construction of a new grain-handling terminal.
The new terminal is expected to require significant breakbulk activity during the construction phase and will deliver production capacity of 3 million tons a year once complete, gradually increasing to 5 million tons annually thereafter.
“Our work at Bahri balances demand and supply, harnessing big data to efficiently manage and streamline our fleet operations. Today, we are seizing new expansion opportunities in cooperation with economic entities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to diversify our offerings,” said Mohammed Al-Sarhan, chairman of Bahri.
Bahri owns and operates a fleet of six multipurpose vessels as well as crude oil tankers, chemical and product carriers, and dry bulkers. The firm is a global event partner for Breakbulk exhibitions.
