CAIRO : Bahri Logistics, one of the top 10 breakbulk carriers in the world, has added Alexandria to its portfolio of ports in Egypt.

The company, which is one of the six business units within Bahri, a global leader in transportation and logistics sector, said the addition of Alexandria will enable Bahri to offer breakbulk and Ro/Ro transportation service on its North American itinerary from key US ports to Alexandria and from Alexandria to the Middle East and India.

“Alexandria is our third direct port call in Egypt after Suez and Port Said," remarked Mr. Ahmed Al Ghaith, President, Bahri Logistics.

"Our decision to operate at this port comes after an increasing demand for logistics services to and from this destination, and this move will allow Bahri’s customers to take advantage of our growing regional connectivity and high flexibility through access to three direct port calls in the Country. In addition, this will also result in enhanced transit times and better service coverage," stated Al Ghaith.

The port will be serviced by Bahri Logistics’ fleet of new state-of-the-art multipurpose vessels on a regular liner schedule; four of which connect the US to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Major Ports in the Gulf, the Indian subcontinent and the Mediterranean, while the remaining two connect Europe to the Kingdom and key ports in the Gulf and the Mediterranean, he added.
