Bahri Logistics, one of the world’s leading breakbulk carriers, has added Alexandria to its portfolio of ports in Egypt. This will enable Bahri to offer breakbulk and ro-ro transportation services on its North American route, between key US ports and Alexandria, as well as from Alexandria to the Middle East, India, Europe and the Mediterranean.
Alexandria is the company’s third direct port call in Egypt, after Suez and Port Said. Ahmed Al-Ghaith, president, Bahri Logistics, says, “Our decision to operate at this port comes after an increasing demand for logistics services to and from this destination. This move will allow Bahri’s customers to take advantage of our growing regional connectivity, and greater flexibility, through access to three direct port calls in the country and will also result in enhanced transit times and better service coverage.”
The port will be serviced by Bahri Logistics’ fleet of six multipurpose ro-ro vessels on a regular liner schedule. Four of these vessels will offer connections to the US as well as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and major ports in the Gulf, the Indian subcontinent and the Mediterranean, while two will connect Alexandria with ports in the Middle East Gulf region, and the Mediterranean.
