CEO Message


Guided by our vision to connect economies, share prosperity, and drive excellence, Bahri has been making great strides in the global transportation and logistics sector through the provision of full door-to-door services. 

From starting its operations in 1978 with just four multi-purpose vessels, Bahri has emerged as a global leader in the transportation and logistics industry. Over the last few years, in particular, Bahri has firmly reinforced its credentials as an industry leader by becoming the world’s largest owner and operator of VLCCs with over 40 vessels and a total fleet of over 90. In addition, we are the largest owner and operator of chemical tankers in the Middle East. Our flexible fleet deployment strategy enables us to maximize our tonnage by allowing us to offer our vessels on both, time-charter basis as well as on the spot market. 

Today, Bahri continues to maintain a healthy financial standing, owing to the company’s unrelenting commitment to customer service excellence, investment in employees. 

Our ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications are a testament to our unfailing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety. In addition, Bahri is also part of an elite group of operators that call at US ports to meet the US Coast Guard’s QUALSHIP 21 program’s most stringent quality and safety standards requirements.

Our extensive talent development programs and initiatives allow us to leverage our human capital and our global teams’ collective years of expertise, experience, and knowledge of the transportation and logistics sector to maintain our leadership position. 

Through our strategic agreements and joint ventures with industry leaders including Saudi Aramco, SABIC, ARASCO, Bolloré, and Bunge.  We are creating new vision, opportunities and possibilities for the industry. The establishment of a new shipyard for the offshore sector at Ras Al-Khair Industrial City in the Kingdom – our joint venture with Saudi Aramco, Lamprell, and Hyundai Heavy Industries – is one such example. 

In addition, we are also pioneering the transformation of the industry by leveraging Big Data and advanced analytics through our Bahri Data business unit, which is dedicated to creating an industry-wide transformative impact through cross-functional initiatives. 

As a company whose business imperatives are aligned with the Kingdom’s roadmap for sustainable growth, we take great pride in being able to play a leading role in transforming Saudi Arabia into the go-to logistics hub for the region, connecting three continents namely Asia, Europe and Africa, as envisioned under Saudi Vision 2030.
