[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Saudi Arabia’s state-run shipping company Bahri plans to expand its business in India, encouraged by the country’s consistent economic growth and its focus on manufacturing.
The shipping major handles complete transportation for Saudi Arabian national oil company, Aramco and has been associated with Indian corporates like Reliance Oil in the crude oil transportation segment. It counts Tata and the Mahindra groups among its breakbulk services clients.
Increasing exports of automobiles and grater impetus on manufacturing bodes well for the company in India.
Bahri is also the exclusive break-bulk carrier for the Ministry of Defence in Saudi and the company is open to exploring options like that in India, said Ibrahim Al-Omar, Chief Executive of Bahri.
Al Omar said that while the company has worked with Indian clients for long through agents, setting up an office would mean better connectivity with its existing and potential customers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
