Main and Technical Sectors
Bahri, the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia, was established by Royal Decree no. M/5 on January 22, 1978. The Company adheres to a comprehensive strategy that outlines its vision of investment and expansion in the logistics and transportation sector locally and worldwide. As a result of this strategy, the Company underwent a significant period of transformation over the last four years. From its roots as a small shipping firm operating multipurpose vessels, Bahri became one of the largest logistics and
transportation providers in the world, occupying a leading position in the global maritime industry today. After 40 years of operations, Bahri continues to fulfil its aim of facilitating further development and success as well as building a robust network of clients inside and outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Our target is to establish a global and unrivaled reputation for quality, reliability and safety that supports our status as one of the world’s largest owners and operators of VLCCs, creating added
value for the Kingdom, shareholders and Company’s employees. As we are committed to innovation and applying best practices across all areas of our business, Bahri has been able to stay at the forefront of the maritime industry throughout its operational history while diversifying its business operations and expanding into new markets to support its position as a global leader in the logistics and transportation sector.

Bahri’s Strategy In 2018, Bahri continued to implement its strategy, which acts as a basis for its development vision and supporting investment in onshore, offshore and aviation-based transportation and logistics in the local and global markets. The Company had two overall aims over the year. Firstly, to increase its presence in the maritime transport sector, and secondly, to develop new business in non-maritime logistics. Our target is to establish the Kingdom
as a global hub for the efficient transportation of goods and resources by improving its supply chain. Bahri’s role is to connect major logistics companies with local talents and utilize global innovation by establishing a network of logistical centers across the Kingdom. This is seen as a key strategy to improve Saudi Arabia’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI) ranking, which currently stands at number
one regionally and among the top 50 globally. Bahri has started establishing a presence in non-maritime transport operations by establishing strategic logistical partnerships that will serve as a basis for new business activities. Bahri’s maritime transport business also grew organically through the diversification of its product output and expansion of its current value chain.
