General Cargo Transportation

Bahri's General Cargo Sector, formerly liner division carries full containers, roll-on roll-off and project cargo from U.S. east and gulf coast ports and Canada to Jeddah, Dammam, Dubai, Jawaharlal Nehru Port and Port Qasim. The company views itself as a niche carrier specializing in "underdeck" business, which consists of RoRo and project cargoes.

The RoRo vessels employed by Bahri's General Cargo Sector are specialized in carrying general, projects cargo and several types of RoRo cargoes and are equipped with heavy lift cranes; and each ship with a dwt of approx. 26,000 tons. This allows the carrier to accommodate a wide variety of cargoes. The company presently operates 5 RoRo vessels and addition 1 vessel will join the fleet in 2014.

Project freight bound for the Middle East is a specialty of Bahri and and contributes to a healthy, mutually-beneficial U.S.-Middle East trading relationship. Project cargo can include gas and oil exploration machinery, equipment for desalinization plants and apparatus for the construction of sub-electric stations.

Project cargo General Cargo Sector is a complex business requiring continual commercial presence in the market; specialized ships, an extensive operations and vendor network, and highly trained staff and crew. In spite of Bahriís identity as a niche carrier, the Bahri General Cargo Sector has always been faced with strong competition from larger carriers with much broader scopes and bigger fleets

In light of this ever-increasing competition, Bahri continues to remain competitive, due in no small part, to excellent and personalized customer service; i.e; frequent sailings, competitive rates and effective equipment and intermodal resources; prompt, courteous and accurate "back-room" services such as documentation, billing and accounts payables/receivable processing; and timely regional adjustments to market trends and customer needs.

In 2003, the management of General Cargo Sector global operations was transferred from Corporate Office to Bahri (America) Inc. in Baltimore. Also, centralization of the pricing and marketing functions to North America has significantly streamlined the rates quotations and market analysis processes for the General Cargo Sector, thereby allowing faster rate responses, more-competitive service rates and timely market/customer adjustments in the container, Break-bulk and RoRo markets.

The company signed a contract with Hyundai MIPO to build 4 RoCon vessels with 2 optional additional vessels, expected to be delivered during 2012-2014. These ships are specialized in carrying general, projects cargo and several types of RoRo cargoes and are equipped with heavy lift cranes; and each ship with a dwt of approx. 26,000 tons.
