 The National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia, Bahri, will be making its Posidonia debut this June to promote its diverse offering of marine services which include logistics, shipping and transportation for VLCCs, Chemicals, General Cargo and Dry-bulk vessels, as well as Ship Management, Freight Forwarding and Container Service Yard.

Better known as Bahri, Arabic for sea, the company intends to leverage its Posidonia 2014 participation as a platform to promote its services and achievements, present the developments in the region, interact with other key players from the industry, increase its customers’ base and gain more visibility in front of a global audience of potential clients.

“Posidonia is the world's most prestigious trade shipping event and Bahri is making its debut in the hope that our presence will boost our brand and help us achieve higher level of excellence in the global logistics services sector,” said Engr. Saleh N. Al-Jasser, Chief Executive Officer.

Joining Bahri at Posidonia this year will be the Dubai Maritime City Authority, which aims to use the event to position the emirate among the world’s top maritime centres.

H.E. Ahmed Butti Ahmed, Executive Chairman of DMCA, says Posidonia is of particular importance as a leading interactive platform aimed at encouraging communication among decision makers from across the world's maritime industries.

“It will discuss the latest developments and best practices to overcome emerging challenges and create a bright outlook for the future. DMCA’s participation will focus on Dubai’s experience as one of the world’s major hubs for maritime trade in view of its strategic location as a gateway between East and West, in addition to its highly competitive logistics services, investment environment, advanced infrastructure, and tax exemption,” Ahmed said.

Meanwhile, DMI Diesel Offshore, a specialist mechanical equipment service provider which operates out of its Singapore and Dubai hubs will make a comeback to Posidonia following its inaugural outing in 2012.

Representing the company’s operations, Desmond Koh, Sales Manager of DMI Singapore and Ram Shringi, General Manager of DMI Dubai hope that during Posidonia 2014, they will be able to interact with their international clients, increase their market base in Greece and showcase their capabilities to existing and potential clients.
