Bahri and Rickmers-Linie agree space charter

April 22 - Rickmers-Linie and the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (trading as Bahri Liner) have recently signed a space charter agreement in the trade between the USA, the Red Sea and the Middle East.

The agreement covers ports on the US Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, as well in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, the UAE, Iraq and the Yemen.

It enables mutual chartering of space between Rickmers-Linie and Bahri Liner on vessels operated by each other and authorises both to coordinate arrangements with regard to that space in the aforementioned trades.

Ulrich Ulrichs, ceo of Rickmers-Linie indicated that the space charter agreement allows both lines to broaden their networks to offer customers a wider choice of possibilities via the liner services of each company.

Matthew Luckhurst, liner director of Bahri Liner believes that joint customers will value the added possibilities offered by this space charter agreement.

Last year Rickmers-Linie signed a connecting carrier partnership with Swire Shipping, covering the trade between the Middle East and India with Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, via Singapore.
