Bahri to Set Up JV Company with Suez Canal Authority

National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) is exploring possibilities with the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) on establishment of a joint Egyptian-Saudi shipping company.

Namely, the two sides sealed a strategic agreement on cooperation in maritime transport on Wednesday, Bahri said.

Under the deal, the duo has decided to conduct a feasibility study on the joint venture company that would be headquartered in Egypt.

The join venture company would be engaged in transporting products and the materials required by the Suez Canal Axis Development project.
