Bahri, a global leader in transportation and logistics, has opened its second North American office in Houston, Texas, home to the Port of Houston, one of the busiest ports in the world.
Bahri (America) Houston office will be led by Cliff Kuhfeldt, an 18-year shipping industry veteran, who will be responsible for the US Gulf and South Atlantic territory reporting to Steven Blowers, Country Manager, Bahri Logistics (America).
The new office, located in Granite Briarpark Green in Houston, was inaugurated by the Group’s Chief Executive Officer Eng. Ibrahim Al-Omar, in the presence of Sultan Al Angari, Consul General of Saudi Arabia in Houston, Ricky Kunz, Chief Commercial Officer, Port of Houston Authority, Wael Al-Sarhan, Vice President – Marketing and Communications, Bahri, Steven Blowers, Country Manager, Bahri Logistics (America), and other senior company executives and staff.
Highlighting the significance of the new office, Eng. Ibrahim Al-Omar, Group CEO, Bahri, said: “The Port of Houston is the leading breakbulk port in the US and is consistently top-ranked in terms of foreign waterborne tonnage. Moreover, Bahri is the leading direct RoCon liner service provider between the US and the Middle East. Through this port, the company offers its customers integrated transportation solutions and door-to-door cargo services, which makes the US-Middle East corridor one of the most important routes for Bahri. By enhancing our presence in Houston, we can further capitalise on our leadership and the ever-growing demand for transportation solutions, while providing unmatched customer service.”
As a long-standing customer of the Port of Houston Authority, Bahri has been calling the port for nearly three decades. However, with its new Houston office, Bahri intends to further grow its presence in this important market.
Steven Blowers, Country Manager, Bahri Logistics (America), added: “We have been doing business with the Port of Houston for many years, and now, by investing and opening up a new office in Houston, we will be much closer to our customers, which will help us serve them better, further strengthen our relationships and build new ones.
