Saudi Arabian line adds Jaxport to service
Bahri General Cargo, also known as the National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia, will add the port at Jacksonville, Fla. to its East Coast calls in April 2013.
Roy Schleicher, interim chief executive officer for Jaxport, told the audience at the State of the Port luncheon last week that three other "international steamship lines" will also add Jacksonville to their line-up in spring.
Schleicher declined to name the three other shipping lines, but said they will coordinate with other lines to share space on each other's ships while rotating through Jacksonville.
Bahri's stops include India, the Mediterranean, Canada, New York, Baltimore, Wilmington N.C., Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., and Houston. Schleicher reported Bahri would call at Jacksonville twice a month.
