Bahri Chemicals Joins Maersk Tankers, Cargill as Pool Partner

Bahri Chemicals has joined Maersk Tankers and Cargill’s joint medium range (MR) pool launched in September this year.

With the addition of the four vessels, the MR pool will increase to more than 65 vessels, bolstering the pool’s commercial presence in the Middle East.

The ships in question are Bahri Rose, Bahri Tulip, Bahri Jasmine and Bahri Iris, which will deliver to the pool from January 2020 onwards.

“The positive and trusting relationship we have had with Maersk Tankers over the past years, as well as the possibility of benefiting from the pool’s digital ambitions to increase earnings, were among the drivers that led to our decision to entrust the pool with the future commercial deployment of these 4 of our tankers,” said Claus Breitenbauch, President at Bahri Chemicals.
