Bahrain's Port
July 2013

Bahrain’s Khalifa Bin Salman Port (KBSP), which has been used as a transshipment hub for some of the Saudi traffic in recent months, is being viewed increasingly as a pivotal Northern Gulf hub and an alternative hub to carriers keen to grow their presence in the upper Gulf, a senior official says.

THE arrival at Khalifa Bin Salman Port of APL Antwerp, the largest container vessel yet to enter Bahrain’s waters, has been hailed as a “milestone” and a pointer to Bahrain’s growing position as a preferred transshipment hub. The ship was welcomed by APM Terminals, the port’s operator, and APL’s local representative office.
