Khalifa Bin Salman Port
Khalifa bin Salman Port (KBSP) which opened for business on April 1st 2009, is well positioned to be a premier transshipment hub for the Northern Arabian Gulf.
Located on 110 hectares (ha) of reclaimed land, the port has a 1,800m quay which includes a 900m2 container terminal served by four 61m post-Panamax cranes, as well as general cargo, Ro-Ro and passenger facilities.
KBSP’s strategic location in the middle of the Arabian Gulf, together with its deep-water berths and approach channel enables it to accept the largest oceangoing container vessels and its direct overland links to the mainland of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia positions the port as a major regional distribution center.
Located in Hidd Industrial Area, the port is only 13km away from the Bahrain international Airport and 5km purpose-built causeway. Access to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia via the King Fahad Causeway is a mere 30km drive.
Under the management of private operator, APM Terminals, a global terminal operator, the port is one of the most modern in the Arabian Gulf, able to handle container vessels with an efficiency matching that of the most productive ports in the world. The Ports & Maritime Affairs supervises and regulates the port’s functions in line with the concession agreement.
