Our History

APM Terminals Bahrain B.S.C. (c) is a joint venture with YBA Kanoo Holdings of Bahrain. The company was established in 2006 with the purpose of operating port, marine and related services within Bahrain and its waters.  Container operations commenced 2009 after the-state-of the art Khalifa Bin Salman Port was built on reclaimed land at Hidd, west of the capital of Manama, replacing the older Mina Salman facility.

The newly built Khalifa Salman Port (KBSP) currently features four STS cranes with a container outreach of 18 rows, capable of handling vessels of 10,000 TEU capacity with an annual throughput capacity of 1 million TEUs. Managing one of the few multi-purpose ports in the region, we provide a wide range of services at KBSP, including the provision of container operations, General Cargo, RORO and break bulk projects, alongside our Marine and logistical services that are comparable to the highest international standards.  We are committed to providing a world-class facility for our customers, and are continuously looking at further enhancements and developments.
