Bahraini Port Named Top Facility in the Gulf
MANAMA, Bahrain, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Shipping management company APM Terminals says Bahrain's Khalifa bin Salman Port is one of the most productive in the Gulf.
"Everything is being done to make life easier for everyone who comes to the facility," APM Terminals CEO Marco Neelsen said.
The port transacts with more than 1,000 vessels a year and can dock more than six vessels at a time. At full capacity, the port can handle 37 containers per crane per hour, significantly reducing turnaround time.
"The quicker turnaround time also means the ships leave faster after coming in and they can then go slower to their next destination," Neelsen said. "This works out very well for the large ships that look forward to coming to Bahrain."
Plans for customers to track cargo and make payments online are in development.
