Khalifa bin Salman Port (KBSP) which opened for business on April 1, 2009 is well positioned to be the premier transhipment hub for the Northern 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 which enable it to accept the largest oceangoing container vessels, and its direct overland links to the mainland (Saudi Arabia and Qatar), position the port as a major regional distribution centre.

Located in Hidd Industrial Area, the port is only 13km away from the Bahrain international Airport and is linked to Mina Salman, the old port, by a 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 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.
