Bahrain’s General Organisation of Sea Ports (GOP) today announced that all sea ports in the Kingdom of Bahrain, including Khalifa bin Salman Port (KBSP), are operational at all times.
Ports are receiving ships normally and providing all necessary services, such as loading and unloading and delivery and receipt of containers, without any delay or interruption. In partnership with APM Terminals (APMT), KBSP’s operating company, GOP has put a crisis management strategy in place to deal with all abnormal situations, including the current unrest in the Kingdom. This planning enables GOP to deal with staff shortages, and maintain a consistent workflow, ensuring the provision of integrated services to all port users without interruption.
Regarding the marine ban which has been imposed in some areas, this does not include commercial ships arriving and departing to and from the Kingdom of Bahrain on international voyages. Therefore, GOP calls upon all dealers with Bahrain’s ports including agents and traders who wish to receive their goods; to go about the usual procedures in receiving their goods according to normal regulations and official times specified by the port’s operator.
