APM Terminals to build weighbridges at Bahrain port

MANAMA, June 2, 2018

APM Terminals Bahrain has started the construction of three new weighbridges to enhance the VGM (verified gross mass) service offerings at Khalifa Bin Salman Port (KBSP) in the Hidd area of Bahrain. 
The weighbridges strategically located to smoothen traffic flows, will include two new semi-automated 80-tonne weighbridges and a fully-automated weighbridge at the entrance and exit of the KBSP terminal respectively. 
With the construction of these pit-mounted weighbridges, which will have the weighing equipment and platform located below ground, container trucks at KBSP will be able to have easy and safer access to the weighbridge at road-level, without having any difficulties to get onto a separate ramp. 
This will further ease the movement of goods and services at KBSP, creating smoother traffic and will significantly reduce the queuing time and export transaction time for trucks by enabling double transactions.
The new weighbridges at KBSP are scheduled to be completed by September 2018.
Established in 2006, the company operates KBSP and provides marine services within Bahrain and its coastal waters, thus contributing to the growth of trade and commerce in Bahrain. 
Headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands, APM Terminals’ core expertise is the design, construction, management and operation of ports, terminals and inland services. 
A part of the AP Moller – Maersk Group, the company’s portfolio includes a Global Terminal Network of 22,000 professionals with 74 operating ports and terminal facilities and over 117 Inland Services operations spread over 58 countries.-TradeArabia News Service
