The transport and logistics sector committee of the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) has recently convened a regular meeting at Bait Al Tijjar headed by committee chief and bureau member Mr. Abdulhakeem Al Shemeri. The meeting commended the Customs Affairs of the Ministry of Interior headed by Shaikh Ahmed bin Hamad Al Khalifa on the array of new and updated electronic services offered to the users. The meeting also deliberated about means of streamlining the logistics sector and called to upgrade services in Khalifa bin Salman Port by offering transport within the Port and increasing the containers section capacity. Mr. Al Shemeri underlined “The services provided by APM Terminals at Khalifa bin Salman Port are below the expectations of Bahraini importers and exporters.” He added “It is important to upgrade the services provided by the company to match the pace of the sector and the needs and requirements of the beneficiaries.” He concluded “It is very unfortunate that APM Terminals has no mechanism for communication with transport and logistics companies or clearing offices in case of an emergency or mishaps.”
