Background: The Kingdom of Bahrain is emerging as an attractive location for logistics services. In the course of one year, bottlenecks in procedures at the border crossing could be overcome. Furthermore, plans for connecting the port to the rail network have gained shape. In consequence, the country is now in an even better position as an entry gate to the Gulf region. As a result, demand for production and logistics space is rising. TransCare supports this development on behalf of the government of the Kingdom of Bahrain.

As a consultancy focused on transport and logistics based in Wiesbaden, TransCare GmbH is in business since 1993. In addition to Germany, the company is active for clients based in Central and Eastern Europe, in the CIS states and in the Gulf region. More information is available at
