A recent article from Arabian Aerospace reported that more than 21 employees from various departments at APM Terminals Bahrain have undergone Six Sigma training and have become Green Belts. APM Terminals Bahrain is the operator of the Khalifa bin Salman Port, one of the newest ports in the Arabian Gulf.
The training provides the employees with tools that will enable them to form, lead, and mentor teams on projects that will produce high returns for the company, the article stated. The Lean Six Sigma principles are in line with the company’s desire to be at optimal operational efficiency. The Khalifa bin Salman Port is one of the only mixed use ports in the region, offering services that include sea freight, shipping, and logistical services with the industry’s high international standards.
APM Terminals is located in 67 countries, with an annual revenue of $4.33 billion and with 20,300 employees. In 2013, five facilities from APM Terminals were named among the world’s most productive terminals by the U.S.-based Journal of Commerce Group. Headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands, the company strives to meet the ever-changing needs of global trade in economically, environmentally, and socially responsible ways.
There’s a reason that globally successful companies such as APM Terminals turn to Lean Six Sigma to provide their employees with the tools necessary to offer more efficient business. That reason is simple: It works. Whether your business is large or small, you too have access to Lean Six Sigma training in an online format that allows you to obtain certification where ever you may be.
