Shiohama Station opened on October 25, 1919 as a station on the Ise Railway. The Ise Railway became the Sangu Express Electric Railway’s Ise Line on September 15, 1936, and was renamed the Nagoya Line on December 7, 1938. After merging with Osaka Electric Kido on March 15, 1941, the line became the Kansai Express Railway's Nagoya Line.[2] This line was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu.[2] A new station building was completed on June 23, 1986.

The freight terminal was opened as part of the Japanese Government Railways freight operations on June 1, 1944, subsequently part of the Japanese National Railways (JNR). Containerized freight operations were handled from April 1, 1962 to July 1, 1975. With the privatization and dissolution of the JNR on April 1, 1987, operation of the freight terminal came under the Japan Freight Railway Company, which resumed container operations from June 20, 1988 to March 16, 1996.
