Ports & Terminals
DP World Annual Report & Accounts 2021
We have expanded our global network of ports and marine terminals with a corporate culture that relishes change
Customers look to us to handle their cargo movement in the most efficient way possible – it is therefore very important that we manage their costs effectively as they consolidate gains in an established market or target growth in an emerging region. Since the 2000s, we have expanded our global network of ports and marine terminals with a corporate culture that relishes change. We are deeply committed to investing in innovation to enhance our efficiency and maintain state-of-the-art safety and security practices.
DP World handled 77.9 million TEU in 2021, with volumes increasing by 8.9% versus industry growth of 6.5%. This outperformance is due to our continued investment in high quality assets in the right locations and the delivery of our strategy to offer integrated supply chain solutions to beneficial cargo owners.
Our priority has been to keep trade moving but with more connected service offerings that tie into our ports. For example, the development of new free zones helps us offer an integrated trade solution to our beneficial cargo owners. The customers who would simply come to us for a port-to-port transaction can have an end-to-end supply chain solution with our integrated service offering.
