P&0 Maritime come to Australia
We have a long and rich history of port operations in Australia.
DP World Australia was once part of the now amalgamated Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company (“P&O”), a much-recognised presence in Australia since the British company opened their marine branch in Australia in the late sixties.
Dubai Ports International
In 1991, Dubai Ports International (DPI) was established, with its ﬁrst project at Jeddah Islamic Port.
Between 1999 and 2005 its expertise was applied to managing ports in the Middle East, India, and Europe.
1-Stop founded in Australia
A 50 percent joint venture with Patrick Terminal's established 1-Stop Connections, a container management system for ports that tracks consignments from pick up to final destination.
1-Stop is a world leader in developing innovative solutions for the global port community.
In acquiring international terminal business CSX World Terminals (CSX WT) in 2005, DPI formally bridged the network between East and West, with new operations in North Asia, and further expansion of their global network in Europe and the Americas.
Through CSX, DPI acquired a terminal in Adelaide, Australia.
DP World formed
Following the CSX WT acquisition, DPI officially merged with the Dubai Ports Authority (DPA) to become a single successful commercial entity - DP World.
The move was aimed at creating one of the largest port operators in the world.
