DP World - A Success Story

Dubai Ports World (DP World) is one of the largest marine terminal operators in the world with 42 terminals spanning 22 countries, and a dedicated, experienced and professional team of more than 30,000 serving customers in some of the most dynamic economies in the world.

DP World provides quality marine terminal services designed to enhance customers’ supply chain efficiency. It does so by effectively managing container, bulk and other terminal cargo. It also provides logistics, infrastructure development and consultancy services where its experience adds significant value for customers. The company constantly invests in terminal infrastructure, facilities and people, working closely with customers and business partners to provide quality services today and tomorrow, when and where customers need them. In taking this customer-centric approach, DP World is building on the established relationships and superior level of service demonstrated at its flagship operations in Dubai, Port Rashid and Jebel Ali. The latter port has been voted "Best Seaport in the Middle East" for 12 consecutive years. DP World’s international achievements were recognized in 2006, when Lloyd’s List awarded it the prestigious Port Operator of the Year Award.

In early 2006, DP World acquired P&O, including P&O Ports. The combined 2006 throughput of the company was around 42 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container units) from the Americas to Asia, with global capacity of more than 48 million TEU. That capacity is set to increase significantly in coming years with a committed pipeline of expansion and development projects in key growth markets, including India, China and the Middle East. Capacity will rise to around 84 million TEU by 2016. In addition to DP World marine terminals business, it also operates the following companies:  P&O Ferries: The leading name in its sector, providing services for freight operators, leisure and business travelers on a wide number of routes between the UK and Europe.  P&O Maritime Services: A specialist provider of maritime services to industry and government. It has operations worldwide from Australia to Ireland.  P&O Estates: Develops and manages property interests in the US, the UK and Continental Europe.

DP World is part of a larger group that includes P&F World, Nakheel, Istithmar and the holding company Dubai World. Close association with sister companies JAFZA and DC World means that DP World customers are able to benefit from an integrated approach to their business in Jebel Ali and a number of other ports worldwide. DP World is wholly owned by the government of Dubai.

The outstanding growth in Dubai Ports Container and General Cargo volumes over the last 3 years, (e.g. an average growth of 23%) spurred the acceleration of DP World -UAE expansion projects; particularly at Jebel Ali Port, to achieve the goal of delivering the highest level of satisfaction and services to all DP World - UAE customers. The expansion project at Jebel Ali Port consists of 2 stages.

Stage 1 has already commenced and is scheduled to be operational this year 2007. Stage 1 expansion is expected to increase storage and handling capacity by 2.2 million TEUs and a Quay length of 1,200m. In line with this forward thinking, DP World has commissioned a master plan together with an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the new mega port development. The EIA will ensure that the integrity of DP World - UAE neighboring industries remain intact and unaffected by the new mega port expansion. The driving concept behind this port development was to foster the advancement of a unique, world-class, state-of-the-art port facility which will enable Jebel Ali Port to continue to be a leading factor in the economic development of Dubai in the immediate and foreseeable future. This will be achieved through the utilization of the latest available technology in port and terminal
