OUR GLOBAL PRESENCE
Trade powers economies, improving lives globally. With over 103,000 employees across 75 countries, we’re making it simpler than ever for businesses to scale and succeed, anywhere on earth.
We’re proud of our UAE heritage. From our beginnings in 1972 as a local port operator in Dubai to a global logistics provider with operations in over 69 countries and across every continent.
In 1972, DP World began with a single port, Port Rashid in Dubai in the UAE.
In 1979, Jebel Ali port was opened, which today contributes 23.8% to Dubai’s GDP.
Since then, we have become the largest seaport in the Middle East with nearly 150 businesses across 6 continents.
