The construction of this installation is the result of a collaboration agreement that was signed between the two companies for the development of warehouses for controlled temperature logistics services within the DP World Economic Zones in the region. These include DP World Posorja in Ecuador and DP World Callao in Peru, the Dominican Republic being the first operation where they will establish a warehouse with these characteristics.
The activity which marked the formal start of the construction of this refrigerated installation took place within the operations of DP World located on the Punta Caucedo peninsula, in the presence of the President of the Republic, Mr. Luis Abinader, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, global CEO of DP World, Mr. Neal Rider, CEO of Emergent Cold Latin America, and the CEO of DP World operations in the Dominican Republic, Mr. Morten Johansen.
During his speech Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, global CEO and Chairman of DP World, declare that this alliance with Emergent Cold Latin America and the subsequent construction of a last generation refrigerated warehouse, fit perfectly with DP World´s future vision and their growth plan, not just for the region, but also for the country. This plan consists of the development of 3,000,000 square meters of land for the development of free zones for manufacturing and continuing to promote the country as an attractive destination for manufacturing and logistics companies that installed themselves, operate, and make investments in near-shoring format.
“DP World in the Dominican Republic is a world-class logistics provider. After expanding our main berth two years ago, we have had unprecedented results, managing to create for the country new opportunities to generate new trade agreements, increase conductivity, and be more competitive.

DP World is a fundamental player in the region, and we share the commitment to gross in the global foods market. We are anxious to start work with DP World to provide more integral solutions for our clients,” Rider indicated.
