From local port operator to global trade enabler.
At DP World we have a heritage to be proud of, growing from a local port operator to a global trade enabler. From our beginnings in 1972 at Port Rashid in Dubai (UAE), we now have a team of more than 50,000 people working in 150 operations around the world.
Our operations include ports and terminals, but also industrial parks, logistics and economic zones, marine services and marinas. In fact, our business has changed so much since the early days of operating ports and terminals, we can now be an integral part of your supply chain, tailoring innovative solutions that address your challenges and manage your costs.
Our goal is to be instrumental in building the bright future of global trade, ensuring that everything we do leaves a lasting positive impact on economies and the world.
We help economies grow and nations prosper.
Our dedicated team has cultivated lasting relationships with governments, shipping lines, importers and exporters, communities and many other important components of the global supply chain to add value and deliver quality services today and tomorrow.
In 2017, DP World handled 70 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) across our portfolio. With our committed portfolio of developments and expansions, the current gross capacity of 88 million TEUs is expected to increase to over 100 million TEUs by 2020, in line with market demand.
