Ports and Terminals

a Leading enabler of global trade

We focus on helping our customers handle their cargo movement, from points of production to points of sale, in the most efficient way possible. We support them as they consolidate gains in an established market, or stretch for growth in an emerging region.

Ports & Terminals plays a key role, operating a strategically located network of ports and marine terminals in both mature and high-growth markets. Since the 2000s we have gradually expanded this global network through a combination of acquisitions and concession agreements, demonstrating a commitment to the locations where we operate that can last for decades.

EMBRACING CHANGE

To Lead the Future of World Trade

With an open and proactive approach to gathering new ideas we have developed a culture that is always ready to embrace change. This has led us to invest in smart technology and innovation to enhance our efficiency, resulting in developments such as our remote control rooms, and enabling us to maintain state-of-the-art safety and security practices.

These have improved the efficiency of our quayside operations, enabled us to diversify our teams, and reduced risk on site. They demonstrate how we are always looking to improve our productivity while providing efficient movement of goods and resources.

innovation first

To Lead the Future of World Trade

Innovation is driving us to invest in new ways to move cargo to and from our quaysides more efficiently. This has seen us develop intermodal transport services in several of our ports and terminals, to increase the speed of cargo movement.

This quest for greater efficiency is also behind our investment in hyperloop technology, which could greatly increase the speed at which we move freight around and between our expansive facilities. Our aim through all of this is simple: we want to help our customers, while managing their costs effectively and supporting trade in the nations where we operate.

Our allies in business

DP WORLD SOUTH KOREA

THE Alliance, which launched in April 2017, is one of the top three global shipping alliances, the consequence of more than a decade of consolidation within the shipping industry worldwide. As THE Alliance came together it began to face up to challenges around terminal capacity in Busan, South Korea. Each of the five shipping lines involved – Hapag-Lloyd, NYK Line, MOL, K-Line, and Yang Ming – had to split their cargo volumes between two or more terminals. This split operation resulted in inefficiencies and substantial additional costs, especially in transshipment and equipment management. DP World’s Pusan Newport Company (PNC) offered a capacity commitment that would guarantee THE Alliance would only need to use one terminal. This offer won PNC a contract with THE Alliance to be the shipping group‘s exclusive terminal in Busan. The move allowed THE Alliance member lines to achieve service rationalisation, schedule reliability, improved equipment management and transshipment cost savings. Now, combined annual throughput volume of THE Alliance in Busan is 3.5 million TEUs, representing 17% of the entire port volume and, according to one of the member lines, transshipment costs in Busan have been reduced by 15%.
