Double Award Win for DP World's UK Businesses
DP World’s UK terminals took home two prestigious awards at the Lloyds Loading List Global Freight Awards (2019).
The smart trade enabler won the Port Operator of the Year award for the second time in a row.
This accolade was awarded to the company’s UK business units, London Gateway and Southampton, which have enjoyed another year of high productivity and growth.
DP World Southampton also won the Product Innovation award for its leading hand tablet.
The product uses the latest mobile device and advanced technology to provide DP World’s leading hand operators, who are based on vessels, with access to the latest and live operational data.
Operators can now interact with the loading and discharging of a vessel in real time to make onsite decisions, improving productivity for customers and lowering costs.
