ABOUT DP WORLD HQ
DP World is one of the largest marine terminal operators in the world, with 65 terminals across six continents, including new developments underway in India, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Its dedicated, experienced and professional team of nearly 36,000 people serves customers in some of the most dynamic economies in the world.
In January 2005, DPW transformed its network with the strategic acquisition of CSX World Terminals, the international terminal business of CSX Corporation, with important port operations in Hong Kong, China, Australia, Germany, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and the new development of Pusan Newport (PNC) in South Korea.
In March 2006, only one year later, DPW took another giant leap forward with the acquisition of P&O. This acquisition brought the combined container throughput of both companies from 35 million TEU in 2005 to nearly 42 million TEU in 2006. In 2009, DP World handled more than 43.4 million TEU across its portfolio from the Americas to Asia – an increase of 8% on 2007.
In 2014, DP World handled 60 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container units). With its committed pipeline of developments and expansions, capacity is expected to rise to more than 100 million TEU by 2020, in line with market demand.
The acquisition also brought with it an exciting pipeline of projects that will continue the future expansion of DP World, independent of acquisitions, across key markets globally.
