DP World Australia to enter phase of expansion

Supply chain operator, DP World Australia, is looking to take its supply chain offerings to the next level through innovation and further integration beyond ports and terminals.

DP World is also working to enhance its offerings across its terminals. Five new Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes have just commenced service at the Sydney Terminal, with another five on the way in 2023.

A new lease has also been agreed on for the Fremantle Terminal, enabling additional forklifts and a new quay crane to be ordered.

DP World Group Chairman, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, is currently on a tour of the company’s facilities across Australia and underlined the importance of end-to-end logistics solutions to staff at the Brisbane Terminal.

“Innovation drives us, the integration of our four business pillars will make a strategic difference and set us apart from the competition,” he said.

“Diversifying beyond just Ports and Terminals with our expanding Logistics business is vital for growth.”

DP World Australia CEO, Andrew Adam, said it was a pleasure welcoming Sulayem on the country-wide tour.

“We are extremely proud of our team’s achievements in Australia and commitment to building on this momentum further, to continue to deliver value to our customers,” he said.

“As we move towards an end-to-end Logistics provider, we look forward to expanding our service offerings, particularly in our Logistics business, to ensure we are continuously delivering consistent and reliable end-to-end service performance for our customers and the Australian supply chain.”

All of DP World’s terminals in Australia lifted crane productivity, allowing the company to meet demands of higher volumes on customer vessels.
