The accolades signify DP World's efforts in facilitating uninterrupted trade flow, solidifying the entity's status regionally and globally

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 23, 2021: DP World, the leading smart trade enabler bagged The Terminal Operator of the Year and The Technology/Innovations awards at the eighth annual Maritime Standard Awards. Held on November 22, 2021, under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman Emirates Airline and Group, the award ceremony witnessed the attendance of 800 professionals from various segments in the industry. 

The entity's long-standing commitment to innovation, its forward-thinking approach and its advancements in efficiency and productivity won them these accolades. The prestigious awards were received by Esam Khoori, Executive Director - Container Terminals, DP World UAE and Ibrahim Al Najjar, Director IT, DP World UAE respectively in the presence of industry leaders. As part of its commitment to support the industry, DP World sponsored the Maritime Standard Excellence Award, which was handed over by Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO & Managing Director, DP World UAE and Jafza to H.E. Omar bin Talal Hariri, President of the Saudi Ports Authority. 

Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO & Managing Director, DP World UAE and Jafza said: “It is encouraging to gain recognition for our role in providing the region with productive, efficient and safe trade channels and platforms. The awards are testimony to our integrated logistics model that is based on a unique holistic system. At DP World, we believe in ‘change what's possible. Our efforts are proof of our commitment to this goal. To ensure that we meet the requirements of the dynamic market and our customers, we strive continually to enhance our core competencies. Hence, we are always encouraging our teams to utilise the power of digital technology and automation to enhance delivery and results for customers. While we work to ensure that the global trade and logistics industry thrives, we also focus our efforts on driving growth in the UAE, which has reaffirmed its position as a global maritime hub.”

Facilitating supply chain efficiency
 
The terminal operator is known for its all-round excellence in handling container, bulk, specialist or general cargo, maintaining the highest standards of operational cost efficiencies, ensuring streamlined automation systems, digital innovation and sustainable operations, workforce protection and improved customer service delivery. DP World's container terminals in Jebel Ali Port boast a total capacity of 22.4 Mn TEU. The container throughput year-on-year is testimony to their rapid progress with the Jebel Ali Port handling 6.9 million TEU in H1 2021.

Powering the industry through technology

DP World's key projects that have revolutionised operations include CARGOES TOS+, a cloud-based Terminal Operating System (TOS); BOXBAY, its intelligent High Bay Storage (HBS) system through which DP World has completed more than 60,000 container moves so far at Jebel Ali Port and DP World Cargospeed, a partnership with Virgin Hyperloop One to enable fast, sustainable and efficient delivery of palletised cargo around the world. Recently, the entity also introduced a new fleet of Autonomous Internal Terminal Vehicles (AITVs) at Jebel Ali Port and ZODIAC, its fully-automated terminal operating system (TOS) in Container Terminal 3. 

As the premier maritime commercial gateway with access to more than 3.5 billion consumers, DP World has been a key economic driver for the emirate of Dubai and the UAE. Through its flagships, the poly-functional Jebel Ali Port and the integrated business hub Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza), the entity contributes 33.4 per cent to Dubai's GDP.
