DP World Australia is part of the DP World global group of companies, which has a portfolio of more than 65 marine terminals across six continents including new developments underway in India, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
Container handling is the company’s core business and generates more than three quarters of its revenue. In 2013, DP World handled 55 million twenty-foot equivalent container units (TEU). With our committed pipeline of developments and expansions, we anticipate capacity will rise to more than 100 million TEU by 2020, in line with market demand.
DP World has a dedicated, experienced and professional team of around 30,000 people serving its customers around the world. The company constantly invests in terminal infrastructure, facilities and people to provide ongoing quality services when and where customers need them.
DP World began as a local port operator in 1972 at Port Rashid in Dubai (UAE), where the company continues to be headquartered.
DP World Australia's four port operations are DP World Brisbane, DP World Fremantle, DP World Melbourne and DP World Sydney. DP World acquired the four Australian terminals when it purchased the UK listed P&O in 2006, later forming DP World Australia Limited in a strategic partnership with Citi Infrastructure Investors and PSP Partners in 2011. DP World Australia's 50 percent shareholdings in 1-Stop Connections and AWH position us to offer an end-to-end supply chain service to customers.
