DP World Subcontinent handles 50 million teus across terminals

DP World’s Subcontinent region has set industry benchmark by being the first container port operator in India to successfully handle more than 50 million TEUs across its terminals.

Mr Rizwan Soomar, CEO and Managing Director, DP World Subcontinent, said, “Since the last two decades, DP World has played a key role in the development of India’s port sector. Today, we have successfully introduced a series of new services and technological innovations that have strengthened supply chains, benefitting Indian industries. India is one of our most important markets and we continue to focus on supporting its growth over the long term.”

DP World has invested in the development of 5 international gateway ports in India and handles over 30 per cent of India’s container trade. Last year, DP World announced its intention of seeking opportunities in the country, worth over $1 billion over the next few years. The investments could cover ports, inland container depots, SEZs, FTWZs, inland waterway transport and expansion of existing intermodal rail services for rolling stock. The company is committed to support the government’s landmark projects like Sagarmala and Bharatmala and reducing the costs of logistics.
