DP World at a Glance

DP World Limited is incorporated in the Dubai International Financial Centre and is a dual primary listed company, having been accepted for admission to trading by NASDAQ Dubai in 2007 and to the official list of the London Stock Exchange in 2011.

We have a portfolio of more than 65 terminals across six continents, including container terminals, non-container terminals and new developments in India, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East4. Container handling is our core business and generates more than three quarters of our revenue. In 2013, we handled 55 million TEU5 across our global portfolio. With a committed pipeline of developments and expansions, our capacity is expected to rise to more than 100 million TEU by 2020, in line with market demand.

We operate our portfolio under three regions:

  • Middle East, Europe and Africa
  • Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent
  • Australia and Americas

Middle East, Europe and Africa

Our UAE operations are central to our portfolio and are comprised of four terminals, including our flagship facility at Jebel Ali, one of the largest terminals in the world. Jebel Ali is undergoing major expansion work, with one million TEU added in 2013 and four million TEU to be added in 2014, which will take capacity to 19 million TEU.

In the Middle East, we also operate a terminal in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). In North Africa we operate two terminals in Algeria in addition to a container terminal in Sokhna (Egypt), where we also have the concession to run a major expansion project.
