About DP World
DP World (1) is a leading enabler of global trade and an integral part of the supply chain.
We operate multiple yet related businesses – from marine and inland terminals, maritime services, logistics and ancillary services to technology-driven trade solutions.
We have a portfolio of 77 operating marine and inland terminals supported by over 50 related businesses in 40 countries across six continents with a significant presence in both high-growth and mature markets. We aim to be essential to the bright future of global trade, ensuring everything we do has a long-lasting positive impact on economies and society.
Our dedicated team of over 37,000 employees from 110 countries cultivates long-standing relationships with governments, shipping lines, importers and exporters, communities, and many other important constituents of the global supply chain, to add value and provide quality services today and tomorrow.
Container handling is the company’s core business and generates more than three quarters of its revenue. In 2015, DP World handled 61.7 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units) across our portfolio. With its committed pipeline of developments and expansions, the current gross capacity of 79.6 million TEU is expected to rise to more than 100 million TEU by 2020, in line with market demand.
By thinking ahead, foreseeing change and innovating we aim to create the most productive, efficient and safe trade solutions globally.

DP World & P&O Heritage
DP World takes great pride in its association with the venerable history of P&O and is committed to preserving and protecting this famous British name. We have a dedicated in-house team of curators who maintain and preserve the substantial collections of artefacts and archives that make up the P&O Heritage Collection.
This website is designed to allow our collections – and the heritage of P&O – to be more accessible to the public, thereby continuing to keep alive the memory of the enormous contribution P&O has made to numerous people and countries around the world for 180 years.
