About DP World
DP World has a portfolio of more than 65 marine terminals across six continents(1), including new developments underway in India, Africa, Europe, South America and the Middle East.
Container handling is the company’s core business and generates around 80% of its revenue. In 2012, DP World handled more than 56 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container units). With its committed pipeline of developments and expansions, capacity is expected to rise to more than 100 million TEU by 2020, in line with market demand.
DP World has a dedicated, experienced and professional team of 28,000 people serving its customers around the world, and the company constantly invests in terminal infrastructure, facilities and people to provide quality services today and tomorrow, when and where customers need them.
In taking this customer-centric approach, DP World is building on the established relationships and superior level of service demonstrated at its flagship Jebel Ali facility in Dubai, which has been voted “Best Seaport in the Middle East” for 18 consecutive years.

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 over 175 years.
