DP World is one of the largest marine terminal operators in the world, with 49 terminals and 12 new developments across 31 countries. Its dedicated, experienced and professional team of nearly 30,000 people serves customers in some of the most dynamic economies in the world.
In January 2005, DPW transformed its network with the strategic acquisition of CSX World Terminals, the international terminal business of CSX Corporation, with important port operations in Hong Kong, China, Australia, Germany, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, and the new development of Pusan Newport (PNC) in South Korea.
In March 2006, only one year later, DPW took another giant leap forward with the acquisition of P&O. This acquisition brought the combined container throughput of both companies from 35 million TEU in 2005 to nearly 42 million TEU in 2006. In 2009, DP World handled more than 43.4 million TEU across its portfolio from the Americas to Asia - an increase of 8% on 2007.
The acquisition also brought with it an exciting pipeline of projects that will continue the future expansion of DP World, independent of acquisitions, across key markets globally.
