DP World Australia has reported strong growth in container throughput and efficiency at its terminals.

It said waterside performance increased in 2021 compared to 2020, particularly in Sydney, where volumes increased 14% year-on-year, while crane productivity increased by 10%.

The company said all its terminals in Australia lifted crane productivity.

DP World group chairman and chief executive officer Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem is currently on a tour of the company’s facilities across the country, visiting. His tour includes the Sydney Terminal and Port Logistics Park, Brisbane Terminal, Melbourne Terminal and Melbourne Logistics Park and Fremantle Terminal.

Speaking to management and staff at Brisbane Terminal, Bin Sulayem underlined the importance of end-to-end logistics solutions for customers who need greater supply chain resilience, from factory floor to the retail door.

“Innovation drives us, the integration of our four business pillars will make a strategic difference and set us apart from the competition. Diversifying beyond just Ports and Terminals with our expanding Logistics business is vital for growth”, Bin Sulayem said. He said Australia is well placed to take advantage of this diversification strategy.

DP World Australia CEO Andrew Adam said: “It was a pleasure welcoming the chairman on his Australian tour of our facilities across the country. We are extremely proud of our team’s achievements in Australia and commitment to building on this momentum further, to continue to deliver value to our customers. As we move towards an end-to-end Logistics provider, we look forward to expanding our service offerings, particularly in our Logistics business, to ensure we are continuously delivering consistent and reliable end-to-end service performance for our customers and the Australian supply chain”.
