DP World has teamed up with shipping services provider A.P. Moller-Maersk (Maersk), to improve operational efficiencies, enhance customer service and collaborate on decarbonising.

Maersk’s customers will benefit from the partnership, which will improve quayside productivity and reduce bunker fuel consumption at Jebel Ali Port.

Additionally, DP World will provide Maersk’s customers with visibility tools so they can plan their supply chains better and mitigate carbon emissions.

Maersk will deploy two of its solutions for customers moving their cargo through Jebel Ali – Maersk Accelerate, a fast-tracking service through priority cargo handling, and Maersk Flex Hub, a cargo storage solution.

“Jebel Ali’s success has been built on progressive collaboration with partners such as Maersk, enabling us to combine our operational efficiencies and expertise to ensure we deliver the best end-to-end solutions to our customers. This synergy has allowed us to develop a successful ecosystem at Jebel Ali that continues to evolve and adapt to the dynamic markets we operate in. We will embark on this journey together to exceed our customers’ expectations,” stated Shahab Al Jassmi, vice president – Ports and Terminals, DP World UAE.

“This collaboration lets us offer solutions to help a key customer and reliable partner like Maersk to achieve their own sustainability goals. It sits alongside our own commitment to cutting our global CO2 emissions by nearly 700,000 tonnes over the next five years, in part by terminal vehicle electrification, sourcing renewable energy and increasing low carbon fuel use,” Al Jassmi added.

“In our journey as an integrated logistics provider, we look at every opportunity that can create value for our customers. DP World’s Jebel Ali Port has been a strategic partner to us for many years, and we have now extended our partnership with a clear focus on improving service delivery to our customers while reducing the carbon footprint through our operations together”, said Mads Skov-Hansen, head of Ocean Customer Logistics, Maersk West and Central Asia.

Meanwhile, in January 2022, DP World entered a strategic partnership with the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, an independent, not-for-profit organisation launched in 2020 to undertake intensive research and development to find practical ways to decarbonise the global maritime trade industry.

Maersk itself aims to reach net zero emissions by 2040 across the entire business with new technologies, new vessels and green fuels. DP World has committed to becoming a carbon neutral enterprise by 2040 and net zero carbon enterprise by 2050.

DP World group chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem announced plans in November to invest up to $500m to cut CO2 emissions from its operations by nearly 700,000 tonnes over the next five years. The reduction in carbon emissions represents a 20 per cent cut from 2021 levels, through electrifying assets, investing in renewable power and exploring alternative fuels.
