Cosmos fully owns logistics service businesses Neptunia and Triton Transport and a 50 per cent stake in Peru’s second largest container terminal Terminales Portuários Euroandinos.

DP World has become the 100 per cent owner of CAM and will add another container terminal and warehousing, distribution and cargo handling services to its operations in Peru, which include a terminal at Callao.

“Latin America is a very important market for us and this move adds value for our customers in the region with logistics services to our existing container terminal in Callao and inland container terminal in Lurin,” said DP World group chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem.

“The acquisition underlines the confidence we have in Peru and the potential of its economy. As leaders of global trade, we believe the logistic sector in the country has great potential.”

The company also fully took over Empresa Brasileira de Terminais Portuários, Brazil’s largest private multi-modal port terminal, in December after increasing its stake.
