Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 11 September 2018:  Global trade enabler DP World has been awarded the Gulf Business Innovator of the Year Award for its collaboration with Virgin Hyperloop One to develop the DP World Cargospeed system that will deliver on-demand freight at the speed of flight and closer to the cost of trucking.

The award was received on behalf of the two technology partners by Adnan Al Abbar, Senior Vice President - Planning & Project Management, DP World at gala ceremony hosted by Gulf Business magazine, in the presence of industry leaders, government dignitaries and the media.
