Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 14 May, 2019:  DP World, UAE Region has been recognised for its efforts to create a more efficient and sustainable supply chain when it was awarded the Supply Chain Sustainability Award at this year’s Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) Supply Chain Conference. Mohammed Sulaiman, Business Development Manager of DP World, UAE Region, received the award on behalf of the company at a ceremony held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dubai’s Festival City.

The Supply Chain Sustainability Award recognises organisations that initiate best practices in supply chain management through programmes or projects that have a noticeable impact on the economy, environment, or society. 

DP World has introduced numerous initiatives towards building a sustainable supply chain in recent years. On the port operations side, 60 manual Automatic Rail Mounted Gantries (ARMGs) in Terminal 2 were retrofitted to be automated, resulting in savings of AED 23 million per year. The company has also launched several green initiatives, from creating the largest solar power array in the Middle East to power Jafza to implementation of self-driving fleet of trucks. 

Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region said:

“We are pleased to receive this prestigious award as it recognises our efforts to help create a better supply chain and a prosperous UAE. Our pioneering door-to-door logistics model has created one of the most robust and efficient supply chains in history that is suited to the Digital Age, as it allows us to position ourselves and support our customers at every step while being flexible enough to incorporate numerous new technologies such as blockchain, IoT, and cloud computing.”

“DP World’s goal over the last 40 years has remained constant – we seek to enable efficient and profitable trade that our people and our nation can benefit from. As the logistics landscape continues to evolve, we will continue to innovative and develop solutions and services that will make trade better and faster, to the benefit of everyone in the UAE.”

We have become as a key economic growth engine for Dubai and the UAE through the synergistic trade mechanism it has created between its flagship Jebel Ali Port, its Parks and Zones such as Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) and National Industries Park, and support services and platforms such as Dubai Trade and World Security.
Jebel Ali Port and Jafza in particular have grown to have a significant impact and are driving forward economic diversification. The two entities jointly contribute to 33.4 per cent of Dubai’s total GDP. Jafza accounts for 23.9 per cent of total foreign investment inflow into the emirate, while the port accounts for 42 per cent of Dubai’s total trade value.
