DP World will now offer rail or barge services at approximately 95% of its European terminals as it looks to provide more resilient and sustainable transport services across the continent.
The global end-to-end logistics and smart trade enabler has committed to investing in intermodal transport across the region to offer improved services to customers, while also looking to reduce the number of carbon emitting trucks on Europe’s increasingly congested roads.
The forward-looking firm and its customers have benefitted significantly from its recent investments in rail infrastructures at its operations in Turkey and the UK, while its upgraded services in Rotterdam and Antwerp continue to be fundamental to the huge business levels moving in and out of the important Hinterland region.
Rashid Abdulla, CEO, DP World – Europe, CEO, commented:
“Demand for express delivery has soared in recent years and we believe that is only going to continue due to consumer expectations around time, efficiency and sustainability as companies and end users look to understand more about the carbon footprint of their goods."
