DP World tightens grip with new arm
DP WORLD Logistics Australia will be the partner for Australian companies looking for transport and intermodal solutions.
As part of this unique re-branding, a new business Botany Intermodal will be housed within DP World Logistics Australia.
The move into landside logistics is part of a long-term strategy to move beyond the port gate, offering efficiencies to customers and other stakeholders in the chain.
DP World Australia managing director and CEO Paul Scurrah says the new DP World Logistics Australia brand and Botany Intermodal business in the Port Botany precinct was a natural extension of a local and global network stretching across DP World’s 70 international container terminals.
“As a critical link in the cargo logistics chain, we’re growing our Australian business in a way that makes sense,” Mr Scurrah says.
“This new intermodal business aligns with our plans to develop operations that complement DP World Australia’s stevedoring business extensive supply chain.”
With more than 25 years’ experience in the shipping, logistics and stevedoring industry, Mark Hulme will lead the new DP World Logistics Australia business as chief operating officer logistics.
“DP World Logistics Australia will offer fast and efficient container co-ordination, movement, cleaning, repairs, refurbishment and storage services to customers who are transiting container freight into and out of the terminals,” Mr Hulme said.
“Botany Intermodal is connected to the Southern Sydney Freight Line, which will drive improved rail efficiency and speed of service for adjacent stevedoring operations.”
