DP World tight­ens grip with new arm

Big Rigs - - NEWS -

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.”
