Dubai-based port operator and logistics firm DP World has recently announced the launch of its new digital cargo logistics platform called Cargoes Logistics. The digital platform will provide customers with a single-window solution for seamless and secure movement of cargoes.
Rizwan Soomar, the CEO and MD, Subcontinent, DP World told the media, “This announcement is a testament of our commitment towards enabling smart logistics globally. With Cargoes Logistics, our aim is to build and offer highly efficient, seamless and end-to-end transparent supply chains.”
“The new digital solution will simplify the container shipping experience providing visibility across all modes of transportation through smart enablement of IoT based solutions. We will continue to invest in technology and work with our customers to drive innovation, continually add new products and features and provide solutions to meet their global logistics needs.”
Earlier this month, DP World opened a new 11.5 acres empty container park at Southampton to increase storage capacity during the upcoming festive season. The new container park was developed with an investment of around £3 million.
The new park is part of DP World’s ongoing £40 million investment to take the port at Southampton to the next level as a smart logistics hub – which will provide customers with speed, security, reliability and flexibility.
Recently, it was also reported that the firm is partnering with UK-based state-owned CDC Group to invest $1.7 billion to develop ports in Africa. DP World will invest around $1 billion in facilities at Dakar in Senegal, Ain Sokhna in Egypt, and Berbera.
