Dubai-based port operator and logistics company DP World is set to open its first logistics centre in the district of Duran in Ecuador, the media reported.
Around 90 percent of the developmental work of DP World’s logistics centre in Ecuador has been completed so far.
The centre will offer services to the entire foreign trade chain in Ecuador, in Posorja and the other port terminals in Guayaquil.
With regard to the new logistics centre, Nicolas Gauthier, chief executive officer at DP World in Ecuador told the media, “The work done so far is a source of pride for all the teams that have achieved this milestone despite the unprecedented challenges. The development of this logistics centre ratifies DP World’s commitment to Ecuador.”
Dubai-based port operator DP World has successfully completed the integration of its logistics acquisition-Unifeeder and Feedertech, the media reported.
The integration of Unifeeder and Feedertech will help DP World improve its global supply chain. It will also subsequently strengthen the capabilities of DP Word’s main ports in Dubai’s Jebel Ali, and ports in India, Africa and Europe.
Unifeeder, which recently acquired Feedertech, operates feeder and shortsea services around northern Europe and throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Africa regions.
Feedertech also provides similar services that connect ports in South East Asia, the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East.
