Solid six months for DP World

[ August 1, 2012   //   ]

DP World handled 28.2 million teu at its 60 worldwide terminals in the first half of 2012, 7.5% ahead of the same period last year. Like for like gross volume growth was up 5.4%. Most of the growth came from the Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent region where there was a 12.1% increase in volumes to 13.3m teu. The Europe, Middle East and Africa region grew 3.2% to 11.6m teu, with weaker trade across Europe masking the stronger performance across the rest of the region including the UAE which handled 6.6m teu in the first six months of the year, 7.3% ahead of the same period last year. Americas and Australia volume grew by 6.1% to 3.3m teu as growth in the Americas mitigated a more challenging environment in Australia.
