Maersk and DP World Jebel Ali Port have entered a long-term partnership through which both parties will collaborate on various aspects of service delivery and work towards a common goal of decarbonising logistics.
The long-term strategic partnership will give priority berthing for Maersk vessels, support for Maersk’s customers and implement new processes to improve quayside productivity, all leading to faster gate turnaround times at Jebel Ali Port and reduced bunker fuel consumption.
These are alongside visibility tools, which will allow Maersk’s customers to benefit from real-time information relayed by DP World to plan their supply chains better and ultimately cut carbon emissions.
Jebel Ali’s success has been built on progressive collaboration with partners such as Maersk, enabling us to combine our operational efficiencies and expertise to ensure we deliver the best end-to-end solutions to our customers
Shahab Al Jassmi, Vice President – Ports & Terminals, DP World UAE.
According to Al Jassmi, “this collaboration will help achieve our goal of cutting CO2 emissions by nearly 700,000 tonnes over the next five years.”
In January 2022, DP World entered a strategic partnership with the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping to undertake intensive research and development to find practical ways to decarbonise the global maritime trade industry.
Maersk has the ambition to achieve net zero emissions by 2040 across the entire business with new technologies, new vessels, and green fuels. DP World has committed to becoming a carbon-neutral enterprise by 2040 and net zero carbon enterprise by 2050.
DP World Chairman and Group CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem announced plans in November to invest up to $500 million to cut CO2 emissions from its operations by nearly 700,000 tonnes over the next five years.
The reduction in carbon emissions represents a 20% cut from 2021 levels, through electrifying assets, investing in renewable power and exploring alternative fuels.
