DP World launches global freight forwarding network

DP World launches global freight forwarding network

March 20, 2024 2:57 pm

DP World now operates 100 branches, launched in the last eight months in a bold move that has expanded its global freight forwarding offer, with more branches to come.

DP World inaugurated the latest in a string of more than 100 freight forwarding offices across the world, marking a significant expansion aimed at supporting customers navigating the complexities of global trade.

In response to increasing disruptions to global trade – from climate change, geopolitics and macroeconomic challenges – DP World has embarked on a bold initiative to bolster its commitment to its customers.

The offices already employ 1,000 staff, adding to DP World’s already 108,000-strong team and this is expected to grow significantly over the next 12 months, helping move more than 10% of global trade every year. In India, DP World has a strong freight forwarding network with offices in over 16 locations including major metros like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and tier I cities like Pune, Ahmedabad, Cochin, and Jaipur to name a few.

Fuelled by global trade disruptions, businesses are now prioritising dynamic strategies to build resilience into their supply chains, according to Economist Impact research. The traditional asset-light freight forwarding model, which moves cargo via third parties, has proven to be susceptible to disruption at key chokepoints and can have knock-on effects on inventory and fulfillment planning for businesses and their customers. 

With businesses seeking increased control over their supply chains, DP World’s expansion comes at a pivotal time for the global logistics and supply chain industry. By expanding its freight forwarding offering, with a focus on air and ocean freight, DP World will deploy its ‘toolbox’ of services or capabilities made up of ports, terminals, warehouses, trucks, rail and shipping services to increase control and resilience, supported by proprietary digital technology, whilst also working with complementary partners across the supply chain to boost efficiency.
