DP World Australia wins COSCO endorsement

SYDNEY: July 25, 2017. DP World Australia has set up a logistics stevedoring subsidiary DP World Logistics Australia and full-service container park Botany Intermodal as part of a long-term strategy "to move beyond the port gate", and offer customers transport and intermodal solutions.

DP World Logistics AustraliaManaging director and CEO Paul Scurrah said the move is a natural extension of a local and global network stretching across DP World's 70 international container terminals: "As a critical link in the cargo logistics chain, we're growing our Australian business in a way that makes sense.

"This new intermodal business aligns with our plans to develop operations that complement DP World Australia's stevedoring business," he added.

Botany Intermodal is connected to the Southern Sydney Freight Line and DP World expects the link will improve rail efficiency and speed of service for adjacent stevedoring operations.

"DP World Logistics Australia will offer fast and efficient container coordination, movement, cleaning, repairs, refurbishment and storage services to customers who are transiting container freight into and out of the terminals," explained chief operating officer Mark Hulme.

Last month DP World Australia became the "stevedore of choice" for all COSCO Shipping calls at its Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne container terminals.

COSCO Shipping managing director Oceania Yong Pan said that the company had demonstrated a level of service that set it apart in Australia: "Last year, we selected DP World Australia as our major stevedore service for our Australian flagship A3 services. My congratulations to all at DP World Australia for their efforts and commitment to COSCO shipping," he continued.
