Global Divisions

We operate our portfolio under three regions: Australia and Americas; Middle East, Europe and Africa; and Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent.

A dedicated, experienced and professional team of over 36,000 people serve our customers around the world. We constantly invest in our people, terminal infrastructure, and facilities to provide quality services today and tomorrow, when and where customers need them.

Our portfolio has 70 marine terminals across six continents, including new developments underway in India, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. Container handling is our company’s core business.

Australia & Americas

Headquartered in Sydney, DP World's Australia Region employs over 2,000 people across terminals located in four of Australia's six state capitals. Long-term leases in place at each of our facilities assure that DP World will remain a key participant in the Australian market for many years to come, contributing on an ongoing basis to port development and expansion.

Our Americas portfolio consists of nine terminals across six countries, including a new development that is now operational at Embraport in Santos (Brazil). DP World currently employs some 1800 professionals across four terminals in both North and South America.
