Dubai: DP World, UAE Region has been recognised for its efforts in creating an efficient and sustainable supply chain when it was awarded the Supply Chain Sustainability Award at this year’s Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) Supply Chain Conference. Mohammed Sulaiman, Business Development Manager of DP World, UAE Region, received the award on behalf of the company at a ceremony held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dubai’s Festival City.
The Supply Chain Sustainability Award recognises organisations that initiate best practices in supply chain management through programmes or projects that have a noticeable impact on the economy, environment, or society.
DP World has introduced numerous initiatives towards building a sustainable supply chain in recent years. On the port operations side, 60 manual Automatic Rail Mounted Gantries (ARMGs) in Terminal 2 were retrofitted to be automated, resulting in savings of Dhs23 million per year. The company has also launched several green initiatives, from creating the largest solar power array in the Middle East to power Jafza to implementation of self-driving fleet of trucks.
Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region said:
“We are pleased to receive this prestigious award as it recognises our efforts to help create a better supply chain and a prosperous UAE. Our pioneering door-to-door logistics model has created one of the most robust and efficient supply chains in history that is suited to the Digital Age, as it allows us to position ourselves and support our customers at every step while being flexible enough to incorporate numerous new technologies such as blockchain, IoT, and cloud computing.”
