Global trade enabler takes home three prestigious trophies
DP World won three prestigious recognitions at the recently held TLME Excellence Awards 2019 in Dubai.
The Lifetime Achievement Award 2019, presented by the UAE Federal Transport Authority, was won by Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem. The award was accepted on his behalf by Mr Shahab Al Jassmi, Commercial Director of Ports and Terminals, DP World, UAE Region.

The terminal operator also won Global Trade Enabler of the Year 2019 Award for undertaking various trade promotion initiatives across the world, cementing its reputation as a huge figure in the global trade sphere.
DP World’s flagship port Jebel Ali also won Port of the Year 2019, continuing a tradition as one of the world’s leading ports, with next-generation container terminals recently launched and being at the forefront of the global smart port network.
DP World has maintained its excellent reputation despite many challenges in 2019, with a global economy somewhat flat after the US-China trade war wrangle and a dispute with the Djiboutian government regarding the Dolareh Container Terminal.
Despite winning the case, on more than one occasion, in an international court, complications continued to hinder DP World.
However, difficulties aside, DP World has continued to mark itself as perhaps the world’s most famous terminal operator going into 2020.
TLME CEO Sam Khan said: “Ever since I created TLME, DP World have been the model company in our sector, I often look to them for inspiration, as they’re always willing to drive the sector forward into brave new places.
“While I wasn’t surprised to see them scoop three awards, given I have first-hand experience of their amazing operations and impact, I can say I was delighted to see them get the recognition they deserve.”
