DP World's business in Peru, which began with container handling at the Port of Callao, has expanded into a fully integrated maritime and logistics operation, catering to the needs of customers across the entire supply chain.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World, visited Peru's chief port – the Port of Callao - to assess progress of the project.

"Our operations in Peru show in action DP World's strategy of enabling smarter global trade," said Bin Sulayem.

"We run ports, logistics hubs, trucking companies and maritime services providing our customers in Peru with seamless services at every stage of the supply chain" WAM reported.

He added, "Peru is an optimum illustration of how we are applying around the world the know-how learned at Jebel Ali Port and JAFZA in Dubai. It is a benchmark of what we aim to achieve bringing greater prosperity to the countries in which we work, and to the UAE."

Since building the greenfield Port of Callao, DP World has increased its investment in Peru.

The company acquired Cosmos Agencia Maritima S.A.C., which offers maritime services.

Reach into Peru was extended when DP World bought Neptunia S.A and Triton Transport S.A, which run logistics hubs, warehouses, bonded storage and trucking.

According to WAM, the integrated platform of supply chain services supports customers doing business in Peru and beyond.
