      DP World表示,2018年上半年,其集装码头的货运量达到3560万TEU,比2017年同期增长了4.8%。其中,阿联酋的集装箱货运量达到770万TEU,增长了0.2%。
      该公司表示:“2018年上半年全球贸易持续增长,DP World的三个经营地区货运量亦是如此,尤其是我们在欧洲和澳大利亚的码头。”
      公司的董事长兼首席执行官苏尔坦·艾哈迈德·本·苏拉耶姆(Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem)表示,公司贸易的增长“肯定了我们在关键市场部署相关能力和经营多元化投资组合的战略。我们很高兴看到公司在欧洲和澳大利亚的码头货运量继续实现增长,并期待今年下半年的新投资带来更多回报。”
DP World reports higher container volumes
DP World said its container terminals handled 35.6 million TEUs in the first half of 2018, 4.8 percent more than in the same 2017 period. Volumes in the United Arab Emirates were 7.7 million TEUs, up 0.2 percent.
“The first half of 2018 continues to see an upswing in global trade and all three DP World regions delivered growth, particularly our terminals in Europe and Australia,” the company said.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, the chairman and chief executive officer of the company, said the company’s growth is “an affirmation of our strategy to deploy relevant capacity in key markets and operate a diversified portfolio. We are pleased to see our terminals in Europe and Australia continue to deliver growth and still expect to see increased contributions from our new investments in the second half of the year.
“Whilst geopolitical headwinds and recent changes in trade policies continue to pose uncertainty to the container market, first-half volume performance demonstrates that our portfolio is well positioned to deliver growth,” he said.
