His Excellency Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World, underlined the importance of DP World Caucedo in serving the wider Caribbean region as a hub port as he concluded his tour of the company’s marine terminals in South America with a visit to the Dominican Republic terminal.
Mr Bin Sulayem was accompanied on his tour of DP World’s terminals in Peru, Argentina, Suriname and Dominican Republic, as well as the new development in Brazil, by senior company officials including Chief Executive Officer, Mohammed Sharaf, Senior Vice President, Government Relations, Suhail Albanna and Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Americas, Matthew Leech.
In March last year, HE Leonel Fernandez, President of the Dominican Republic and Mr. Bin Sulayem officially inaugurated the second phase of DP World Caucedo, which increased Caucedo’s overall handling capacity by 25 per cent to 1,250,000 TEU (twenty foot equivalent container units) annually. The expansion consists of an additional 300 meters of deepwater berth, two new broad yield mobile cranes in addition to the existing five gantry quay cranes. A sixth quay crane and three further rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes will arrive in April as the final part of the capacity expansion initiated in 2009.
