The Port of Ashdod is in talks for the first strategic collaboration of its kind with the giant company DP WORLD from Dubai in the Emirates.

A delegation from DP WORLD, led by Sultan Ahmad Ben Sulim, arrived for a meeting with Ashdod Port Company Chairman Orna Hozman-Bechor with the aim of forming a cooperation that will focus on the technological field.

The port of Ashdod, reported by the company, the largest port in Israel, has been in advanced talks for the past two weeks for cooperation with DP WORLD, which is responsible for transporting over ten percent of all containers in the world and with over 80 terminals worldwide.

In recent weeks, a series of meetings have taken place between the port’s chairman, Hozman-Bechor and CEO, Shiko Zana, with Sultan Ahmad Ben Sulim, the group’s chairman and CEO and the management team of the DP WORLD Group.

A delegation from the DP WORLD, led by the Sultan, attended a meeting held in Israel to discuss technological and operational cooperation.

The cooperation deals with a number of operational and technological components in the renovated 21st wharf, which will be the largest and deepest wharf in Israeli ports.

The guests offered the port the most advanced technology in the world in the field of containers, as well as the issue of turning the port of Ashdod into a regionally loaded port for DP WORLD, all while developing and strengthening the logistics home front.

The guests, for their part, showed great interest in the field of technological innovation in the port, especially in the field of cyber, and wanted to get acquainted with the project of establishing the technological incubator that is currently being carried out in an international partnership.
