Dubai: DP World has launched the industry's largest asset management programme, covering its entire global operations.
The new asset management framework brings together all assets under one system, from quay and yard cranes, terminal yards, and berth equipment, to energy supply outlets and plant machinery.
The programme means assets are managed across the full portfolio rather than terminal by terminal.
DP World has awarded a contract to eAsset Management (eAssetM) to support the implementation of asset management practices globally.
DP World group chief executive, Mohammed Sharaf, said: "This comprehensive programme will roll out over three years and will establish a consistent and co-ordinated approach to manage our substantial assets across our global portfolio. By ensuring that our assets are used to their absolute optimal level, we improve efficiency and reduce costs, and we can be sure that we are providing top quality customer service from those assets."
