DP WORLD CHAIRMAN AND ELON MUSK DISCUSS TESLA TECHNOLOGY FOR DP WORLD
DP World Group Chairman and CEO Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem and Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk have discussed potential uses of Tesla technology for DP World’s global operations in a meeting at the World Government Summit in Dubai.
Topics revolved around the use of Tesla battery solutions for renewable energy storage in the global trade enabler’s ports and terminals in the fast growing markets of Africa, India and Latin America.
The company’s 77 marine and inland terminals in 40 countries form one of the most diverse and comprehensive operational networks in the world. Mr. Bin Sulayem is now also exploring possible implementations of Tesla’s state-of-the-art technology to further enhance DP World’s impact on global trade.
DP World’s Rotterdam World Gateway is already employing driverless cars at its terminal, while several other DP World operations are in the process of implementing the new technology.
Tesla’s decision to set up its regional headquarters in Dubai, which was announced at the Summit, complements DP World’s vision to adopt innovative and sustainable transport solutions across its portfolio.
