DP World teams up with LET18 January 2017
During the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2017, DP World, one of the leading enablers of global trade and the world's third largest container terminal operator, joined the Logistics Emergency Teams (LET). LET is now comprised of four of the largest global logistics and transportation companies, including Agility, UPS, Maersk, and DP World.
Stephen Cahill, Global Logistics Cluster Coordinator at the World Food Programme, welcomes the new LET member: “The response during the first phase of any humanitarian crisis is highly important for how local communities are impacted in the long term, and the expertise and resources that DP World brings will help support vital strategic relief efforts.”
Through the Logistics Emergency Teams, the WFP-led Logistics Cluster has access to an extensive global network of transportation and logistics expertise, meaning life-saving assistance can be provided more quickly and efficiently following natural disasters. The partnership between the Logistics Emergency Teams and the Global Logistics Cluster integrates public and private sector skills and knowledge for maximum impact, and we are pleased to welcome DP World to this collaboration.
