Trade is the lifeblood of the global economy, creating opportunities and improving the quality of life for people around the world. DP World exists to make the world’s trade flow better, changing what’s possible for the customers and communities we serve globally. 

With a dedicated, diverse, and professional team of more than 106,000 employees spanning 75 countries on six continents, DP World is pushing trade further and faster towards a seamless supply chain that’s fit for the future.

DP World in the UK is at the heart of Britain’s trading future. We enable customers to move goods and materials smoothly and efficiently in and out of the UK and across their supply chains.

We operate the UK’s most advanced logistics hubs: two deep water ports at London Gateway in Essex and Southampton with access to freight rail terminals, and the rapidly expanding London Gateway Logistics Park on the doorstep of the capital.

In addition to our UK ports and terminals, we’re making investments in our fast evolving end to end supply chain proposition. Our business is constantly evolving with new technologies, new assets and new capabilities coming on stream all the time – and with this new jobs and career-enhancing opportunities.

We’re rapidly transforming and integrating our businesses -- Ports and Terminals, Marine Services, Logistics and Technology – and uniting our global infrastructure with local expertise to create stronger, more efficient supply chain solutions that can change the way the world trades.

What's more, we're reshaping the future by investing in innovation. From intelligent delivery systems to automated warehouse stacking, we’re at the cutting edge of disruptive technology, pushing the sector towards better ways to trade, minimising disruptions from the factory floor to the customer’s door – building the skills of the future along the way.  

We make a major contribution to the UK economy handling over £43 billion of goods a year. Taken together, London Gateway and Southampton move around 3.8 million TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units) or containers every year – that’s over 400 containers every hour of every day and enough containers to stretch from London to Buenos Aires….and back.

Our commitment to the UK’s trading future is underpinned by our participation in Thames Freeport. You can find out more about the freeport by visiting the website:

Why us?

DP World offers exciting and challenging roles within a growing international organization. We strive to hire and develop the right people, locally and globally, stimulating personal growth and self-development within an informal atmosphere. We offer a market competitive compensation package.

We were delighted to be named Sustainability Company of the Year at the 2023 Multimodal Awards, and many of our more recent innovations are designed to help customers meet their sustainability goals.

Our investment in rail at our two UK hubs is taking 300,000 trucks off the roads each year, while an all-electric berth will soon open at London Gateway. We cut our carbon emissions across Europe by 20 per cent last year and globally by five per cent.
