DP World, Americold partner on global food supply chain

A new partnership between the global logistics company DP World and American temperature-controlled warehousing and transportation firm Americold aims to support the largest food companies in the world with a new standard in global distribution, "from farm to fork".

The two parties signed a partnership agreement on 18 November, that will enable multi-million US dollar investment in a more resilient, efficient, and sustainable global food supply chain.

"Our partnership with Americold has the potential to help us spread the benefits of trade to new people and new places; to push our sector to a more sustainable future and, to provide the global food industry with the world class solutions it deserves," commented Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, group chairman and CEO of DP World.

The first projects of the collaboration have already begun, according to DP World, while the signing of the deal is expected to further enable the exploration of strategic synergies between the two companies.

The combination of Americold’s global temperature-controlled infrastructure and strategic customer relationships with DP World’s global port infrastructure and end-to-end logistics solutions will result in unprecedented optimisation of global food flows, according to a statement.

The agreement was signed by Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group chairman and CEO of DP World and George Chappelle, CEO of Americold.

Chappelle commented, "With nearly 250 facilities in strategic locations around the world, we have become an indispensable component of global food infrastructure - from farm to fork. This partnership with DP World, who shares our commitment to customer success and global supply chain optimisation, will enable us to help our customers feed the world with less waste, lower cost, and more efficiency."
