Algeria – Algiers
DP World assumed management control of the Port of Algiers in early March 2009, in a joint venture shareholding with EPAL, the Algiers Port Authority. Algeria is particularly well positioned, close to deep sea routes, to serve as a gateway to its substantial hinterland and to become a significant transshipment centre over time.
As part of the 30-year concession, DP World has committed to invest in new terminal handling equipment and redevelop the main container terminal. Priorities include increasing terminal efficiency and productivity as well as reducing vessel wait and berthing time and container dwell time.
