DP World and Einride have announced a groundbreaking partnership aimed at electrifying inter-terminal container flows at Jebel Ali Port, the 10th busiest port globally. This initiative represents the largest deployment of electric, autonomous freight mobility in the Middle East and is set to revolutionize transport efficiency and sustainability in the region.

Scheduled to commence by the end of 2024, the collaboration will rapidly scale up to support approximately 1,600 container movements daily. This expansion will be facilitated by a fleet of 100 connected electric trucks, managed through Einride Saga, an advanced digital operating system designed to optimize the efficiency of electric and autonomous road freight operations. Additionally, an autonomous pilot is scheduled for deployment in 2025.

Upon reaching full operational capacity, this initiative is expected to annually save up to 14,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) and 158 tonnes of nitrogen oxides (NOx).

Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO and Managing Director of DP World GCC, expressed DP World's commitment to enhancing trade sustainability through innovative solutions, stating, “Our partnership will drive greater operational efficiencies, further decarbonise terminal operations, and pioneer greener practices for the logistics sector.”

Robert Falck, CEO and Founder of Einride, emphasized the shared dedication to sustainability and innovation, stating, “By reshaping container transportation in Jebel Ali Port, we aim to set a new standard for sustainable transport practices, significantly curbing CO2 emissions.”

This collaboration is part of Einride's broader initiative with the UAE Government, aimed at accelerating the region towards sustainable shipping. Through the deployment of electric and autonomous vehicles, charging infrastructure, and transformative technology throughout the Falcon Rise grid, Einride aims to contribute significantly to a more sustainable and efficient future in shipping.

Jebel Ali Port's recent ranking as the 10th busiest container port globally underscores its strategic importance, and this collaboration represents a significant step towards achieving sustainability goals while maintaining operational excellence in the global logistics landscape.
