On the docks at DP World

The UAE’s strategic geographic location, in the center of the trade routes from the far-east and the west, makes it a prime port for the shipping industry.  The tour of DP World’s Jebel Ali Port was impressive as the port is part of the Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza).  DP World is one of the largest marine terminal operators in the world with 30,000 employees, 49 terminals across 31 countries.  DP World’s flagship facility is in Dubai and it is ranked among the top ten container ports worldwide.  David Bigelow said that “the port personally mesmerized him due to his love for boats and sailing.”
