DP World is set to invest US$35 million in 2023 to expand and modernise its facilities located on the left bank of Brazil’s Port of Santos.

With the investment, the company plans to increase annual movement capacity from 1.2 million TEUs to 1.4 million TEUs and expand the size of the quay from 1,100 metres to 1,300 metres. The terminal currently inhabits 845,000 square metres, with an additional 130,000 square metres available for expansion.

To date, over BRL3 billion (US$580 million) has been invested in the implementation and expansion of the terminal, which is strategically located with access to land, road and rail, enabling large-scale multi-purpose operations.
