DP World has agreed to acquire a majority 51% stake in a Ukraine container terminal.

The stake in TIS Container Terminal in the Port of Yuzhny, Ukraine complements the existing operations of DP World's P&O Maritime Services business through a joint venture with TIS Group, providing tugging, pilotage and other marine services in several Ukrainian ports.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, group chairman and CEO of DP World, said: "We are delighted to extend our Ukraine footprint with this venture and are excited about the significant growth potential of the terminal.

“Our goal is to build the industry's leading data-driven supply chain solutions through our global portfolio, creating opportunities for our customers to realise game-changing value and accelerate their cargo deployments.

“We believe the strategic partnership with TIS Group will enable the terminal to continue growing, further cementing TIS Container Terminal's position as the leading gateway to Ukraine."

The Ukrainian container market grew over 20% in 2019, and TIS Container Terminal has one of the most efficient railway connections in the region to major Ukrainian cities, supporting trade flows to the hinterland.

The acquisition is in line with DP World's strategy to develop data-driven integrated logistics solutions for moving cargo from the point of manufacture to final destination, deploying technology to remove inefficiencies in the supply chain, and focusing on fast-growing markets and key trade routes.
