DP World wins multiple categories at Golden Peacock Awards 2017

Global trade enabler DP World has won three  categories at the prestigious Golden Peacock Awards 2017, the annual business event  organised by the Indian Institute of Directors (IOD), the company said in its press release.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, DP World was voted  by business executives for the Leadership Award with DP World’s Nhava Sheva International  Container Terminal (N SICT) winning a distinguished award in the Innovative Product category.

Meanwhile, World Security, part of the DP World Group based in Dubai, won an award in the  Business Excellence category. 

Mr.  Bin  Sulayem was cited for his visionary leadership of DP  World and the industry and his  major contribution to the expansion of Dubai’s infrastructure, including ports and free zones,  which has supported the economic development of the United Arab Emirates. 

DP World Nhava Sheva excelled in the Innovative Produc t category with the introduction of a  new device  - a ‘Trailer Twist Lock Arrester’  – that  protects drivers by eliminating the need to  leave the safety of their cab. It prevents the misalignment of containers by limiting the  movement of the twist locks used  to hold containers in place on truck trailers. By reducing  human involvement it reduces the possibility of drivers getting injured in operational areas.
