DP World no longer wants to be referred to as a ports and terminals business. The Dubai giant calls itself a multinational logistics company that has a growing shipping portfolio with a strong presence in the ropax, ro-ro, offshore and liner sectors.

P&O Ferries, P&O Ferrymasters, P&O Maritime Services and Unifeeder are grouped under the marine services vertical. Unifeeder chief executive Jesper Kristensen, who joined the DP World roster when the feeder container operator was acquired in 2018, now works a dual role as head of Unifeeder and group chief operating officer of the marine services vertical.
