Jebel Ali to equip port with fleet of Autonomous Internal Terminal Vehicles

DP World, UAE Region, and the autonomous vehicle, robotics and AI specialist DGWorld have entered a contractual agreement to equip Jebel Ali Port with a fleet of Autonomous Internal Terminal Vehicles (AITVs), including all related integrations in the existing operation processes and infrastructures.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The autonomous vehicles and related technologies will support the port’s initiatives and strategy of introducing digitalisation and newest technologies as the new global standard for traditional port operations and supply chains, and to enable the future of trade.

Under the contract, DGWorld will deliver and integrate its autonomous technology at the existing ITV fleet in multiple phases, with the goal to further increase the overall efficiency of the terminal and reduce the overall size of the currently used fleet.

"At DP World, UAE Region, we employ today's frontline technologies such as robotics, automation, Internet of Things, Big Data, virtual reality and cybersecurity to build and sustain our efficiencies. As a trade enabler, technology has powered and underpinned our capabilities as an essential economic service at a time when the UAE needs us most. Digital technology will continue to drive smart trade for DP World, UAE Region and help us create a better future for all,” said Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and managing director, DP World, UAE Region.

Bilal Al-Zoubi – DGWorld founder & CEO, added: “We are so proud of the trust received by DP World as one of leading global port operators and smart trade enablers to work under their umbrella to deliver these advanced AI, Robotics & Autonomous Technologies.”

Previous trials of this new technology have shown that it is capable of unlocking new potentials for efficient and economical automation of already existing container terminals in combination with the intensive utilisation of new AI-based software solutions, which have been integrated by the teams of both parties. {/mprestriction}
