Dubai-based DP World has opened the first smart logistics centre in Peru connected to Callao Port, the container terminal it operates near the country's capital city of Lima.

The port operator said in a statement that the new facilities will help deliver full data to the port and customs, and will enable clients to control their goods using their own devices.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, DP World Group chairman and CEO, added that the company is planning to open more logistics centres across Peru to ease container traffic on Callao terminal. 

DP World Callao is a greenfield terminal in the port of Callao. Although the annual operational capacity of the terminal is only 800 TEU, DP World Callao handled 1.4 million TEU, thanks to deployment of high-tech equipment making it one of the busiest terminals operated by DP World globally. 

Sulayem said: “The new platform is designed to drive trade flow in the surrounding area, west of South America, with focus on making customers happy through providing smart logistics services that ensure time saving and cost efficient cargo movement and management between the logistics center and the port of Callao.

“This inauguration comes in line with DP World Group’s commitment to developing and deploying state-of-the-art technology in its global ports portfolio of 77 marine and inland terminals worldwide, aiming to enhance global ports industry and boost growth in world trade and economy.”
