Like all new DP World marine terminals, DP World Doraleh was designed to facilitate deployment of the latest Integrated Security Solution (ISS) technologies, and to speed compliance with international standards such as ISO 28000:2007. Together, these systems and procedures make DP World terminals among the safest in the industry.

ISO 28000: 2007 certification is a critical part of DP World’s ongoing membership in the U.S. Customs’ Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT); DP World Doraleh’s compliance paves the way for its participation in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Megaports Initiative, fitting key terminals worldwide with radiation portals capable of detecting dangerous nuclear and other materials.

DP World Doraleh, whose capacity is currently 1.2 m TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units), opened in early February, 2009.

In 2006, DP World became the first global port operator to adopt the ISO 28000:2007 standard. DP World aims to have all its terminals ISO 28000-compliant by 2012.

Joost Kruijning, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, Africa Region, said:

‘The fact that DP World Doraleh achieved ISO 28000: 2007 accreditation six months after opening is a testament to hard work and solid planning. DP World is committed to remaining an undisputed leader in efforts to secure the global supply chain.’

Jerome Oliveira, General Manager, DP World Doraleh / DP World Djibouti said, ‘DP World Doraleh is a world-class facility, whose mission is to deliver the best customer service in the industry. Achieving ISO 28000: 2007 certification is proof of our determination to provide a safe, secure environment for our customers, employees and visitors.’
