“We are delighted to add Cosmos Agencia Marítima to our Americas region interests. Latin America is a very important market for us and this move adds value for our customers in the region with logistics services to our existing container terminal in Callao and inland container terminal in Lurin. The acquisition underlines the confidence we have in Peru and the potential of its economy. As leaders of global trade, we believe the logistic sector in the country has great potential,” said DP World group chairman and ceo, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem.

Gerard van den Heuvel, ceo of DP World Peru, commented that “the acquisition diversifies the revenue of our business through a wider range of logistics services. We already operate the largest container facility in the country in Callao which has rapidly become a leader for trade along the west coast of South America and this will enhance our services even further.”

This transaction not only expands DP World’s footprint in Peru by adding another container terminal to the existing terminal at Callao as well as integrated logistics services including warehousing, distribution and cargo handling to provide tailor made solutions to a range of industrial sectors in the country but also shows DP World’s commitment with doing business in Latin America.
