DP World in the UK has won the Port Operator of the Year Award at this year’s Global Freight Awards in London.

The accolade, voted for by port customers, recognised the trade enabling port operator’s UK business units, London Gateway and Southampton, which have enjoyed another year of high productivity and growth.

Linton Nightingale, Deputy Editor of Lloyds List Containers joined comedian Romesh Ranganathan to present the award to DP World’s UK Chief Operating Officer, Nick Loader.

Mr. Loader commented “This has been a real team effort, and recognises the incredible work undertaken by the UK team at London Gateway and Southampton. We pride ourselves on delivering exceptionally high-quality service provision to our customers and striving to exceed their expectations when it comes to ensuring trade can flow with minimal delay through our UK business units.”

The Port Operator Award was a Reader’s Vote Award that could only be voted for by freight forwarders, cargo owners and shipping lines.
