DP World celebrated a milestone achievement in its history when its Dubai ports handled the 100 millionth container to pass through UAE Region terminals in ten years on February 4th, 2013.

DP World Chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said, “The feat was made possible by the high level of support the company has received from Dubai’s leadership, loyal customers, stakeholders and committed employees.”

The 100 million TEU record was achieved between January 2003 and January 2013 and covers all container boxes handled in both Mina Rashid and Jebel Ali Port. DP World, UAE Region’s annual container throughput increased more than 150 per cent over the decade, from around five million TEU in 2003 to 13.3 million TEU in 2012.

In all, the two container ports have handled 135 million TEU since the opening of Jebel Ali Port in 1979, around 75 per cent of it since 2003.

In a recognition of the crucial roles they have played in DP World’s success story, members of the DP World Alumni Network were invited as special guests to celebrations at Jebel Ali Port where the Chairman unveiled a container box painted in company colours, in the presence of senior officials, including Vice Chairman Jamal Majid Bin Thaniah, Group Chief Executive Officer Mohammed Sharaf, and Senior Vice President and Managing Director of DP World, UAE Region Mohammed Al Muallem – all of whom have played pivotal leadership roles in the company’s emergence as the third largest global marine terminal operator.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World, said: “DP World owes its success to the vision and support of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. Our flagship facility Jebel Ali is counted among the crown jewels of Dubai’s economy. We remain committed to supporting Dubai’s unparalleled position as the region’s commercial hub.

CSS Group was also represented during this landmark moment by Ken Dinnadge VP Business Development, as part of the DP World Alumni invited to this exclusive event. During his tenure at DP World Ken was part of the first commercial team that set DP World on its way to achieving its first million TEUs. Ken Dinnadge said, “The growth of DP World serves as a lesson for ports worldwide, as its success is owed to the vision of the country’s leaders and the Chairman of DP World. On behalf of CSS Group, I would like to congratulate DP World on achieving this tremendous milestone and wish them further success and growth in the future.”

The expansion work currently underway at Jebel Ali includes adding 1 million TEU in new capacity to Container Terminal 2 (T2) during the first half of this year and the development of a 4 million TEU capacity mega Container Terminal 3 (T3) by 2014. When the expansion work is complete, Jebel Ali Port will be able to handle ten of the next generation 18,000 TEU mega vessels at the same time – the only port in the region able to do so.

For well over a year now, DP World, UAE Region has been handling volumes of more than 1 million TEU every month. In 2012 DP World, UAE region handled 13.3 million TEU.

Running For A Reason -Mumbai Marathon 2013

CSS India Director Jairam KR Completes The Half Marathon

It has indeed been rightly said that “A Marathon Is More than Just a Race” and the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon too echoes this statement. The race is not just about crossing the finish line and winning thousands of dollars as prize money. It is in fact an event that is driven by passion and purity of purpose. The Mumbai Marathon is an annual international road running competition over the marathon distance that is held in Mumbai, India, each January.

15th February, 2004 is an important date in India’s distance running calendar. It marks the day when Standard Chartered Mumbai International Marathon made its debut, thereby catapulting India onto the world league of distance running events.

Celebrating a decade of distance running, the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2013 is among the elite class of full marathons to have been awarded the Gold Label Status by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). It is a great celebration of spirit and fitness that underlines and showcases the passion zeal of the citizens of a city, and nowhere is it more visible than in the spirit of giving that accompanies all great city marathons. Today every major city in India has a city marathon but Mumbai stands above other cities in the largeness in its heart and the caring power of its society. Corporate entities and citizens compete amongst themselves by participating in this event for the upliftment of the under privileged.

As a part of the Corporate Social Responsibility and show of solidarity towards a great cause CSS India Director Jairam KR had participated in SCMM and successfully finished the Half Marathon (21.097 KM) in 2 hours and 36 minutes. It was a proud moment for CSS Group as they got real representation in this event.

For the SCMM 2013 the international event ambassador was Haile Gebrselassie, winner of two Olympic Gold Medals, four World Championship Gold medals, four World Indoor Championship Gold medals and has 27 World records to his credit. . The event ambassador was Bollywood actor John Abraham who has been the face of many brands and several causes. But few are as close to his heart as the Mumbai Marathon.

Marathons around the world have been known for their strong bonding with charitable causes. Key to the success of this partnership that seeks to raise funds for deserving causes is strong participation from the corporate sector. The Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon has earned the distinction of being one of the most elite platforms in India for such causes. The SCMM is India’s single largest fundraiser and the runners rose more than Rs 17 Crore for charity, taking the total amount to Rs 80 crore since the marathon started way back in 2004.The SCMM has earned the distinction of being the most successful fund raising platform for charities in India and Celebrated a decade in distance running events. The Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2013 got a record with 222 NGOs participation and around 40,000 people – from businessmen to actors, doctors to dabbawallas, VIPs to the plain enthusiast – turned out for the 10th Mumbai marathon, proving once again that it is one of the most glamorous and widely participated sporting events in the country.
