DP World announces new appointments and expands Yennora presence

Whether it be a new executive VP or an investment in a critical Sydney side, DP World is expanding in Australia

Logistics company DP World has announced it has appointed new key members to its team while also expanding its supply chain solutions in Australia.

DP World has appointed Nicolaj Noes as new executive vice president for Oceania at DP World Asia Pacific, succeeding Andrew Adam.

Noes will be responsible for overseeing DP World’s business in Oceania and driving its ongoing transformation into an end-to-end supply chain solutions provider.  

 Noes was most recently the managing director for Svitzer, a leading global towage provider, in Australia and brings with him more than three decades of experience in the maritime industry, working across multiple geographies in Asia and Europe.

Prior to his time at Svitzer, Noes spent 30 years with Maersk, holding various leadership positions in Singapore, Australia, China, and Denmark.

“With his depth of experience in maritime industry, his passion for serving customers, his commitment to develop and inspire his team, Nicolaj is the perfect leader to take DP World forward and accelerate the company’s growth opportunities across Oceania,” DP World Asia Pacific CEO and managing director Glen Hilton says.

Noes says: “I am honoured to join the DP World’s talented team in Asia Pacific and lead the Oceania team. I have tremendous regard for the company’s rich history and purpose that is to make the world flow and change what’s possible for everyone.”

“I look forward to leveraging my experience to further strengthen DP World’s position across the Oceania supply chain and deliver exceptional value to our customers, partners, and stakeholders.”

DP World is also expanding its supply chain solutions in Australia through a new investment in Stockland’s Yennora Distribution Centre in Sydney.

By February 2024, DP World will almost double warehousing capacity at Yennora, by adding three new warehouses with a combined area of nearly 45,000 sqm, to create a major contract logistics hub. These new warehouses – along with an existing 60,000 sqm facility at the site – will be operated in partnership with AWH, Australia’s biggest warehousing provider. 

 The expanded facility will provide customers with a full end-to-end supply chain service, connecting importers and exporters to a range of logistics services via rail and road. Customers will also benefit from the seamless connectivity to DP World sites at Port Botany and the Sydney Port Precinct, gaining access to a suite of services including warehousing, transportation and freight forwarding. 

 The Yennora Distribution Centre is one of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest distribution centres, and among six intermodal terminals servicing the greater Sydney area.

The centre operates as an intermodal terminal with rail sidings connected to Main Southern Rail Line providing direct connectivity to Port Botany and DP World’s Sydney Terminal and container park facility for imports and exporters within the zone.

DP World will also play a critical role in co-designing a new masterplan for the Yennora Distribution Centre with owner Stockland, one of Australia’s largest diversified property groups.
