DP World, Einride Partner for Largest Deployment of Electric, Autonomous Freight Mobility in Middle East

by Madaline Dunn

DP World and Einride, a freight mobility company, have partnered to electrify inter-terminal container flows at Jebel Ali Port. This, it was shared, will be the largest deployment of electric, autonomous freight mobility in the Middle East, operating 24/7.

The partnership will commence at the end of 2024 and scale up to support approximately 1,600 container movements daily. This will be realised through a fleet of 100 connected electric trucks, managed through Einride Saga, Einride’s digital operating system.

The system is designed to analyse, optimise and maximise the efficiency of electric and autonomous road freight operations. An autonomous pilot is projected for deployment in 2025.

The initiative will save up to 14,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) annually and 158 tonnes of nitrogen oxides (NOx) annually once at full operational capacity.

Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO and Managing Director of DP World GCC, commented: “We have already made significant progress in electrifying and automating our terminals at Jebel Ali Port, and by leveraging Einride’s cutting-edge technology, we can take that to the next level. Our partnership will drive greater operational efficiencies, further decarbonise terminal operations, and pioneer greener practices for the logistics sector.”

“Einride and DP World are driving a paradigm shift in the landscape of freight mobility in the Middle East. Our collaboration underscores a shared dedication to sustainability and innovation, merging Einride’s expertise in electrification and autonomous technology with DP World’s global logistics leadership,” said Robert Falck, CEO and Founder of Einride. 

“By reshaping container transportation in Jebel Ali Port, we aim to set a new standard for sustainable transport practices, significantly curbing CO2 emissions.”

Einride’s ecosystem, comprising electric and autonomous vehicles, charging infrastructure, and transformative technology, will be deployed at scale throughout the Falcon Rise grid.
