DP World handled 17.7 million teu (twenty-foot equivalent units) across its global portfolio of container terminals in Q3 19, with gross container volumes growing 1.1% year on year on a like-for-like basis. It said Jebel Ali (UAE) handled 3.6 million teu in Q3, down 1.% year on year, as volumes stabilised following a shift of low-margin cargo. Growth in Asia and India remains robust with strong growth in ATI (Philippines), Qingdao (China). Growth in India has been driven by Cochin, Mundra and NSIGT (Mumbai). Decline in reported volumes in Asia Pacific & Indian Subcontinent is due to discontinued operations in Surabaya (Indonesia) and Tianjin (China).
