DP World and Einride to pilot autonomous electric trucks at Dubai container port

Commercial EV builder Einride is working with DP World, a provider of supply chain solutions headquartered in Dubai, to electrify inter-terminal container flows at Jebel Ali Port, which is said to be the 10th busiest port in the world.

Starting at the end of 2024, DP World plans to deploy a fleet of 100 electric trucks, managed through Einride’s Saga operating system, which is designed to maximize the efficiency of electric and autonomous road freight operations. An autonomous pilot is slated to begin in 2025.

“Our collaboration [will merge] 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.”

“DP World is committed to making trade smarter, faster and more sustainable,” said Abdulla Bin Damithan, CEO and Managing Director of DP World. “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.”
