DP World, Einride enhance freight mobility at Jebel Ali Port

Freight mobility company, Einride, has announced a partnership with DP World to electrify inter-terminal container flows at Jebel Ali Port.

This initiative represents the largest deployment of electric, autonomous freight mobility in the Middle East.

Beginning at the end of 2024, the partnership will reportedly scale to manage around 1,600 container movements daily. This will be achieved through a fleet of 100 connected electric trucks, operated via Einride Saga, a digital system designed to analyse, optimise, and maximise the efficiency of electric and autonomous freight operations.

An autonomous pilot is expected to launch in 2025.

Once fully operational, the initiative is projected to save up to 14,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) and 158 tonnes of nitrogen oxides (NOx) annually.
