The port operator said revenue for the first half of the year reached $3.46 billion and profits reached $753 million. The company's earnings before interest, tax and other fees grew nearly 22% at $1.6 billion.
The company appears to be on course to surpass last year's profits of $1.29 billion.
DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said Thursday despite global trade disputes and regional geopolitics causing uncertainty to the container market, the company's half-year performance leaves it "well placed to deliver full-year results slightly ahead of market expectations."
