Members of the U.S. House of Representatives visited DP World’s facilities to learn about the organization’s logistics ecosystem and the investments it is making to adapt to nearshoring standards in the country and turn it into the main logistics HUB in the Americas region.
The executives of the logistics solutions provider DP World welcomed Albio Sires, Chairman of the Chamber’s Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, Mark Green, from Tennessee, and Adriano Espaillat from New York.
They were accompanied by Robert Thomas, Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo, as well as other members of this diplomatic mission in the country.
During the tour, Morten Johansen, CEO of DP World, shared with the congressmen the company’s vision to increase the competitiveness and connectivity of the nation, as well as the growth plan that DP World is executing.
