The Department has received contact from DP World on the following maritime and port related issues:

From February 2023, DP World met Department officials on the progress of design and implementation of their Modal Shift incentivisation scheme at DP World’s Port of Southampton facility, which Rail officials acknowledged.

In November 2023, DP World wrote to seek an opportunity to discuss DP World’s continued investment in the UK, and reset the relationship with the Government after a period of non engagement with the Department following the P&O Ferries sackings.

More recently, last week the Department was notified of P&O Ferries’ intent to sign the Seafarers’ Charter.
