DP World has opened a new technology center in Gurgaon, India, its third this year as it invests in developing next-gen global trade innovative.
More than 240 people will be based at the new office, about 30-km southwest of India’s capital New Delhi. It will house development teams for DP World’s latest trade and logistics solutions, aiming to "revolutionize how trade flows through every link of the global supply chain."
The opening follows the launch of new technology centers in Hyderabad and Bangalore earlier this year.
According to DP World, India's digital economy is set to reach $1 trillion by 2025, and its pool of technology professionals is growing rapidly. DP World aims to tap into this resource, attracting the brightest minds in India by allowing them to co-create solutions from the ground up and owning the software development process from the beginning to the end.
At the beginning of 2021, DP World had only 50 employees in the country. This number has already grown to more than 450 with the opening of its three offices in 2022. As this exponential growth continues, employee headcount is expected to reach as many as 700 by the middle of next year.
