As part of its vision to become a regional leader in smart trade, DP World, UAE Region is exploring the power of quantum computing in the logistics and trade sector through collaboration with D-Wave, and other pioneers in the quantum computing sphere. The company has already conducted intensive training sessions on quantum computing, which have included actual operational exercises and the use of quantum computing coding. DP World, UAE says it has identified logistics, fleet and traffic management elements, where the power of quantum computing will be applied to “revolutionise operations across the supply chain.”
Quantum computers provide exponential processing power to solve complex problems and can deliver parallel performance in certain applications better than classic computers. Quantum computing is expected to push the boundaries of digital transformation within DP World, UAE Region.
Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region said: “Quantum computing capabilities complement our need to reach ultimate smart trade and achieve a seamless logistics infrastructure, where everything is connected, devices work in harmony and all our operations components communicate with each other intelligently. This will enable us to achieve the quantum leap from traditional digital ways of functioning to wise and intelligent transformation.”
D-Wave is the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, software, and services. DP World, UAE Region’s committed efforts in exploring quantum computing technology will strengthen its position as a global trade enabler, providing benefits to the supply chain, logistics and trade and the end consumer.
