Aart Hille Ris Lambers, DP World Southampton

Company | DP World Southampton
Job Position | Head of Commercial


Aart Hille Ris Lambers has over 25 years’ experience in Shipping and Ports. He joined the team at DP World Southampton in 2009, at a time when the UK Port Industry suddenly changed from a situation of capacity shortage to structural overcapacity. This required a structural change in the company. Today DP World Southampton is recognised as the most productive UK container terminal with excellent customer service.

Aart previously headed up APM Terminals regional project development team in Latin America and worked for companies like Nedlloyd Lines and Van Ommeren Bulk Shipping. Having worked in all aspects of a container line, including the planning of the network, has given him an in-depth understanding of the customers of a container terminal.

Aart graduated as Master of Science in Maritime Business Studies at the Delft University of Technology with a leadership program from Columbia University.
