Santo Domingo.- DP World Dominicana conducted an extensive drill on the morning of Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at its Punta Caucedo facilities. This exercise is integral to the company’s security processes, emphasizing its ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and fostering a safer commercial environment.
