The port operator will introduce DP World Cargospeed, the transportation system powered by hyperloop technology at the pavilion, as well as Box Bay, an automated high-rise stacking system.
Augmented and virtual reality interactions to showcase the real-time movement of cargo to Expo 2020 Dubai visitors will also feature at the pavilion.
Commenting on pavilion, group chairman and chief executive officer of DP World, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “The pavilion will become a permanent feature of Expo 2020 Dubai’s legacy at District 2020, reinforcing the emirate’s reputation as a knowledge-based economy.
"It will benefit future generations for years to come, long after the event has ended by introducing young minds to career opportunities in logistics and trade coupled with insights into their vital role in keeping the world moving.”
