DP World London Gateway Opens Logistics Hub

The first distribution center at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park was officially opened on July 20th.

The first phase of this high tech unit, which comprises 16,800m² (180,000 sq ft) of distribution and logistics space and 2,400m² (25,000 sq ft) of office space, has been finished to BREEAM “very good” standard.

“DP World London Gateway is an excellent example of the benefits inward investment brings to UK infrastructure and the economy. Any project that gives the country an edge, whether it be generating supply chain efficiency or leading the way in environmental sustainability, should be commended”, said Robert Goodwill MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport, who attended the opening ceremony.

Based on market demand, DP World is now planning to increase the size of the centre to 36,000m² (380,000 sq ft).

The DP World London Gateway Logistics Park is located adjacent to the UK’s newest deep-sea terminal on the door-step of the largest consumer market in Western Europe.

HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World, said: “DP World London Gateway is transforming UK supply chains and this new logistics hub has been constructed to the highest quality and environmental standards. It is the perfect example of how retailers and cargo owners can achieve cost savings by positioning themselves strategically, here, in the right location for trade.”

John Eynon, Managing Director, Import Services Limited, said: “In just two months of operations at the new London Gateway Logistics Centre, the strong demand for our services means we are already approaching capacity of phase one and now seeking to accelerate development of additional warehousing space at London Gateway.”
