DHL Supply Chain breaks ground at DP World London Gateway

DHL Supply Chain has begun to build a new, 482,000 square foot warehouse at DP World London Gateway. Ground preparation has begun with actual construction set for early 2021.

The build is a 42 metre tall warehouse that will have 36 metres of clear internal eaves and will have an internal volume height the equivalent of 645 Olympic sized swimming pools. It should be ready for operations in early 2023 and will meet the BREEAM Outstanding rating for sustainability.

Oliver Treneman, Park development director at DP World London Gateway, commented, “We are delighted to welcome DHL Supply Chain as our latest customer and the largest warehouse development on the Park to date. The most striking feature of this new letting is DHL’s significant investment in automation that underpins its commitment to this strategic location.

“DHL will benefit from the right location, the right infrastructure and the right technology to serve Greater London and the Southeast over the long term.”
