DP World expands warehousing at London Gateway

By the end of December, DP World will complete the construction of a 13,563m2  green warehouse facility before the end of 2021 at the London Gateway Logistics Park to meet demand for premium warehouse space in the SE of the UK.

The LG146 facility has been commissioned to meet the needs of businesses that are looking for warehousing close to the nearby deep water seaport as well as the road and rail connections to central London. E-retailers are increasingly expanding their operations at the site to meet demand for their goods according to DP World.

Oliver Treneman, park development director at DP World in the UK, commented, “The new facility will be ready for occupancy in the last quarter of the year and will be one of the most sustainable warehouses yet built, with a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ classification, EPC rating A and Planet Mark accredited. We are using the latest sustainable technologies to drive down carbon emissions and the use of raw materials to the minimum possible levels.

“We aim to provide supply chain integration and our park is the largest facility of its kind in Europe. From this location, our customers can reduce transport costs, gain access to international supply chains and markets, and benefit directly from port-centric logistics. In conjunction with the nearby Port of Tilbury, London Gateway is also bidding for Freeports status, which would further enhance the attractiveness of this location for companies looking to expand.”
