DP World has signed an agreement with OASIS Group to set up a new distribution hub at London Gateway.
The agreement will see OASIS Group take on a long-term lease for a 108,973 square-foot warehouse which it will use to provide information management services to its clients across the UK and Europe.
Construction for this new distribution hub will begin in spring 2022 and is scheduled to be completed by October 2022.
“We are delighted to welcome OASIS Group to our port-centric logistics park at London Gateway which is home to supply chain solutions, high-quality warehousing and light manufacturing. It also has outstanding road links and access to an adjacent rail terminal,” said Ernst Schulze, UK Chief Executive of DP World.
“DP World in the UK is at the heart of Britain’s trading future, providing the right trading infrastructure, smart logistical solutions and the benefits of freeport status to our customers. We believe in the UK market and have the ambition and the resources to boost growth, support businesses, create jobs and improve living standards.”
Conan Wade, Group Property and Facilities Director at OASIS Group, added “We are delighted to take this new facility at DP World’s London Gateway Logistics Park. This is an excellent opportunity to expand our information management business, whilst supporting our ambitious environmental goals.
“We are attracted by the 21m clear internal height – which allows for greater operational efficiencies and deployment of optimised racking systems; whilst the rainwater harvesting system, extensive solar panels and bespoke electric vehicle charging all support our ESG strategy.”
DP World has also recently launched its new financing solution and fintech platform CARGOES Finance. Announced in October 2021, the platform provides exporters, importers, and logistics companies with access to financing solutions, supporting them in global expansion. The platform is now available to shippers and small-to-medium sized businesses.
