DP World has welcomed five new customers at its latest facility at London Gateway in the first 100 days of operation.
The multi-user warehouse is attracting attention from companies in the FMCG, manufacturing, and industrial sectors according to DP World.
The announcement adds to the allure of London Gateway’s location – only 28 miles from the city – when combined with DP World’s extensive contract logistics service.
Jonathan Himsworth, Vice President Sales at DP World Logistics, said: “We are delighted that so many international businesses have already taken advantage of our latest facility at London Gateway.
“We offer faster market access on account of our unrivalled location and low carbon solutions, which help our customers to reduce the amount of CO2 in their supply chains.
“Our bonded facility also benefits from Authorized Economic Operator certification, which means much faster access to cargo after it is discharged from a vessel.
“I would urge other companies interested in the convenience and flexibility of our services, which includes customs clearance and express quay collection, to get in touch to find out more.”
