DP World London Gateway has reported that its receiving strong interest from hauliers for the remaining 5.5 acres of facilities available for lease at the deep-sea port and logistics park.
Wincanton, one of Britain’s largest logistics companies, has announced its plans to establish a haulage base at the site by early 2018, which will provide truck parking alongside office facilities housing an on-site operations team.
DP World London Gateway plans to serve the haulage community using the port by delivering a common-user truck yard of approximately five acres located at the heart of the UK’s largest consumer market.
The announcement comes just over a week after SH Pratt Group announced its new venture Halo in a bespoke temperature-controlled facility on the logistics park.
Pentalver Transport has also started to expand the container yard located at Berth Seven of the logistics hub (pictured below) so it can add 40% additional capacity to its operations.
Chris Fenton, MD Industrial & Transport, Wincanton said: “We have been moving containers in and out of DP World London Gateway Port since it opened three-and-a-half years ago.
“With Asia-Europe services now calling at the port and volumes continually increasing, now is the right time for us to have a base within the port so that we can provide an even better service to our customers.”
