OASIS Group has become the second business to move to DP World’s port-centric logistics park at London Gateway since it became a freeport.
The information management services provider this month took possession of a sustainable 108,973 square feet warehouse at the logistics hub.
The financial incentives that come with its location at the Thames Freeport include no stamp duty on commercial leases and land transactions, savings on employer national insurance contributions, a five-year holiday on business rates, and a regime of enhanced capital allowances.
With a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ classification, the OASIS Group facility delivered a 30 per cent carbon reduction during construction and a 40 per cent reduction in operational carbon emissions.
Over the last 10 years, DP World has invested £2 billion ($2.48 billion) in the UK.
Over the next 10 years the logistics provider has earmarked a further £1 billion ($1.24 billion) of investment, with a £350 million ($435 million) new fourth berth at London Gateway scheduled to open in summer 2024.
