Regarding distribution hub at London Gateway

DP World signs three-year deal with major UK road transport operator

DP World in the UK has announced that it has signed an agreement with road transport operator Swain Group for a 0.9 ha distribution facility at its London Gateway freight and logistics hub.

The three year agreement affirms that Swain Group will use the quayside site for the temporary storage of imported construction materials such as stone and ‘next generation’ offsite manufacturing to construct buildings faster, safer and to a higher quality before their onward distribution to the end customer by lorry. The location is 200 yards from London Gateway’s berth 7 and will deliver significant cost and time savings.

Ukhaulier.co.uk quoted Ernst Schulze, Chief Executive of DP World in the UK, as saying: “I am delighted that Swain Group have chosen to strengthen further their longstanding relationship with London Gateway. At DP World we think ahead and create smarter trade solutions and this lease is an outstanding example of the benefits of port-centric logistics.”

“We aim to be a partner in our customers’ business success, providing fast, reliable and flexible links to international supply chains and markets. London Gateway has almost 10 million square feet of land with planning consent at the port and adjacent logistics park and I would urge companies looking to expand to contact us to find out more about how they could benefit from being part of a freeport.”
