Definitive Guide to London Gateway
This is your definitive guide to the UK’s most integrated logistics hub; a sustainable, strategically located, trade enabling centre of excellence on the River Thames.
The deep sea port and logistics park is supported by its own international rail terminal and is situated just10 miles from the M25 and 28 miles from London, making it an accessible hub for import and export.
The site also offers convenient, modern warehousing space, with a logistics park equivalent in size to 400 football pitches– the biggest of its kind in Europe. Facilities offer absolute flexibility, from building size and layout to length of lease.
The port is equipped with top-of-the-range equipment, including some of the largest quay cranes in the world, as well as automation in many areas, such as the truck handling process and stacking yard.
