P&O Ferrymasters, one of the leading European providers of tailor-made transportation and logistics services, took occupation of a 231,000 sq ft distribution centre space on practical completion of the building on 27 July 2020.
The company was able to set up business immediately to manage and operate the new distribution centre, allowing it to meet increased market demand for warehouse and cross-dock activities at London Gateway.
Taking a 5-year lease at the brand new LG231 facility is enabling P&O to further build its port/market-centric distribution centre strategy. It follows the opening of a new Rotterdam distribution centre in 2019 and complements the P&O Group developments in Tilbury – activities which are more continental cargo focused.
The distribution centre has:
- Internal height of 12.5 metres
- 28 dock-levellers and 4 level access loading doors
- Racking & Bulk available
- Wet bond
- Full Warehouse Management System
- B2C & B2B
- Picking from full pallet down to piece picking and cross dock container unloading offered
