Situated on the doorstep of Europe’s largest consumer market, the new 150,000 sq ft distribution hub will provide Transmec UK - a leading transport and logistics company - with access to supply chain solutions, high quality warehousing and unparalleled road and rail links.
Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director at DP World in the UK, said: “Over the past ten years, DP World has invested £2bn in the UK to create the right trading infrastructure and smart logistics solutions, providing customers with fast, reliable and flexible links to international supply chains and markets. The Logistics Park’s proximity to both a deep-water port and London cuts transport costs between port and distribution centre, and between distribution centre and markets, providing businesses like Transmec UK optimal control over their supply chains.”
Imran Mohammed, manager of Transmec UK’s London branch, said: “London Gateway is a fantastic site that will provide Transmec with the warehousing capacity and infrastructure it needs to meet growing demand from customers across the UK and EU. We take pride in delivering bespoke solutions for international supply chains and serve a wide range of sectors, including fashion, automotive and leisure. Our move will enable us to take things to an even higher level.”
Ready for occupation in 2023, Transmec’s new facility will be constructed to meet BREEAM ‘outstanding’ classification – the world’s leading sustainability standard for building construction, ensuring a 30 per cent carbon reduction during construction and a 40 percent reduction in operational carbon emissions.
