The Minister was particularly keen to get an understanding of the sustainability initiatives employed at the terminal including the environmentally friendly infrastructure and equipment employed at London Gateway.

At the London Gateway Logistics Park, the Minister was also shown warehousing that has achieved BREEAM accreditation and meets the world-leading sustainability standards for buildings and infrastructure.
After a tour of the port and logistics park, which is the largest and most integrated trading hub in the UK, the Minister was introduced to a number of engineering apprentices for an insight into their training experience at the port and to see the operations taking place at London Gateway.
Ernst Schulze, UK CEO, DP World, said:
“We were delighted to welcome the Maritime Minister. It was a great opportunity to show her the operations here, DP World London Gateway sits at the heart of the largest consumer market in Europe with robust network connections into the hinterland. DP World is the only operator in the country to have two deep-sea terminals generating significant national economic benefit. We were able to show the Minister the scale of investment we are making here in the UK.”
Nusrat Ghani MP Maritime Minister said:
“Ports are at the heart of the UK’s economy and I was delighted to visit London Gateway last week to witness one of the UK’s most cutting-edge ports in action, along with the resilience funding which was provided by this Government.
“From harnessing talent, to bolstering trade and technology capabilities, we are committed to supporting our world-class ports to continue to thrive.”
