MAJOR NEW WAREHOUSE AT LONDON GATEWAY’S LOGISTICS PARK FAST-TRACKED FOR COMPLETION IN RESPONSE TO SURGING DEMAND
DP WORLD in the UK today announces that London Gateway’s Logistics Park will fast-track the delivery of a speculative 146,000 sq ft green warehouse facility before the end of 2021 to meet the rapidly growing demand for premium warehousing space in the South East of England. This follows the letting upon completion of LG231, a 230,000 sq ft warehouse facility, to P&O Ferrymasters last year.
DP World, the leading global provider of smart logistics, has commissioned the new LG146 facility to create the space needed by businesses who want to take advantage of the logistics park being adjacent to London Gateway’s deep-water port and outstanding road and rail connections to the capital, Europe’s largest consumer market. Increasingly, retailers are expanding their operations at London Gateway to satisfy surging demand for online goods.
Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director at DP World in the UK, said: “The new facility will be ready for occupancy in the last quarter of the year and will be one of the most sustainable warehouses yet built, with a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ classification, EPC Rating A and Planet Mark Accredited. We are using the latest sustainable technologies to drive down both the use of raw materials and carbon emissions to the minimum possible levels.”
“We aim to provide supply chain integration and our park is the largest facility of its kind in Europe. From this location, our customers can reduce transport costs, gain access to international supply chains and markets, and benefit directly from port-centric logistics. In conjunction with the nearby Port of Tilbury, London Gateway is also bidding for Freeports status which would further enhance the attractiveness of this location for companies looking to expand.”
London Gateway has almost 10 million sq ft of land with planning consent. Tapping into the rapidly expanding demand for warehousing to support e-commerce, DP World can work with customers on their building requirements of up to 1.2 million sq ft and deliver bespoke solutions via a unique 28 day planning agreement with the local council.
The new facility will be completed and ready for occupation in December.
