New DP World film launched in the UK tells story of end-to-end logistics ambition
DP World today releases a new film telling the story of how it is extending its reach into the UK supply chain.
The 95-second film which was made by London and Berlin-based production company Cat and Weasel working with leading European director Joshan Esfandiari Martin, explains how the logistics solutions which DP World provides enable customers to move goods smoothly and efficiently in and out of the UK at the same time as bringing prosperity to people’s lives.
DP World operates the UK’s most advanced logistics hubs: two deep water ports at Southampton and London Gateway with access to freight rail terminals, and a rapidly expanding logistics park on the doorstep of the capital. It makes a major contribution to the UK economy, handling over £43 billion of goods a year.
Ernst Schulze, UK Chief Executive of DP World, said: “This film demonstrates our commitment to consolidating our place at the heart of Britain’s trading future, providing the right infrastructure, smart logistics solutions, and the benefits of Freeport status to our customers. Demand at our port-centric logistics park at London Gateway remains robust, utilisation of the new train linking our two UK terminals continues to grow, and we will extend our reach further into the supply chain in the coming months and years.”
John Trenchard, Supply Chain Director at DP World, added: “Businesses are looking for new and better solutions that make their logistics more efficient, more agile and more reliable, all whilst seeking specialised local-to-global expertise that can help move goods where others cannot. Customers have a growing need for partners who can provide more sustainable, cost-effective solutions to simplify complex logistics challenges. We believe in the UK market and have the ambition and the resources to boost growth, support businesses, create jobs and improve living standards.”
DP World saw a 5% rise in the volume of trade handled by its two hubs in the UK last year. London Gateway alone reported a 14% rise in volumes to 2,053,000 TEU – the first time it has ever exceeded two million units in a year, consolidating its position as Britain’s second biggest container terminal. Together with Southampton, the two terminals handled a record 3,850,000 TEU compared with 3,675,000 in 2021.
Over the last 10 years DP World has invested £2 billion in the UK, supporting thousands of jobs. Over the next 10 years the logistics provider has earmarked a further £1 billion of investment, with a £350m new fourth berth at London Gateway now under construction.
