P&O Ferrymasters commences operations at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park LG231
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 will enable 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.
LG231 is located at the heart of the Logistics Park and sits alongside DP World London Gateway Port, offering unique multimodal integration. It is Ferrymasters’ first facility in the UK supporting both imports and exports.
DP World’s smart logistics solutions and industry-leading technology allow P&O Ferrymasters to optimise its market-centric distribution centre strategy. Whilst London Gateway’s prime location just 10 miles from the M25 and 28 miles from Central London provides accessibility to one of Europe’s largest consumer markets.
With state-of-the art port and rail terminals adjacent to the Logistics Park, London Gateway enables a supply chain which is faster, greener and more sustainable. The distribution centre itself is BREEAM Excellent, with an EPC 'A' rating and is Planet Mark accredited guaranteeing both sustainable construction and operations in the future.
The primary focus of this facility is the Food & Beverage and FMGC industries but it is suitable for any vertical industry.
Mark Mulder, Director Contract Logistics, P&O Ferrymasters said:
"This additional new warehouse capacity at London Gateway marks an important additional step in our plans to enable trade flows across Europe.
"This new facility will provide the operational flexibility and capacity our customers need to ensure their supply chains are becoming even more efficient and effective with direct access to a central hub linking rail, road, deep sea and short sea. With both Rotterdam and London Gateway recently operational, we believe we are well positioned to provide resilient and agile supply chain solutions which have become more important than ever."
Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director, DP World London Gateway, said:
"We are excited that P&O Ferrymasters has become the first tenant of LG 231. We look forward to working with P&O to deliver innovative and flexible supply chain solutions which add value to our customers’ businesses. LG 231 is the ideal location for P&O Ferrymasters to grow over the long term as DP World London Gateway has the capacity, when complete, to be the largest integrated port and logistics park in Europe. Together we can offer unrivalled service for customers and possess the potential to radically impact the whole supply chain and enable the smarter flow of trade."
