This development provides a rare opportunity for fast occupation of a high-spec cross-dock distribution warehouse facility, in a prime South East location, adjacent to the rapidly expanding, state-of-the-art, deep-sea port of London Gateway.

Tenants located at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park benefit from the hub’s location, just 10 miles from the M25 and 25 miles from Central London. A large labour pool of over three million people live within a 45 minute drive and a specialist in-house team are able to assist and advise on creating additional supply chain value. In addition, full-service estates management is provided by Knight Frank.

Logistics Park Development Director Oliver Treneman, said: “We’re delighted to announce the commencement of work on further warehousing space at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park, which will form an extension to the existing DP World London Gateway Logistics Centre.

“This is a unique opportunity for a company to locate part of its operations at one of the UK’s most integrated logistics hubs. DP World London Gateway Port is witnessing exponential growth, with a number of new deep-sea shipping services to new markets, so now is a great time to capitalise on available space at the Logistics Park and engage with us to create even more value in the supply chain.”
