Maritime Transport has opened the first transport depot at DP World London Gateway.
Situated on London’s doorstep and boasting six deep-water berths, DP World London Gateway’s capability to deal with the world's largest container vessels means it will undoubtedly become a major player in the UK container industry. As such, Maritime’s decision to open up there was an easy one to make.
“The decision to open at DP World London Gateway complements our network growth plans,” said Simon Smart, managing director – container transport. “The developments at London Gateway continue to impress and have added another UK port option for our customers. Naturally, as a multi-port operator, we wanted to have a substantial presence at the dock which we have achieved with this centre, the first of its kind.”
Maritime’s depot puts it in a prime position to capitalise on the future growth of the port with its three-acre site able to house 60 trucks and trailers.
“We believe that the port will quickly become established as a key gateway for our customers with its fantastic location close to the City of London and surrounding areas,” Said Tom Williams, general manager – commercial. “With our operations teams and vehicles based on-site, we are the first logistics operator to offer a true solution from London Gateway.”
