Official opening of the Dp World London Gateway Logistics Centre
Mr Goodwill was joined by DP World Chairman, His Excellency Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, to
formalise the opening of the centre during a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The first phase of this high tech unit, which comprises 16,800m² (180,000 sq ft) of distribution and logistics space and 2,400m² (25,000 sq ft) of office space, has been finished to BREEAM “very good” standard, the world's foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings.
Based on market demand, DP World is now planning to increase the size of the centre to 36,000m².
In partnership with DP World, the centre is being operated by Import Services Limited, a leading UK logistics services provider, offering a variety of activities on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Robert Goodwill MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport, said: “I am delighted to have been able to open the London Gateway Logistics Centre, which is the next step in this ground-breaking development on the north-bank of the River Thames which is breath-taking in its size, scale and attention to detail.
“DP World London Gateway is an excellent example of the benefits inward investment brings to UK infrastructure and the economy.
“Any project that gives the country an edge, whether it be generating supply chain efficiency or leading the way in environmental sustainability, should be commended.”
HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World, said: “Our new DP World London Gateway Logistics Centre is the next landmark in this unique development for the UK and I am delighted to be here today with the Minister for Transport.
