DHL to construct new warehouse in London Gateway

DP World London Gateway and DHL Supply Chain have launched the construction of a new 48,000m2 warehouse at Plot 3040 on London Gateway's Logistics Park.

Work to prepare the plot is underway, according to the announcement, with the main facility build due to commence in early 2021.

On completion of the new warehouse project, DHL will lease the facility from DP World London Gateway.

The most striking feature of this new letting is DHL’s significant investment in automation, according to Oliver Treneman, park development director at DP World London Gateway, who said, "DHL will benefit from the right location, the right infrastructure and the right technology to serve Greater London and the South East over the long term."

The new 42 high bay warehouse will feature 36m of clear internal eaves height and boast an internal volume equivalent to 645 Olympic swimming pools. The facility will be completed to a BREEAM Outstanding rating and will be fully automated, ready for operation in early 2023.

Full planning permission for the new warehouse was received in just 24 days through London Gateway’s unique Local Development Order. The facility is expected to be the largest single unit at London Gateway’s Logistics Park.

"This latest letting brings the total number of occupiers on the Logistics Park to ten, with DHL joining UPS, Dixons Carphone, MADE.COM, Lidl, Ceva Logistics, P&O Ferrymasters, Halo Handling (SH Pratt), Ziegler UK and Compagnie Fruitiere," commented Jeremy Cracknell, senior property development manager at DP World London Gateway.
