DP World UK has confirmed the launch of the construction works on a new berth at London Gateway.
The new berth will be the fourth one at London Gateway and will be all-electric, according to DP World.
This investment, which will cost approximately £350 million (US$385 million) is expected to increase capacity by a third.
"Over the next 10 years, we have earmarked a further £1 billion (US$1.1 billion) of investment in this country. The construction of the new fourth berth is creating 1,000 jobs and London Gateway’s rapidly growing logistics park will employ 12,000 people when it is completed in five years’ time," commented Ernst Schulze, UK chief executive of DP World.
DP World UK said the new berth will "further enable us to provide unrivalled flexibility and choice to our customers in moving their goods in and out of the United Kingdom."
