DP World UK to open new warehouse in London Gateway

DP World has announced that it will expedite the delivery of a green warehouse of 11,055.4 m2 at London Gateway’s port-centric logistics park to meet the unprecedented demand for space at the freeport site.

The global port operator plans to complete its second speculative warehouse facility in less than a year at London Gateway, which is expected to be ready for operations at the end of the third quarter of the year.

The new facility will be one of the most sustainable warehouses built so far, with a BREEAM 'Outstanding' classification, delivering a 30% carbon reduction during construction and a 40% reduction in operational carbon emissions, according to DP World.

"We have seen the best year for new business in a decade as demand for premium warehousing space in the South East of England has reached unprecedented levels," said Oliver Treneman, park development director at DP World in the United Kingdom.

"We are very confident that LG119 (Plot 4040), the facility we are announcing, will be of interest to some of the dozens of retail, manufacturing and logistics businesses looking to expand or establish new operations who have contacted us to take advantage of the unique opportunities on offer since our freeport status was announced," added Treneman.

The fast-tracked delivery of a second speculative warehouse follows the earlier announcement in November that a 10,123.9 m2 unit at the site had been leased to Oasis Group, which provides information management and document storage services.
