Located just eight miles from our Tilbury freight centre the new London Gateway adds an annual capacity of 3.5 million TEUs to the UK’s port capacity.
Proximity to London and the South East, together with the availability of port-centric logistics, warehousing and manufacturing capability is a resource of considerable significance, which will doubtless take its place in many supply chains.
We welcome London Gateway and congratulate them on their immense achievement. They sit on the doorstep of Europe’s largest consumer market and offer the possibility of reducing delivery times, haulage costs, fuel consumption and carbon emissions for some shippers.
More than that London Gateway have shaken the established ports, injecting renewed competition, which will lead to enhanced performance across the sector, benefiting users nationally.
