About us

On the doorstep of London, with unrivalled deep-water access, road and rail links to the whole of the UK, London Gateway is a newly built, state-of-the-art, highly automated deep-sea container port.

London Gateway is uniquely combined with Europe’s largest logistics park, offering a portcentric solution that provides the ideal location, facilities, connectivity, speed, efficiency and reliability that today’s shippers need for their supply chains.

In short, London Gateway provides the most efficient link between deep-sea shipping and the largest consumer markets in the UK. 

The six new deep-water berths at London Gateway will add 3.5 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units) to the nation’s port capacity to meet the infrastructure demand resulting from the growth in ship size. London Gateway has been modelled on DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali facility in Dubai, which has been voted ‘Best Seaport in the Middle East’ for 19 consecutive years.
