Overview of London Gateway
London Gateway will be the UK’s first 21st Century major deep-sea container port and Europe’s largest logistics park.
Situated on the north bank of the River Thames, London Gateway provides unrivalled deep-sea shipping access for the world’s leading businesses to the largest consumer markets in the UK.
The port's location, with its superior operational systems and service, ensure ships load and unload as fast as possible, making London Gateway a world class asset for the UK.
The port will be the most efficient in the country, adding an additional 3.5million TEU (standard twenty foot equivalent cargo units (containers) to the nation’s port capacity. This will help meet recognised demand for extra capacity in the UK.
In addition to a major deep sea port, London Gateway will integrate with Europe’s largest logistics park and will offer individual units up to and in excess of one million square feet.
In doing so, London Gateway will offer global brands the opportunity to move away from conventional distribution methods. The location of the port will ensure trade does not have to travel far, which means less road miles, costs and vehicle emissions. This concept of integration is known as PortCentric logistics.
