A message from the CEO:

"Without doubt, the evolution of the project to date has been phenomenal, ensuring a seamless flow of goods to consumers and distribution centres. 

"But just as importantly, we now have demonstrable data points that prove this port is faster, safer, more reliable and considerably more resilient in poor weather. It represents total market advantage. We will continue working with our customers and users of the port and park, providing real-world solutions not just tired-old rhetoric. 

"For example, in the UK, DP World’s solution to the challenge of container weighing is globally market leading. We’ll provide greater visibility to users with continued innovation, our 'Where’s My Container' application being a prime example. And of course we will continue to provide the very best in customer service. Which is at the heart of everything we do. 

"We’re here to accelerate trade and help UK businesses to grow. The ability of our team and facility to do this is unquestionable." 

Ernst Schulze, Managing Director of DP World UK and CEO of London Gateway

Most advanced means most resilient...

Unbeatable weather record:

DP World London Gateway Port has a superior weather resilience record when compared with other deep-water ports.

Come wind, rain or shine, we're open 98% of the time - landside and shipside. Don't let weather disrupt your product flow.

Automated truck handling: faster turnarounds, more weather resilient

Our automated stacking cranes provide market-leading turnaround times for maximum efficiency

And this technology is safer and more secure. Wind doesn't mean we close to trucks. Collect or drop off containers even when it's blowing a gale.

We have big berths - and they can all handle the biggest vessels

We have three highly productive deep-water berths all able to handle the largest container vessels - and we'll still be able to take the vessels when they get even bigger.

Routes to resilience: multiple A-roads ensure you have options

Inbound or outbound to DP World London Gateway, there's several dual-carriageway route options from the region's major motorways.

We understand that greater visibility of your cargo helps you plan your supply chain better.

That's why we've worked with customers to develop a best-in-class container tracking application, enabling you to see the latest status of your cargo as it passes from ship, to shore.

You can keep tabs on the progress of the ship or train carrying your cargo with our live schedules and for more help and visibility, why not contact our dedicated customer services team, who are on hand to help with your queries.
