Work has begun on a 482,000 sq ft warehouse for DHL Supply Chain at DP World London Gateway.
DHL will construct the brand-new bespoke facility at Plot 3040 on London Gateway’s Logistics Park with the main facility build due to commence in early 2021. On completion, DHL will lease the facility from DP World London Gateway.
The 42m high bay warehouse will feature 36m of clear internal eaves height. DHL said it would be fully automated and ready for operation in early 2023.
When completed, the facility will be the largest single unit at London Gateway’s Logistics Park.
Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director at DP World London Gateway, said: “The most striking feature of this new letting is DHL’s significant investment in automation that underpins its commitment to this strategic location.”
DHL joins UPS, Dixons Carphone, MADE.COM, Lidl, Ceva Logistics, P&O Ferrymasters, Halo Handling (SH Pratt), Ziegler UK and Compagnie Fruitiere at DP World London Gateway.
