Final Destination logistics exhibitor DP World has announced today that Transmec UK has become the third company in four months to locate at London Gateway.
The new 150,000ft2 distribution hub will provide Transmec UK access to supply chain solutions, warehousing, and road and rail links.
As part of Thames Freeport, London Gateway also offers an array of financial incentives for businesses looking to expand or establish new operations.
Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director at DP World in the UK said: “Over the past ten years, DP World has invested £2 billion in the UK to create the right trading infrastructure and smart logistics solutions, providing customers with fast, reliable and flexible links to international supply chains and markets.
“The Logistics Park’s proximity to both a deep-water port and London cuts transport costs between port and distribution centre, and between distribution centre and markets, providing businesses like Transmec UK optimal control over their supply chains.”
Ready for occupation in 2023, Transmec’s new facility will be constructed to meet BREEAM ‘outstanding’ classification – the world’s leading sustainability standard for building construction, ensuring a 30% carbon reduction during construction and a 40% reduction in operational carbon emissions.
