Unifeeder is to begin operating a direct service between Gdynia, Poland and DP World’s London Gateway facility as part of its strategy to provide a competitive transport alternative for its customers to ensure a steady flow of cargo to the UK, via multiple points of entry.
DP World has entered into an agreement to acquire 71.3 per cent stake in Puertos y Logistica S.A., (Pulogsa) and will offer US$502 million to acquire all outstanding shares of the business in consideration for 100% equity ownership.
Savills is to become the sole agent for DP World London Gateway Logistics Park responsible for marketing.
DP World has invested in two new Hyster empty container handlers which will allow it to create more capacity in the terminal’s empty park.
DP World has acquired the Unifeeder Group, valued at €660 million, which operates a container feeder and shortsea network in Northern Europe with connectivity to 100 ports, serving both deep-sea container hubs and the intra-Europe container freight market.
