The warehouse is sited on a 2.5-hectare plot adjacent to the deep-water port and will have chilled and frozen chambers to handle temperature-controlled products.

It will allow CMA CGM to offer its customers a wide range of added-value services, in addition to sea-freight offering, such as product quality control, packing, sorting, labelling, palletisation and bagging. It will also offer customs clearance, shunting (transfer from the quay to the warehouse) and delivery transport (last-mile delivery).

Eric Legros, CMA CGM Vice President Specialised Products and Value-Added Services and Jean Vanmalle, Business Development Manager Inland – Supply Chain & Logistics joined DP World executives for a ground-breaking ceremony at DP World London Gateway’s Logistics Park.
