HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh visited DP World’s London Gateway during the same week that the country’s newest and biggest container port would open in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The Duke was welcomed by joint vice chairman of DP World Sir John Parker and the London Gateway team, who gave him a tour of the construction site and hosted a reception which included customers, local MPs and local councillors.

Sir John said “His Royal Highness was very interested in all aspects of the engineering project taking place at the new London Gateway container port and logistics park. He met with our young British engineers of the future who are working on the site and viewed the construction work taking place at the new port.”
