More London Gateway moves

[ March 8, 2014   //   ]

Hamburg-Sud and Hapag Lloyd are to transfer their services from Tilbury to DP World’s new London Gateway in May, including calls to and from South America East Coast, South America West Coast and India, Pakistan and Middle East.

DP World London Gateway has also handled ten ad hoc vessel calls when other UK ports were closed or congested by the recent bad weather.

London Gateway has become the first UK port to use a quad lift system on its quay cranes, which can pick up four twenty foot containers in a single lift, effectively doubling the number of containers that can be unloaded from a ship at a time.
