Pentalver inks contract on permanent London Gateway depot

[ January 21, 2015   //   ]

Pentalver is to develop a permanent depot at DP World London Gateway. The container service operator has been providing empty storage, dry repair and reefer services from temporary premises since April 2014 but will now build a permanent facility, to be built in two phases.

Pentalver will operate out of a purpose-built facility on a five-acre site, and the second phase will expand the facility to nine acres within five years.

When the first phase opens for business in April 2015, Pentalver will offer cargo handling, transport, loaded storage, empty storage, reefer services, maintenance and container refurbishment.

Pentalver managing director, Chris Lawrenson, said: “Our DP World London Gateway operation has gone from strength to strength since opening our temporary site. Our new permanent depot…not only offers us the potential for growth, but reinforces our commitment to investing in our customers’ requirements at locations of their choice.”

The port’s CEO, Simon Moore added: “Pentalver will provide a suite of complementary services for our shipping lines and we will work together to ensure speedy, smooth and efficient connections between our operations and those of the container depot.”
