Pentalver opens London Gateway site

[ August 3, 2015   //   ]

Container service operator Pentalver has opened the first phase of its new five acre site at DP World London Gateway. The new yard, next to the port’s main gate, can be expanded to nine acres over the coming years.

Pentalver, a subsidary of the AP Moller Group, has been providing empty storage, dry repair and reefer services at its temporary premises at DP World London Gateway since April 2014. From its new site, Pentalver will offer a full range of services, including cargo handling, transport, loaded storage, empty storage, reefer services, maintenance and container refurbishment.

Chris Lawrenson, Managing Director, Pentalver, said: “With phase one now officially open, the facility will play a key role in boosting our national service offering and fulfilling our obligation to respond to the needs of customers at UK locations of their choice.

“Throughout the development of our new premises we have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship with DP World London Gateway and look forward to working in partnership with them as our business grows and we enter the second phase of our development plans.”
