Wincanton to open London Gateway container base

[ August 16, 2017   //   ]

Largest UK logistics company Wincanton is to build a 2.5-acre container haulage base at DP World London Gateway. It will be operational from early 2018.

The site will provide truck parking and office facilities housing an on-site operations team.

Wincanton managing director for industrial and transport, Chris Fenton, said: “We’ve been moving customer containers in and out of DP World London Gateway since it opened, and have seen an increase in our customers’ needs in that location as the site has grown. The location has excellent links to our wider transport network, and this new facility represents a great opportunity to grow our presence in a key strategic location.”

DP World London Gateway chief executive, Chris Lewis, added: “Wincanton has recognised the excellent location and facilities of our site, and we have worked together to ensure that their customers can benefit from them.

“As the largest British logistics company, Wincanton has a vast transport network that spreads throughout the UK, and this new facility will only serve to reinforce that position.”
