DP World chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem visited London Gateway late last month, the UK’s new deepwater container port and what will become Europe’s largest logistics park.

Touring the construction site with London Gateway chief executive Simon Moore, DP World’s chairman inspected the quay wall for the first berth, which can now be seen clearly exposed to the Thames Estuary.

London Gateway will open in Q4 2013, and when fully operational will be able to accommodate up to six of the world’s largest container ships, offering cargo owners supply chain savings through the terminal’s close proximity to UK markets.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said, “I’m delighted with the progress and the quality of the work I have seen. London Gateway is on track to open in the fourth quarter of 2013.”

Simon Moore, CEO of London Gateway said, “It’s great to be able to see the new quay wall for London Gateway is nearing completion. We are fully committed to delivering supply chain savings from the very start of operations. Deep-sea importers and exporters will soon be able to move closer to their UK markets, reducing costs, time and CO2 from global supply chains.”
