DP World has announced that it has begun work on upgrading its London gateway facility.
The terminal operator plans to build a new berth, the fourth at the facility, in five years. The $387 million project will employ 1,000 people and enable the logistics hub to increase the volume of containers it handles each year by a third.
Last year, London Gateway handled 1.8 million TEUs. DP World forecasts that within ten years, the facility will handle a third of all the UK’s containerized trade.
