Wincanton to establish 2.5-acre container haulage base at London Gateway


Wincanton has announced plans to establish a 2.5-acre container haulage base at DP World London Gateway.

DP World London Gateway represents a strategic location within the UK’s largest consumer market, and also provides excellent connections to the distribution golden triangle in the Midlands.

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

Chris Fenton, MD Industrial & Transport, Wincanton, commented: “As a major logistics provider, it’s important for us to make sure we have the right facilities in the right places. 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. I look forward to collaborating with our customers to ensure that they continue to reap the benefits of our substantial nationwide coverage as a result of this deal.”
