DHL Supply Chain has announced it is building a 482,000 sq ft warehouse at DP World London Gateway.
Once completed, DHL will lease the facility from DP World London Gateway, which will be the largest single unit at London Gateway’s Logistics Park.
The logistics company believes the facility will be fully automated and ready for operation in early 2023.
Oliver Treneman, park development director at DP World London Gateway, said: “We are delighted to welcome DHL Supply Chain as our latest customer and the largest warehouse development on the Park to date.
“The most striking feature of this new letting is DHL’s significant investment in automation that underpins its commitment to this strategic location. DHL will benefit from the right location, the right infrastructure and the right technology to serve Greater London and the South East over the long term.”
Jeremy Cracknell, senior property development manager at DP World London Gateway, said: “Our Logistics Park is the perfect choice for businesses like DHL looking to save time and instil a level of resilience within their supply chains.
“This latest letting brings the total number of occupiers on the Logistics Park to ten, with DHL joining UPS, Dixons Carphone, MADE.COM, Lidl, Ceva Logistics, P&O Ferrymasters, Halo Handling (SH Pratt), Ziegler UK and Compagnie Fruitiere.”
