The UK’s new global shipping port and logistics centre project, London Gateway, will open at the end of 2013, owners DP World have announced.

DP World say that that it will be ‘Britain’s most environmentally-friendly major new port’ and that ‘UK business will soon be able to take advantage of a more cost effective, greener way of getting the nation’s goods to consumers’.

Simon Moore, chief executive of London Gateway said, "I’m very pleased to be able to take London Gateway forward to opening, our team is 100% committed to delivering supply chain savings from Q4 2013 onwards. London Gateway will offer a unique proposition to British cargo owners. Importers and exporters will be provided greater choice and opportunity to take costs out of their supply chains and reduce their environmental impact."

In addition to the opening date, the company announced the creation of an extra 1,000 jobs – 700 new construction jobs and 300 new port jobs in the coming months.

When complete, the London Gateway will be the largest deep-sea port in the UK.
