As DP World London Gateway celebrated its first birthday, it expanded its network of shipping links and destinations, attracting new deep-sea container shipping services. Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has confirmed its service from South Africa to UK/Northwest Europe will make a direct London Gateway call, switching from the Port of Felixstowe. The new rotation will offer the best possible UK port coverage, MSC has told shippers. The first MSC vessel to call into DP World London Gateway arrived on 7 December.

London Gateway has also been chosen by Hamburg Süd as the UK port of call for a brand new service connecting the North European market with Mexico, Central America and Colombia.


Hamburg Süd launched the new service
to meet its customers’ requests for
a fast, direct, independent service
between North Europe, Mexico and
Central America.


DP World has appointed Import Services to act on its behalf as operator and manager at the Common User Facility (CUF) now being built at London Gateway Logistics Park. Peter Ward, DP World London Gateway’s head of supply chain, said: “Import Services demonstrated a common vision and real understanding of our mission as


the UK’s new deep-water national hub port and logistics park. We found the team to be tuned into our strategy and, combined with their expertise in the field of port-centric logistics, they put forward a very compelling plan.”
