(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Dp world chairman sultan ahmed bin sulayem this week welcomed senior dubai official mohammed ibrahim al shaibani to the dp world london gateway port and logistics park in the uk

Al shaibani is the director general of dubai ruler’s court and the ceo and executive director of the investment corporation of dubai (icd). during his visit al shaibani reviewed the extensive environment protection measures taken at the site during construction and toured what will be europe’s largest logistics park with 9.25 million square feet of warehouse capacity.

The £1.5 billion dp world london gateway port in essex is dp world’s newest development starting operations with capacity of 1.6 million twenty foot equivalent container units (teu) in november 2013. over the winter its location and its facilities allowed it to handle eight unscheduled vessel calls as bad weather closed other ports in the uk.


Bin sulayem said: “i am proud and pleased to welcome al shaibani to dp world london gateway. our investment in the uk to build facilities to support british trade not just for today but for the long term reflects the close relationship between dubai the uae and the uk. indeed the dp world london gateway port and park are modelled on our flagship jebel ali port and free zone which has been successful in helping realise the vision of our leader his highness shaikh mohammed bin rashid al maktoum vice-president and prime minister of the uae and ruler of dubai as a vibrant modern city and gateway and hub for the wider region of two billion people.”


Only 25 miles from london dp world london gateway is now the closest deep sea port to uk’s largest markets — london birmingham and manchester. this means british importers and exporters can save hundreds of millions of pounds every year from reduced transportation of goods across the uk. shipping closer saves businesses time money and co2.
