DP World London Gateway Welcomes High-Level Delegation (UK)

DP World Chairman HE Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem this week hosted senior Dubai official HE Mohammed Al Shaibani at DP World London Gateway port and logistics park in the UK.

Mr Al Shaibani is the Director General of the Ruler’s Court of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and the CEO and Executive Director of the Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD).

The GBP1.5 billion DP World London Gateway port in Essex is DP World’s newest development, starting operations with capacity of 1.6 million TEU (twenty foot equivalent container units) 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.

DP World Chairman Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, said:

“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, DP World London Gateway port and park are modelled on our flagship Jebel Ali port and free zone, which has been so successful in helping realise the vision of our leader His Highness Sheikh Mohammed of Dubai as a vibrant, modern city and gateway and hub for the wider region of two billion people.”

During his visit, Mr 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.
