News in Photos: The Largest Ever on the Thames

The largest ship ever to enter the Thames arrived at DP World London Gateway yesterday (19th October 2014) in the early hours of the morning.

The 397-metre-long, 56-metre-wide Edith Maersk has a draught of 16 meters and can carry up to 15,500 standard containers.

With brand new state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment, London Gateway, when fully operational, will bring greater reliability to supply chains. Also, shippers will have access to London Gateway’s 9 million square foot logistics park, Europe’s largest consumer market and existing distribution hubs in the UK’s Midlands.
