New shipping services are being announced as the second berth at DP World London Gateway opens for business.

Britain’s newest port doubled its capacity as the second berth began operations in May. Five new shipping routes to North America, South America East Coast and West Coast, the Middle East and Europe are starting. New rail, road and container services are also announced.

The G6, one of the world’s largest shipping alliances, will start a new service at DP World London Gateway on Friday, May 16. The arrival of APL’s Margrit Rickmers will signal the start-up of the PA2 (Pacific Atlantic) service, which will be a further boost to the growing geographic spread of shipping services on offer at DP World London Gateway port and logistics park. The New World Alliance (APL, HMM and MOL), which previously operated a similar service to the PA2 previously called at Felixstowe port, however, through the G6 Alliance (APL, HMM, MOL, Hapag Lloyd, NYK and OOCL) the service will now call at DP World London Gateway.

Peter Ward, commercial director, DP World London Gateway, said, “We are very pleased to be welcoming the G6 to DP World London Gateway. It’s another milestone for the team. We are focused on delivering the best possible service for cargo owners and shippers and our connections are growing fast.”

Hamburg Sud and Hapag Lloyd services to South America and the Middle East have recently started.

On Friday, May 2, DP World London Gateway received the Santa Rosa starting the SAEC1 Service (South America East Coast). On Monday, May 5, the Hapag Lloyd Dublin Express called at DP World London Gateway, which started the SAWC1 service (South America West Coast). On Tuesday, May 6 the Hapag Lloyd Tabea called, starting up the EPIC service (Europe Pakistan India Consortium and also known as Hapag Lloyd Indian Ocean Service).

DP World London Gateway has signed a deal with X-Press Feeders Ltd., which is a weekly service linking London Gateway directly with Dublin and Rotterdam. The first call was on Sunday, May 11 and will be calling weekly. Tabare Dominguez, port commercial manager, DP World London Gateway, said, “It’s an important step forward to continue increasing the geographical coverage of London Gateway, in this case to connect DP World London Gateway directly with the Irish market.”

X-Press Feeders is one of the largest independent feeder carriers in the world.

New services connecting DP World London Gateway to inland rail destinations were also recently announced. Freightliner and DB Schenker are now providing daily services to more inland rail destinations.

DB Schenker is serving Manchester, Daventry, Wakefield and South Wales from London Gateway.

Freightliner is now serving Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Glasgow.

Maritime Transport, the country’s largest privately owned container transport operator, has announced a deal to set up a depot at London Gateway. Maritime will take on a site that gives plenty of room for expansion as it serves the growing needs of its customers at the U.K.’s new deep-water port.

Pentalver, an inland container service operator, recently opened a new container facility at DP World London Gateway. Empty storage, dry repair and reefer services are provided at the new facility.

All these new services come on top of the recently announced Prologis logistics hub on the London Gateway Logistics Park.
