ANOTHER deal has been struck that will see a logistic company locate at the ever-growing London Gateway Logistics Park.
Ziegler UK Ltd, a growing, multi-modal logistics company, has taken a long-term lease on a distribution facility at the park adjacent to DP World London Gateway port.
The 95,000 sq ft warehouse will be the location for its London logistics hub, handling import and export consignments, and will serve as home to its UK headquarters.
Ziegler UK Ltd will offer its customers a range of value-added services from the site, facilitating customs processes, deconsolidation of goods and providing an all-encompassing supply chain service that matches ever-evolving global market demands.
The distribution centre will handle a wide range of products arriving at DP World London Gateway Port from a number of countries around the world.
Lee Marshall, Managing Director of Ziegler UK Ltd, said: “We’re committed to meeting our customers’ expectations at a local and regional level by offering the most responsive, agile and reliable logistics service from factory to point of sale.
“Our newest facility at London Gateway Park is in an unrivalled location, not only right beside DP World’s state-of-the-art deep sea port and rail network, but in close proximity to London, the South East and all major access roads.
The new centre is being built by Readie Construction. Work has started and the facility will be handed over for occupation in April 2020.
Planning consent was achieved just 24 days after submission thanks to an enterprising Local Development Order, which enables Thurrock Council to give developments the go-ahead within 28 days as long as the application meets set criteria.
Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director, DP World London Gateway said: “I am delighted to welcome Ziegler UK Ltd to our growing logistics hub. I am confident that by bringing together different parts of the supply chain in one location, this forward-thinking organisation will be able to surpass the needs and expectations of its clients.
“Ziegler UK Ltd. is the latest business to recognise the value of this location.”
