Transmec Group is extending its range of supply chain solutions after opening a state-of-the-art cross-dock warehouse at London Gateway Logistics Park.

Providing a new home for its London branch, the 165,000 sq ft (15,329 sq m) hub has racking for almost 30,000 pallets and is 50 per cent larger than the branch’s previous base at West Thurrock.

Transmec provides a wide range of transport, logistics and customs services for clients in multiple sectors, including manufacturing, fashion, leisure, pharmaceutical, automotive and food.

The relocation to DP World’s London Gateway Logistics Park is designed to support growth plans by increasing services for existing clients while attracting new customers based in the UK, EU and globally.

“The move will enable us to grow by building on our existing strengths,” said Imran Mohammed, Transmec’s UK general manager.

“We intend to make the most of the new warehouse’s excellent facilities while also taking full advantage of London Gateway’s superb road, sea and rail connections.

“To support the international rail terminal and deep-sea port we’ll be providing complementary services from customs clearance to container shunting and devanning.”

An approved ETSF (External Temporary Storage Facility), Transmec’s warehouse is ideally located for managing imports and exports.

In-house customs clearance expertise includes IPAFFS compliance for food imports for which temperature-controlled storage is available.

Distribution using Transmec’s own fleet of vehicles ranges from last-mile services to central London to domestic and EU-wide collection and delivery.

The London branch will continue to link closely with the Transmec Group network in 40 locations worldwide, including 30 across Europe and North Africa, and further UK warehouses at Redditch, Worcester and Bradford.
