Pentalver to expand at London Gateway

No alternative text provided

Pentalver Transport Limited, a subsidiary of Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W), has commenced work on Phase 2 of the Pentalver container facility at Berth 7, DP World London Gateway, the UK deep-sea container port and Logistics Park on the River Thames.

Pentalver opened the first phase of the facility in 2015, following a successful interim operation in support of customers who commenced container operations at the new port.

Phase 2 of the development will add 40% additional capacity to the Pentalver operation and highlights the commitment Pentalver has made to DP World London Gateway following the commercial success it has achieved since the port opened in November 2013.

Chris Lawrenson, Managing Director of Pentalver said:

“I am pleased that work is starting on the second phase of this important expansion project which will significantly enhance our DP World London Gateway operation.

“Pentalver has been in constant dialogue with customers to identify their requirements and we will continue to develop our business to meet their needs at this integrated logistics facility.

“Pentalver has a great working relationship with DP World at London Gateway and Southampton and, as container service providers to common customers, it is imperative that container infrastructure is available to work alongside the state-of-the-art terminal facilities.

“I would also like to thank our parent company, Genesee & Wyoming (G&W) for supporting this investment project within 100 days of our acquisition, highlighting their commitment to growth in the UK container sector.”

James Leeson, Head of Port Commercial at DP World London Gateway said:

“We are delighted to see Pentalver begin expansion of its container depot operation at DP World London Gateway, after a very successful first three-and-a-half years of service provision.

“The company has shown a commitment to build cutting-edge container facilities that complement our own state-of-the-art terminal operations and supply a range of services for our joint customers. These services will include loaded and empty storage, reefer and dry container maintenance and repair, transport and cargo handling.

“We look forward to continuing our close working relationship with Pentalver as the port continues to grow.”
