Transmec agrees ‘customer driven’ move to London Gateway
Transmec UK is responding to customer demand by agreeing a move to a state-of-the-art 14,000 sq m distribution hub on the prestigious London Gateway development.
Providing sought-after warehousing space, the relocation will increase the London branch’s size by 40 per cent and enable it to develop its range of tailored supply chain solutions.
The UK’s most connected intermodal logistics site, London Gateway offers a three-berth, deep-sea container port, an international rail freight terminal and easily accessible road connections.
With the area forming part of Thames Freeport, there is also potential for Transmec’s customers in the UK and EU to take advantage of simplified customs procedures and suspended customs duties.
The hub will be completed in 2023 when the branch will move from its current London site at nearby West Thurrock.
“London Gateway is a fantastic location that will enable us to take our services to the next level,” said Imran Mohammed, manager of Transmec’s London branch.
“It’s a move that will really benefit customers. As well as utilising the increased storage space, we will extend our logistics offer and develop the existing freight transport solutions we provide by road, rail and sea.”
Transmec’s high-tech hub will be constructed to meet BREEAM ‘outstanding’ classification – the world’s leading sustainability standard for building construction, ensuring a 30 per cent carbon reduction during construction and a 40 per cent reduction in operational carbon emissions.
The London branch will continue to link closely with the Transmec Group network in 28 locations across Europe, including further UK warehouses at Redditch, Worcester and Bradford.
