Guaranteed Exports through London Gateway
A major UK paper exporter has committed to using the new London Gateway port for a significant proportion of its freight. The Nottingham based paper company, which exports through deep-sea shipping to Asia, will use the port when it opens in Q4 2013.
Having a closer container port will allow the company to remove approximately 380,000 lorry miles from its supply chain annually. This should produce significant time, CO2 and haulage cost savings.
