In November 2013, DP World’s $2.4 billion London Gateway deepwater port complex opened with the arrival of the first ship, the MOL Caledon.

The new port, located on the north bank of the River Thames 25 miles east of London, will soon operate a total of six new deep-water berths intended to handle 3.5 million TEU per year and the world’s largest ships as it aims to become one of Europe’s busiest container terminals.
