DP World London Gateway has handed over its new temperature controlled warehouse to Halo, who will now occupy the building.
Halo, a part of SH Pratt Group, will undertake the fit out at the warehouse, installing high-tech temperature controlling equipment across nine chambers, including three frozen chambers.
The facility is hoped to be operational and handling chilled and frozen products by October, 2018.
Oliver Treneman, park development director at DP World London Gateway, said: “Halo is going to add value to temperature controlled supply chains, through its mix of expertise and know-how and through operating a high-spec, focused facility on the same site as one of the world’s fastest growing container ports.”
The 100,094 sq ft warehouse space comes with 8,461 sq ft of office space, and the building was completed in less than 24 weeks.
Robert Wells, chairman of SH Pratt Group, said: “Halo will see us drawing on our expertise in delivering a quality service when it comes to handling a wide range of products.
“This will be through a state-of-the-art, fully accredited, fully-focused facility, which coupled with the Group’s sister company, Kinship Logistics, and its ideal location at DP World London Gateway Logistics Park, will be able to pass on tangible savings to customers and also reduce demurrage by offering a rapid turnaround.”
