03 May 2024/Categories: Industry News, Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain

DHL Supply Chain has welcomed Prime Minister, Rt Hon Rishi Sunak, to its recently opened London Gateway facility for a first-hand experience of how goods flow through the UK supply chain and into shops and homes.

DHL said it's London Gateway is one of the most environmentally sustainable industrial buildings in the country, featuring 3,700 solar panels, which produce 27% of the site’s power usage. The site is the tallest in Europe and currently handles 2.4k pallets of goods a day.

Saul Resnick, CEO DHL Supply Chain UK and Ireland, gave the Prime Minister a tour of the facilities before a group of DHL colleagues were invited to the latest PM Connect town hall event.

Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak said: “It was a pleasure to visit DHL’s London Gateway distribution centre to speak to staff and tour the impressive site. DHL and Mars’ £350 million investment into this site is a big boost for the area, creating hundreds of jobs.

“Jobs create growth, and financial security which is one of my top priorities, and it was great to see this in action.”

Saul Resnick, CEO DHL Supply Chain UK and Ireland, added: “We were delighted to welcome the Prime Minister to our world-class facility to show how DHL is enabling growth for British businesses, developing infrastructure for a more sustainable future and investing in talent. It was a fantastic opportunity for our colleagues to showcase the essential work they do to keep goods flowing around the country as well as ask important questions about the issues that matter to them.”
