Container haulier Pentalver Group has this week opened a new depot at DP World London Gateway.

The new facility includes storage for empty containers, dry container repair, and refrigeration services, all of which began operating yesterday (28 April).

A spokeswoman for Pentalver said the site was opened on a trial basis on Friday, but was officially up and running today.

Pentalver MD Chris Lawrenson said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to offer these services at DP World London Gateway.

“This is an example of Pentalver understanding and investing in our customer requirements, and ensuring the services are available when required in the right location.”

The operator, which also has sites in Cannock, Southampton and Felixstowe, last year moved into a larger site at the Port of Tilbury and expanded its empty container storage service.

Peter Ward, commercial director at DP World London Gateway, said: “We are very pleased to see Pentalver here.

“We will now be working with the team at Pentalver to deliver growth for their business over the coming months and years.”
