PARTNER

With no clear end in sight and whatever happens post 29 March, retailers need robust plans in place to ensure that – in the event of reduced capacity or delays at key ports – they can continue to ensure timely and efficient transit of goods from the EU to the UK.

This roundtable, with our partners at DP World London Gateway, will help members explore different methods of cargo transportation, the practicalities and key considerations of implementation.

Tour the facility

Members will also benefit from the unique opportunity to tour DP World London Gateway’s state-of-the-art deep-sea port and logistics park, and see first-hand how cargo is being moved through the port and to stores throughout the UK.
