Jones Lang LaSalle welcomes opening of London Gateway port


​London, 7th November 2013 - Commenting on the opening of the London Gateway port,  Richard Evans, Joint Head of Logistics at Jones Lang LaSalle, said: “The opening of the London Gateway Port will have a major impact on both the UK and European logistics market and is indicative of the increasing global importance of seaport logistics. Port-centric logistics is rapidly gaining momentum as a source of competitive advantage for cargo owners and there is increasing recognition of the benefits of locating distribution centres at, or close to the ports through which they import/export. The port will reduce transport costs, time to market and carbon emissions for cargo owners and provide  new opportunities for shipping lines to service the UK market.   With 95% of UK international trade being exported by sea, the impact on the UK economy will be significant.”
