Tilbury and London Gateway partner-up for UK freeport bid
The Loadstar reports that the UK government’s insistence that freeports will be one advantage of Brexit has seen Forth Ports and DP World announce a partnership to bid for one, incorporating the ports of Tilbury and London Gateway.
There has been speculation that Tilbury and London Gateway, both on the River Thames, could cooperate; the two operations “have the scale, global connectivity and the ability to expand and develop land at scale as the market demands”, said the companies, which have appointed Vivid Economics to provide analysis..
The plan is to digitally connect the two, creating additional employment, with a bid expected to be submitted at the end of this year or early next.
