The UK’s first deep-sea container port for over 25 years is the most technically advanced container port in the world, integrated with Europe’s largest logistics park to provide access to the largest consumer markets in the UK.
The new port at Stanford-le-Hope in Essex will eventually handle 3.5 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units), providing a much needed increase in capacity for the UK’s container terminals.
The logistics park will offer 9.5 million sqft for sorting incoming goods for distribution direct to retail outlets, cutting out lengthy road transport.
The £1.5 billion project is the largest investment scheme in the South East of England and currently set to be the largest creator of new jobs in the UK.
Chetwoods developed the overall masterplan for the project and will be responsible for the design of the individual units that will be located on the 1,500 acre logistics park, ranging in size between 100,000 sqft and 1m sqft.
