Ziegler UK: How super-hubs can change logistics

As Ziegler UK reveal plans to expand into a major new logistics ‘super-hub’, how can expansion improve efficiency and service?

Ziegler UK have announced their plans to expand from its current head-office at DP World’s London Gateway Logistics Park by moving into an adjacent 500,000 square foot ‘super hub’ by the end of 2023.

The upcoming move to London Gateway is underpinned by a prime roadside location, which is strategically positioned for freight operations. It is situated 11 miles from the M25 and 3 miles from the A13, giving direct access to the UK’s major road networks, enabling swift and efficient transportation of goods throughout the country. 

The London Gateway’s proximity to key transportation hubs provides an added advantage. As part of DP World’s comprehensive network, Ziegler’s strong relations with the Port and DP World will offer advantages in coordinating road, air and ocean freight movements.

New technology and sustainable logistics 

The upgrade of facilities is promising other advantages, with advanced inventory management infrastructure and optimised loading docks, to minimise supply chain disruption. 

 “Ziegler’s new facility at London Gateway will prioritise eco-friendly practices and energy-efficient systems. This commitment to sustainability underscores our mission to reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a greener future. For us, sustainability is not just an ideal; it is an integral part of their supply chain strategy,” said the company announcing the development.  

“Efficiency remains at the core of our approach. We will operate with an optimised loading dock, facilitating smooth and swift transfers of goods. Delays will be minimised, and throughput will be maximised, setting new industry standards for freight and logistics efficiency.”
