As Britain’s new hub port celebrates its first birthday, DP World London Gateway has expanded its network of shipping links and destinations, attracting a series of new deepsea container shipping services.

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has confirmed that from next month, its service from South Africa to UK/North-west Europe will make a direct London Gateway call, switching from the port of Felixstowe. The new rotation will offer the best possible UK port coverage, MSC has told shippers. The first MSC vessel to call into DP World London Gateway on the new rotation will be the MSC Rita, which is due to arrive 7th December.
