Thames Crossing For Tilbury
Last week saw the chosen route for the new Thames Crossing announced, which will connect Tilbury and Gravesend, meaning journey times to Dover and mainland Europe will be reduced.
The new route, which will be some years in construction, will bring much needed relief to the busy Dartford crossing, by connecting the M25 in Essex with the A2 in Kent.
Journey times from South Essex to Dover could be reduced by around 30 minutes off peak and by 60 minutes, or more, during peak times. The new route will be a major boost for logistics services from Uniserve’s Tilbury Super DC.
Recently, we brought you news of the first ever rail freight train services to and from China, which arrive and depart within a stones throw of our operations. With the ports of London Tilbury and London Gateway also close by, the new Thames Crossing will strengthen the position of our Super DC, which is now at the epicentre of the UK’s global logistics base.
The planned shorter route to Dover, which handles around 17% of the UK’s import and export traffic, and the Channel Tunnel in Folkestone, will be a boost to Uniserve’s award winning road freight services. Having been the UK’s leading ‘go-to’ European logistics provider for many years, our road connections with the Kent coast are essential.
Our European Transport Division provide regular and reliable services throughout the continent, with daily import and export trailer services covering all major European cities.
Combined with our ideally positioned Super DC, and our uniquely developed One World supply chain accelerating platform, Uniserve are providing seamless global solutions to European distribution for many of the UK’s leading brands.
