Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Message to our customers and partners
Published 25 March 2020
DP World in the UK continues to operate at both Southampton and London Gateway terminals as we work together to keep cargo moving.
All our staff are defined as key workers as we play an important role in the UK supply chain.

Changes to Landside Opening Hours
Published 18 March 2020

It is important we take necessary measures to protect and look after our frontline operational staff so we can keep our terminal running as effectively as we can.

To do this, we are taking a number of measures to de-risk the impact of Covid-19 to our businesses.

From 19th March 2020 onwards our landside operation will cease between:
06:00 – 08:00
18:00 – 20:00

This will allow for a deep clean to take place in our key operational areas.

Please read our full message about landside hours.
