MP and PM visit DHL depot

Stephen Metcalfe, Member of Parliament for South Basildon and East Thurrock, welcomed the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, to DHL London Gateway in Stanford-le-Hope on Monday to meet with staff and take part in a PM Connect Q&A session.

DHL London Gateway is one of DHL’s newest logistics depots and takes advantage of its proximity to London Gateway’s container port which handles over 2 million TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) per year and imports goods from around the world.

Mr Metcalfe and the Prime Minister met apprentices and new starters on the Future Leaders Graduate Programme. They discussed opportunities for professional development and the benefits of learning whilst earning.
