  • London Gateway due to open later this year

    Reading about the restrictions on the new Triple E class ships and the fact that Suez can cope but Panama can't as well as American ports not being able to take them I was a little taken aback to see that forward thinking in the UK has meant that London Gateway, due to open later this year, is capable of handling them....

    That is seriously going to give Tilbury a smack in the mouth....

    Nice visualisation here:

    good Tilbury is too far from the sea and a hole Hoping we can use it instead of Tilbury on this run it would be a god send!
