As CEO Andrew Baxter revealed to Trans.INFO in the new year, the Europa Worldwide Group has announced a £500,000 investment in 3 new sites that shall increase the company's UK European road freight sales network.
The 3 new sites add to the Europa Worldwide Group’s existing 13 sites. The new branches are due to open on 1 May and will enable the firm to maximise its services to meet growing customer demand for both import and export – specifically on its pan European daily services.
The new locations are intended to fill geographic gaps across the North, East, and West between its existing sites. The company states that the branches in in Cambridge, Liverpool and Cardiff correspond to a 23% increase in its sales network.
Explaining the reason behind the location choices, Europa Worldwide said each site was located in “economically strong, growing cities and areas” adding that Cambridge specifically is “an international hub of innovative businesses which generates £23.7 billion of national output.”
The investment is also part of part of the Europa Road strategic growth plan announced by Branch Network and Sales Director, Adrian Redmile.
Commenting on the investment, Adrian Redmile said:
“It’s an extremely exciting time for Europa. Our strategy is to deliver excellent customer service via locally managed channels putting our products and services at the heart of the region we are servicing. Enhancing our sales network is an important part of our national strategy to fill the gaps and thus increase our footprint across the country.”
“Our consultative approach to business is central to our expansion plans. Having branches in these areas will allow us to support local businesses to reduce admin and cost from the supply chain, while improving transit times. All of which have been effected post Brexit and after the removal of UK Easements. We see real growth potential in these areas.”
