The Europa Road European road freight team has moved to Europa Worldwide’s new 3PL logistics facility in Corby.
Europa Road operates the UK’s largest European groupage hub. Its 13 branches trunk into its Dartford 1Hub where it connects with daily, direct to 30 European hubs.
The move from the Europa Road offices in Northampton is to the new Corby site 30 miles away. They are part of the Europa Worldwide national road freight operation, and offer comprehensive import and export solutions across Europe.
Sales and Branch Network Director at Europa, Dionne Redpath, comments: “We’re pleased to be moving our team to the brand-new site, at a time when the road freight business continues to get better. The Northants team are a key part of regional office network, ensuring we have local branches to support our local customer base.”
“We continued to operate as normal throughout the pandemic with staff, where possible, working remotely. We didn’t reduce our services or add Covid-19 surcharges which has certainly paid dividends as the national lockdown continues to ease and manufacturing resume.”
Branch Manager, Mitch Clarke who has worked for Europa for four and half years leads the Corby branch team and has recently hired two more members of staff. He added “We’re doing really well, back to pre-Covid-19 numbers and last month was actually our second-best month on record.
“We’ve won a lot of new business with many of our existing customers growing organically. E-commerce has really boomed, and manufacturing is back to near normal.”
