Europa Road accelerates towards 2016 route target

Ambitious plans by Europa Road to launch 10 new direct daily services for customers in 2016 are gaining momentum with the implementation of its latest route to Salzburg in Austria.

The division of innovative logistics operator, Europa Worldwide Group, continues to invest in its rapidly expanding European partner network to ensure best access to the continent for its customers.

The new route, a mark of Europa’s growing road freight operation and partner network, will run from its innovative 1hub in Dartford.  It follows the recent launch of a new service to the Baltics.  The service runs five times per week to Salzburg.

Salzburg has occupied a leading position in Austria for many years and contributes approximately 18 per cent of its net economic product.  The city is located in the heart of the EU and is an economic hub for business transactions.

Europa’s ambition is to continue increasing its daily service offering.  Currently, the company has 33 road routes servicing Europe, 18 of which operate as daily services.

Dan Cook, Operations Director Europa Road, said: “We’ve established a really strong partner network across continental Europe and are committed to continuing this investment in 2016.

“We’re well positioned to achieve our goal of launching 10 new direct routes this year, growing our European footprint even further and offering the most efficient and effective service for customers.”

A market leader in European express freight services between the UK and Europe for almost 50 years, Europa Worldwide Group employs 600 people across 12 sites in the UK and Hong Kong and is represented in 100 countries.

As well as its successful road freight operation, Europa also provides specialist air and sea, warehouse and show freight services.
