Road freight firm moves to £60m hub

The European road freight team at Europa Road at Grange Park in Northampton has moved to Europa’s new £60m 3pl logistics facility in Corby, as consignment levels continue to increase.

Europa Road is part of ambitious independent logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group. Europa Road’s network of 13 UK branches trunk into Europa’s Dartford 1Hub, from where freight connects with daily, direct services to 30 continental hubs.

The team of nine from Europa Road has moved from Grange Park to a new office suite at the new Corby site.

Branch manager Mitch Clarke said: “It’s an exciting time, 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. Ecommerce has really boomed, and manufacturing is back to near normal. ”

Sales and branch network director at Europa, Dionne Redpath, said: “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.

She added: “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.”
