Revenues at logistics operator hit £300m target

Logistics firm, Europa Worldwide Group, saw its turnover for the last 12 months hit the £300m mark.

Europa’s Sheffield branch is home to around 20 staff and forms part of Europa Road which provides road freight distribution to and from Europe.

It one of the firm’s newer sites, which opened in 2018 as the Group expanded its footprint further across the UK.

The site made a significant contribution to the overall Group target by itself breaking the £1m turnover goal for the first time during the past year.

Two representatives on Europa’s Board are chief operating officer Dionne Redpath, and branch network and sales director Adrian Redmile, and both work in Sheffield and live locally.

The wider group now aims to achieve a £400m turnover by the end of 2023.

Its overall growth plan includes new global sites and expansion across all its road freight, air and sea freight, and 3pl divisions.

Andrew Baxter

From being an operation with 450 staff and a turnover of £76m when chief executive Andrew Baxter acquired the company in 2013, Europa now has over 1,300 staff, and has recently opened three new road freight sales branches, complementing Sheffield and the now 16-strong branch network.

Baxter said: “We would not have achieved these excellent results without the continued enthusiasm and commitment of our talented and growing team.

“They showed huge resolve when we were hit by Covid-19, where possible moving fully remote within days, and continued to service our customers across all divisions when many reduced or even stopped their services.

“I am incredibly proud of our team, and in particular the Sheffield branch for their contribution to this achievement.

“I look forward to working with them on another exciting period of growth with our plans firmly on track to hit our ambitious £400m turnover target for 2023, with our sights on hitting a turnover of £1bn through organic growth.”
