Europa Sheffield Branch

Europa Expansion into Steel City

The UK’s largest independent freight forwarder, Europa Worldwide Group, has expanded its footprint and has chosen Sheffield as the location for its latest Europa Road Sales Branch.
Europa Road is the dedicated division for import and export logistics, offering comprehensive solutions with services including: express, groupage, full and part loads, and timed collection and delivery.
The new office will create opportunities for Europa to provide collection and distribution requirements across South Yorkshire, allowing shipments to be exported across Europe on a daily basis, departing on the same night from 1hub in Dartford.
With Sheffield named as a key city within the Government’s Northern Powerhouse project, and its economic strategy plans for 2020 to become a strong, sustainable, international economy driven by enterprise, innovation and knowledge1, it’s no surprise Europa has expanded its network there.
The expansion into South Yorkshire allows the Europa Road division to tap into new customer markets within advanced manufacturing, presenting a wider opportunity for the company to boost growth and productivity.
Dionne Redpath, Branch Network and Sales Director at Europa, comments: “It’s an exciting time for Europa as we open another Road Sales Branch, helping to refine our footprint. To provide the best service, we’re always looking for new ways in which we can grow and develop the business, and we believe there is a huge opportunity in Sheffield. It’s actually my home town and it’s where I started my career as a transport buyer, so I’m thrilled to announce that we have extended our network there.”
Dionne will be working with Branch Manager, Nathan Lynn, who successfully launched Europa’s Leeds branch in 2018 and this takes Europa’s branch network to Sheffield, Nottingham and Leeds, all having opened in the past five years.
This is the latest expansion into its network of 13 branches, situated across the UK and beyond, all linked to 1hub in Dartford, make it the UK’s largest European groupage.
Andrew Baxter, Managing Director of Europa Worldwide, added: “I am delighted to announce the next stage of Europa Road’s development programme. As a global operator it is vital that we have sales and distribution facilities in all of the key areas of the UK, particularly those showing growth. Sheffield is an area I know well as I started my career there, and is an area forecast to see fast economic growth in the coming years, making it very important for Europa Road to have a presence there. With a fantastic opportunity and a strong team in place we can expect to see positive results and business growth from the new opening.”
