In January 2014 Europa made an agreement with Prologis, the leading global owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate, for the new 26,368 square metre facility which has been built to meet the company’s exact requirements.
Europa's state-of-the-art facility offers extensive warehouse facilities and will become the UK's largest European groupage hub.
Strategically located off junction 1A of the M25, the new building has been designed to support the company’s road freight operations and benefits from excellent road connections with the A2, A20, A13, the Channel Tunnel and the A2/M2 to the port of Dover.
The site became operational in May 2015 and the move marked the biggest single investment ever made by the company. All 230 Europa staff based at the existing head office in Erith relocated.
The new facility is designed to achieve a minimum BREAAM 2011 ‘very good’ accreditation and the best EPC rating possible for its size.
