The Dartford branch of Europa Road is reporting a record-breaking start to 2017 with consignment growth increasing by 16 per cent compared to quarter one last year.
This success coincides with Europa’s 50th birthday celebration and also with the second anniversary of it’s move to its 1hub facility in Dartford. The opening of the £30 million 26,368m2 site at Albion Road greatly enhanced Europa’s road services, enabling the team to operate more effectively and to achieve double digit growth throughout the network for the past two years.
Paul Melanaphy, Branch Manager for Dartford’s Road team since 2014, said; “Europa’s 1hub facility has done what it was forecast to do; not only has it increased our ability to handle more business in terms of obvious volume, but it also allows us to handle individual items more efficiently. Our service portfolio has grown significantly with the inclusion new daily direct services and additional departures on some existing routes.”
