Europa Road offers European road freight services for both import and export customers across Europe.
Service for Full and Part Loads
Europa Road has created a new department at its Sheffield branch (at Broadfield Close) focusing on business development and growth of import, export and cross-trade Full and Part Loads in response to market demands.
Europa Worldwide Group has four divisions – Europa Road, Europa Air & Sea, Europa Showfreight and Europa Warehouse.
New Europa solution
This new non-network solution function will work alongside the existing team in Birmingham who continue their focus on growth of dedicated express van work and management of Full and Part Load key account business.
The entire function is being led by Jason Reek who has been with Europa for four years and whose market experience, drive and energy is already proving very successful.
Same Standards for European Full and Part Load
Branch Network and Sales Director at Europa Road, Dionne Redpath, said this change was vital in order to capitalise on the substantial opportunity this market has to offer. She said: “We’ve invested enormously in our Account Manager team in recent years and those very talented people generate thousands of non-network opportunities every month.
“We know our customers really enjoy our Network Groupage services, high standards of performance, online IT, shipment tracking and being well cared for by their Account Manager.
“It stands to reason that those same customers want their European Full and Part Load business to be managed in exactly the same way. Our customers understand that their shipment might not be moved using Europa equipment but our robust management processes, IT and Account Management give confidence that, always, standards are maintained and requirements are met.”
Europa Road’s non-network solutions team is focused on providing timely, scalable, cost-effective solutions – focusing on the best availability, quality, price and service. Continually engaging with trusted suppliers, the business places enormous importance on strengthening relationships and understanding how to match client and supplier needs. This focused approach means Europa Road is quickly becoming known as the go-to place for European Full and Part Loads.
Slick Cost Effective Solution
Jason Reek said: “It’s my team’s mission to grow the number of European Full and Part Load shipments, converting as many opportunities as possible and we are absolutely open for business. We know our customers are demanding and want a simple, slick, cost effective solution at the time they need it. Our job is to deliver that, using our experience of the European haulage market to provide a quick response, the best availability and a highly reliable solution that behaves in precisely the same way as our network groupage product.
