Europa Road, has extended its services with the launch of a dedicated new Nordic Hub in Leeds. Europa is building new daily services from the hub to Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
Europa Road is the European road freight division of leading logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group.
The Nordic Hub has been designed to better serve customers based in the northern part of the UK, who have a requirement to ship groupage and part and full loads to and from the Nordic countries.
The Nordic Hub services Europa Road’s Northern UK customer through its branches in Birmingham, Nottingham, Sheffield, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds going to Oslo, Gothenburg, Aarhus, Copenhagen and Helsinki.
The new service offers direct services via the ports of Immingham and Hull. The Nordic Hub utilises Europa Road’s existing and successful distribution partner platforms with Freja in Denmark and NTEX in Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Dionne Redpath, Sales Director, said “The Nordic Hub has been developed to provide competitive, local collection and consolidation in a centrally-located platform. This launch comes after two years of research and investment. These new daily lines will bring all of the benefits customers have come to expect from Europa, both in terms of quality of service but also reliability service – if it misses today’s departure it will be catch the next.”
The Nordic Hub, will work to the same standards and principles as Europa’s hugely successful Dartford hub, utilising the latest technology Leonardo offering full track and trace.
The new service is being led by Jason Reek, who becomes Market Manager, and will be supported by Paul Homiak who has recently joined Europa. Jason has over 25 years’ experience in transport and logistics and previously headed up Europa’s £20m warehouse operation at ProLogis Park, Minworth, in Birmingham for the last three years.
Andrew Baxter, Managing Director at Europa added: “This is a major strategic development for the Europa Road offering and allows us to move another step closer to clarifying our position as the number one groupage and part-load operator in the UK.”
As well as its road freight services, Europa also provides dedicated air & sea, warehouse and showfreight services. The business operates 14 sites across the UK, Hong Kong and Belgium and is represented in more than 100 countries.
