Investing in Belgian Team Crucial for Driving Sales Growth

European road freight provider Europa Road continues to invest in growing its European based team. The company recently created eight new sales roles and made two internal promotions at its Belgian site, expanding the team’s capacity and offering better support for customers.

Team in EU Doubles in Size

Europa Road Belgium (previously known as Continental Cargo Carriers) has almost doubled its presence in the EU and now consists of a team of 47 in Oostende and the UK. Since it rebranded in September the Belgium operator has increased its service offering for part-load, full-load and groupage distribution. Europa Road transitioned from an established unaccompanied cargo carrier of full and part-loads to one that specialises in a broader depth of services, to and from Belgium.

Carlo Turner, Non-network & Continent Director at Europa Worldwide Group, commented:

“We have expanded our capabilities across sales, customs support and customer service by recruiting new talent and investing in our current team members. Our sales team in Belgium is headed up by the recently promoted Jack Baxter, who has been with Europa Worldwide Group for seven years.

“Jack’s focus is to help both customers efficiently manage their consignments, optimising the flow of shipments between the EU and the UK. Meanwhile, leading the customer service team in Belgium, Frank Goes has been with the firm for more than 25 years. As a veteran of the industry, he has garnered a wealth of experience in directing care and support for customers across a variety of sectors.

“The internal promotions and creation of new roles has allowed us to invest in a larger, more specialist team, boosting in-house expertise and making operations more customer centric. We aim to continue this investment in the coming months, so that we can become to ‘go-to’ freight operator for EU businesses exporting to the UK.”

Investment goes Beyond its Belgium Team

Europa Road’s investment in business growth goes beyond its Belgium team, having recently opened offices in the Netherlands.  In addition, its UK team has opened five new sales offices including Liverpool, Cambridge, Cardiff, Gatwick and Dublin.

Launching Europa Flow

Europa Road continues to launch new services in the UK and the EU, including its market-leading Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) product Europa Flow. This service uses DDP incoterms to take care of customs declarations and duty requirements prior to collection, easing costly, complex paperwork burdens.
