Europa Road, a dedicated division of the ambitious independent logistics provider, Europa Worldwide Group, has added two additional services to its operations in Denmark by sealing a new partnership with leading Nordic logistics company, FREJA.
FREJA’s reputable capabilities as a Scandinavian market leader, handling over 1.6m consignments per year, has enabled Europa to increase its daily Danish services. The route, which previously ran one way for exports, will now operate in both directions every day between Copenhagen and Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus and Europa’s £30m groupage facility, 1hub, in Dartford.
The new partnership comes at a time of rapid growth for Europa, which is currently achieving 25 per cent volume growth across all divisions and aims to strengthen the company’s presence in Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia. The new daily routes, paired with a competitive pricing strategy and efficient service, help to further expand Europa’s European footprint and realise its ambition to become market leader between the UK and the continent by 2018.
Operations Director at Europa, Dan Cook, said FREJA has facilitated a huge step forward for Europa’s Danish product offering. He said: “Our decision to work with FREJA is set to have implications on our whole European operation, with additional import services already providing huge benefits for existing customers, whilst also attracting new customers who can now capitalise on our increased capabilities.”
Dan continued: “As a business we have hit some major milestones in the past year and for the road division to reach its ambitious targets for the future, it’s essential to work innovatively and stay at the forefront of developments in our field. Working with leading players such as FREJA, which operates some of Scandinavia’s most specialised freight and IT systems, will help to strengthen our growth trajectory, cater for increasing demand for our services, improve efficiencies and help to grow our customer base in the UK and Denmark.”
Europa’s turnover pushed through the £100 million mark at the end of 2016 and the business’ goal is to reach £200m by the end of 2018. It currently operates 35 road routes across Europe, 20 of which run daily. As well as its specialist European road freight solutions, Europa also provides dedicated air and sea, warehouse and showfreight services.
