Extending support for freight forwarders

Carlo Turner

Europa Road has introduced its Europa Direct, a specialist service that provides unaccompanied part or full loads for freight forwarders shipping between the UK, and the Benelux and Rurh regions.

The UK Government reports that trade to Belgium equates to roughly £59.1bn. In order to maximise trade between the UK and the Benelux, the Europa Direct team of experts will be available to monitor capacity and location of these trailers and provide support for customers.

Carlo Turner, Non-Network & Continent Director said: “Rising costs and added complexity associated with transporting goods post-Brexit means that now more than ever, we must be prioritising a fast, reliable and seamless movement of goods.

“Europa Direct is the next service dedicated to providing this, with a team of experts at hand to advise and support customers shipping between the UK, and Benelux and Ruhr regions. The team of 10, led by Manager Marco Riccomini, will be split between our 1Hub in Dartford, the UK’s largest European groupage hub, and our Oostende office, offering support for freight forwarders on both sides of the channel.

Europa Road is the European road freight division of Europa Worldwide Group and operates more than 60 unaccompanied trailer journeys across the North Sea every day.

“The team will have access to the latest trailer availability information to ensure a prompt, hassle-free booking process. Not only does this ensure our freight forwarders can ship on excellent shipping terms, but it also allows us to fill our trailers, minimising wasted journeys.”
