Europa joins Covid-19 fight

[ May 5, 2020   //   ]

Europa’s Air & Sea forwarding arm has set up a dedicated team in response to the increasing demand for personal protective equipment (PPE). It ensures swift despatch of products to large NHS medical equipment providers.

Director of Europa Air & Sea, Angus Hind, said: “The pandemic has brought a lot of added complexities to our division. The Seafreight team at Europa Air & Sea has encountered some difficulties and the market is seeing some shortages of equipment and space, particularly on the Far East to Europe trade lanes. However, as a division, we are concentrating on ensuring our continuation in service and that we remain open for business.

In recent weeks, Europa has been tasked with moving an array of shipments for a variety of clients, these include CE certified masks for large food retailers and cartons of hand sanitiser.

Europa’s Warehouse arm also supplied the new NHS Nightingale Hospital in London with an urgent delivery of beds.
