Europa offers part-load option

[ July 13, 2022   //   ]

Europa Worldwide Group’s Europa Road arm is offering a part-load service for shipments that are too big for groupage but too small to warrant a full load. Europa’s road freight network ordinarily accommodates one to six UK standard pallets, but the part-load export service will take consignments of 6-20 pallets. Part-load collections will be carried out on Europa’s own vehicles to guarantee availability, and then consolidated with other part-loads requiring delivery to similar destinations.

Users of the service can also use the  Europa Flow delivered duty paid (DDP) service.

Europa Road UK manager Marco Ric omini, said: “Many hauliers have been reluctant to carry part loads, due to an increased risk of customs delays and transit hold-ups. This means demand for such a service is outstripping supply.

“By accessing our own fleet and unique customs solution, we are alleviating some of these complications around customs clearance by offering a door-to-door EU wide export part load service with rates and transit times consistent with our network product.

“This approach – which is delivered through a single point of contact in our trusted Europa Road team – is designed to maximise efficiencies and drive down costs which can then be passed back to our customers.”
