Europa set to open in Nottingham

[ March 24, 2014   //   ]

Europa Worldwide Logistics, the company bought out by former RH Freight boss Andrew Baxter, is planning to open a new office in Nottinghtam within three months. Europa had an aspiration to fill a gap in its UK network in the East Midlands for some time, and has now selected the city as geographically the best located.

Andrew Baxter stressed that the move was nothing to do with a desire to take business from Kuehne & Nagel, the company which took over RH Freight; a non-competition clause with Europa has now expired. “Nottingham simply fills a gap in the network for us, between our new office in Leeds and Manchester,” Baxter told FBJ.

Europa has already opened an office in Leeds, bringing its network to nine branches, plus its hubs at Birmingham and the London area.

It is also building a new London area hub at Dartford, into which it will move its current operation in Erith in about May 2015. There, it plans to greatly expand its logistics service, alongside increasing its European road groupage services to daily to most destinations.
