Europa signs deal with Malta’s Parnis England

[ August 13, 2018   //   ]

Europa Road has become Malta road operator Parnis England’s new agent, replacing Knights of Old. The two partners will operate a weekly service between Dartford and the island, which is the second farthest destination on Europa Road’s current network.

Europa operations director, Dan Cook (pictured) said the new route was expected to yield around 200 export collections per week and 50 import deliveries.

He said: “It’s another string to our bow and broadens the range of products we’re able to offer our customers in house. There are only a handful of providers serving Malta, and many of them are specialised, doing nothing else, so we’re looking to provide our customers with more choice and the backing of our experienced and solutions-focused road team, without sourcing solutions from outside of our own product range.”

Cook added: “We see it as an opportunity to grow and diversify our offering. While Malta is one of the smallest destinations we service, it punches well above its weight and due to its strategic position remains an important trading post within Europe.”
