Dionne Redpath, branch network and sales director at Europa Worldwide, reflects on a very successful 2016 for the business which has been running at 25 per cent consignment and turnover growth in the last six months - and how that growth will be a springboard for further success in 2017.
Europa Road is forging partnerships with three new European companies in Spain, Netherlands and Portugal.
In Spain, Europa will be working with Ekol, a Turkish company which is one of the largest operators in Europe. This will enhance Europa’s routes to and from Spain, and in particular Barcelona where Europa will now be able to offer daily services six days a week to and from the city. It already offers daily services to Madrid and Irun which will continue. Ekol, which was established in 1990, has a turnover of €500m and employs in excess of 6,500 across 85 locations.
