Europa Air & Sea Sales Soar Sky High
The Air & Sea division of leading logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group has seen exponential growth in the volume of its imports and exports over the last three years and as a result is investing in new Business Development team members.
Europa Air & Sea recorded some of its best ever results in Q2 of this year for import growth within both its air and seafreight operations. As a result, the division has taken on three new Business Development Managers within the last 12months that are based in Leeds, Manchester and Bristol.
National Air & Sea Sales Manager at Europa Miles O’Donnell said the original team’s success over the past few years was the reason for its continued investment in its growth. He said: “We can see that the structure and processes that we have implemented across the division are working well and sales is a vital element of this.
“Our company has seen significant growth over the last four years since Andrew Baxter acquired Europa and restructured it so that Air & Sea, as well as Showfreight and Warehouse, were clearly defined arms of the business. We have heavily invested in our team, our service, our expertise and our partner relationships and business has boomed for the Air & Sea team.
“At the moment both our Air & Sea divisions are acquiring business on almost every trade lane imaginable. We consider new business on a case by case basis, taking the time to fully understand the client’s needs and expectations to ensure our commitment to exceptional service levels is intrinsic from the start.’’
The latest business development manager to join the division is 25-year-old Jack Trott. Jack, who previously worked for Kuehne + Nagel, is based at Europa’s Bristol branch. He said: “I’m really enjoying my time here and everyone has been very welcoming since I came on board. Everyone is professional, determined and focused. My local knowledge of the South West will allow me to efficiently service our customers across the region. The growth that Europa’s Air & Sea division has seen attracted me to the business because it shows that its ambitious plans for growth are working and I am very excited to be a part of it.”
Europa is a member of the FETA Freight Systems International Network (FFSI), a global agent network of companies offering the full spectrum of transport services.
As well as its successful Air & Sea freight operation, Europa Worldwide Group also provides specialist road, warehouse and showfreight services. The business, which is this year celebrating its 50th anniversary, is operating at around 25 per cent growth across the board, broke through the £100m turnover barrier at the end of 2016 and is on target to exceed £200m turnover by the end of next year.
