Europa Air & Sea has announced its latest exciting growth plans, the launch of a new office in Delhi, India.
This brand-new location, follows the success of Europa’s latest sites in Shanghai and Dubai, that both opened in 2022.
Europa Air & Sea is part of the Europa Worldwide Group and is setting the pace in the market, leading the sector at a time of immense change. Last year, the Group reported a record turnover of £316m, as well as investment in six new offices, across the UK and Europe (as well as the global sites in Shanghai and Dubai).
This is Europa’s first step into the Indian Subcontinent, which forms part of its ambition to grow its geographical footprint, bringing services closer to customers, and supporting local supply chain requirements.
Angus Hind, Europa Air & Sea Director comments; “This is another significant step for Europa Air & Sea as we enter into Q2 of 2023. India has been a core market for our business for some time. We already handle a considerable volume of business both in an out of India within our existing network, and we have seen an increased demand for services within the region, so this is a natural progression.”
Delhi has been named as one of the UN’s fastest-growing cities, creating significant opportunity for trade imports and exports due to its international airport.
He continued: “Our office will initially open with a team of 10, all of which have expertise in the logistics sector as well as a solid understanding of the local market.
Since launching as a separate division in 2015, Europa Air & Sea, which already has successful teams located across the UK and Hong Kong, has gone from strength to strength.
Hind added: “We have sustained success across the air and sea freight market and I am very much looking forward to this continuing across extended international markets, as we focus on promoting our global forwarding solutions.”
In September 2022 the launch of the National Logistics Policy, provided a roadmap, where the Indian Government and industry stakeholders highlighted the development needed to grow the country’s logistics sector.
The National Logistics Policy aims to cut India’s cost of logistics operations from 13-14 per cent of gross domestic product to a single digit by 2030 and elevate the country into the top 25 nations ranking in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index.
