Europa Road launches new Baltic route
Europa Road has launched a new route to the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The company said that the new route will be the first of 10 new European services that it plans to roll out over the next year.
Europa has launched the twice-weekly service alongside the Tallinn-based logistics group, CF&S, which has strong road links with Scandinavia, Central Europe and Russia.
The new service is a strategic move in Europa’s rapid service expansion, as the Baltic countries lead the ranking of economic growth in the whole EU. With their central location providing access to 100 million consumers and their specialised sectors of economic activity, the Baltics have fast become an ideal centre of focus for foreign direct investment.
Europa now has 33 European routes, 18 of which are already running daily.
Dan Cook, Operations Director for Europa Road, said: “2016 is set to be our most ambitious year yet and the launch of the Baltics service is just the tip of the iceberg.
“We are well on track to achieve our target of launching 10 new routes this year and extending our reach even further. This couldn’t be done without our trusted network of European partners and we look forward to expanding this to deliver an even better service to our customers.”
“The recent economic growth of the Baltic states made them the perfect choice as their central location acts as a gateway to both Eastern and Western Europe. Increasing foreign investment in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia since the economic crisis proves there is great scope for new business opportunities and we are eager to meet this growing demand.”
