Europa acquires CCC
Ambitious logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group acquired the specialist part and full load operator, Continental Cargo Carriers in 2018.
Privately-owned Europa is headquartered in Dartford, Kent at the time of the acquisition Europa’s Managing Director, Andrew Baxter said: “This acquisition is not about Europa expanding outside of the UK market. It is about strengthening our offering to and from the UK.
“Continental Cargo Carriers works closely with our Road division. CCC has a proven track record and a solid customer base.”
Etienne Lefevere of CCC added: “We believe becoming part of Europa Worldwide Group perfectly fits in CCC NV’s strategy to further develop its successful partloads service, implement top notch IT solutions to support further growth and provide the best possible service to our long-standing customer base.
“We are impressed by Europa Worldwide Group as very dynamic and ambitious company. Europa Worldwide Group is significantly larger than CCC group and both businesses have a great synergy.”
Europa has 900 staff across sites in the UK and Hong Kong.
