Europa Air & Sea, a dedicated division of logistics provider, Europa Worldwide Group, is continuing its ambitious growth plans by investing in a new role.
Matthew Greenway has recently joined the team, bringing with him a wealth of experience, having spent over 13 years working within the logistics and supply chain industry. His previous roles include Sea Freight Manager, covering import and export sales, international business and ocean transportation operations.
Within the new role as Pricing and Procurement Manager, Matthew is responsible for enabling further growth. By reviewing the overarching strategy and working closely with suppliers to drive a closer and better business relationship, the division will continue to grow, in line with Europa’s agenda.
Last year, Europa Air & Sea celebrated reaching a turnover of £35million and its best-ever quarterly results, achieving record growth during the second quarter of 2018.
Matthew Greenway, Pricing and Procurement Manager for Europa Air & Sea, comments: “Joining the team at Europa is like a homecoming for me. It’s where I feel my skill set is best suited and allows me to work within an environment where I can excel. With the division experiencing continued growth, the team has a positive future ahead so it’s a really exciting time for me. My focus will be on developing the strategy and working with the teams to put this to action. Reviewing the customer and supplier journey forms part of this strategy as we strive to deliver best in class customer service whilst also being a good company to do business with. We will continue to operate with our core values and strategy which will prove an enabler to drive the division forward in 2019 and beyond.”
Angus Hind, Europa Air & Sea Director, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Matthew to the team and know his wealth of experience and knowledge will be of huge benefit to us, strengthening our team further. The division’s success over the past few years is responsible for the continued investment in its growth. Creating this new position within the pricing and procurement team is essential, as it creates an opportunity for us to think ahead and focus on our long-term strategy, allowing us to continue to build on our firm foundations as we go into a new year.”
It has been four years since Europa centralized its Air service in Heathrow and its Sea service in Birmingham.
Angus continues: “The continued investment in our services, facilities and staff shows our drive to gain further market share. We’ve seen a steady increase in UK exports for both Air and Sea Freight which is not only fantastic for us, but also a positive reflection on the UK manufacturing industry as a whole.
Angus added: “Our ambition is to recruit further this year, with the aim being to embed at least one Air & Sea Business Development Manager at each of Europa’s 13 branches throughout the UK.”
Europa Worldwide Group is a specialist Road, Air & Sea, Warehouse and Showfreight operator which employs more than 800 staff across 14 sites in the UK, as well as Hong Kong and Belgium.
