Europa Air & Sea is the dedicated Air & Sea division of leading independent logistics provider, Europa Worldwide Group, with services provided including a wide range of inbound and outbound air and sea options, such as Door-to-Door, Door-to-Terminal, Port-to-Port and Cross Trade movements. The Hong Kong branch of Europa Air & Sea opened in 2011 and oversees the movement of freight in and out of China.
Membership of Freight Forwarder Network comes as Europa’s Air & Sea branch in Hong Kong continues to grow its reputation in the region.
Freight Forwarder Network is a not for profit organisation which only allows two members to represent each country, except for larger countries such as China and USA. Members make up a team of qualified and select forwarders able to meet present logistic challenges.
Membership was awarded to Europa’s Air & Sea Hong Kong branch following a rigorous selection process which included in-depth interviews requiring Europa Air & Sea to demonstrate its strategic operational plan in the region.
Angus Hind, Europa Air & Sea Director comments:
“The value of belonging to an established and reputable international network such as Freight Forwarder Network, can’t be underestimated. Over the last four years, the Hong Kong branch of Europa Air & Sea has gone from strength to strength. We are now at a point where we would like to grow the business even further and raise awareness of our expertise. Freight Forwarder Network can help us to achieve this via networking with peers in the region, opening up new business opportunities and providing support when needed.
