En Route looks to European expansion
As part of its investment in its European business, En Route International is launching a new Belgian facility and has appointed a dedicated Madrid-based business development manager.
En Route's new facility, not far from Antwerp, Belgium, will be the base for its European distribution network. The location will enhance the company's packing and logistics operations in mainland Europe to create a base for further growth in the region, according to today's announcement from the company.
The company has also created a new role for Julio Parra: Business Development Manager for mainland Europe. Parra moves to this role after being based at the company's UK head office for the past 18 months, and with his experience in Spain and the UK he will help En Route expand its logistics, packing and sales focus in mainland Europe.
En Route has developed a strong presence in Europe over the past 10 years with a supply chain and weekly distribution capability covering frozen, chilled and ambient regimes. This enables the company’s global customer base to provide network-wide product solutions to all major airports and regions across Europe.
Hamish Cook, Executive Director of En Route, said in a release: “We have been very successful in expanding our global operating platform to provide innovative solutions to major airlines in the USA, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Europe.
“The resourcing of a more European-focused business is a natural extension of this strategy and allows us to provide an agile customer-focused response to one of our key markets in a post-Brexit Europe.”
