Ambitious global logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group has recruited a new Seafreight Operations Manager to steer its import and export offering towards further growth and expansion.
Experienced Operations Manager Scott Powell joins Europa Air & Sea, a dedicated division of Europa Worldwide Group, shortly after the air and sea business achieved a record £35million turnover milestone. Europa Worldwide Group recently announced its annual financial results for year ending 31st December 2018, showcasing record turnover and profit – the turnover has increased by 25 per cent to £180m, net profits have risen to £5.2m and net assets have increased to £11m.
Scott joined Europa from a regional freight forwarder where he was responsible for managing a multi-modal team, delivering exceptional customer service, and focusing on productivity within the operation. He worked his way up to a managerial position having joined the industry straight from school, boosting his skill set along the way to cover supplier, budget, route and project management, along with tender proposals, process improvement and sales negotiation.
Scott said: “I’m delighted to join Europa Air & Sea at such an exciting time for the business, when turnover is at its highest ever, profits are soaring and new business is always on the agenda. I was attracted to the business because it really stands out from its competitors with its bold brand, extremely ambitious goals and revolutionary processes – while at the same time having a really close-knit family-feel to the team.”
