Europa Road’s network of 13 UK branches link Europe with 30 daily services via its Dartford, Kent hub. Torrestir and Europa Road have begun four services a week between Dartford and Portugal.
Established in 1962, Torrestir operates 1,110 vehicles and makes 5.2 million deliveries a year supporting the fashion, pharmaceutical, automotive and technology sectors.
Europa Worldwide Group Operations director Dan Cook (pictured) commented: “Both companies background and values are very much aligned, providing a first class, personal service for our customers. Torrestir’s own distribution system, strong position in the Portuguese market with a high level of existing traffic, and a focus and desire to develop the UK market, made the company a clear choice as the optimum partner.”
Torrestir general manager Luis Torres added: “With nearly 60 years of experience, Torrestir has a deep understanding of the logistics landscape in Portugal and are constantly adapting to market needs. We are very much looking forward to working with Europa Road.”
