Fuel a more sustainable future

DARTFORD, UK: June 01, 2018. Europa Worldwide Group has bought Ostend-headquartered Continental Cargo Carriers (CCC) that began its trailer freight activities in 1983.

EuropaEuropa’s managing director Andrew Baxter said the central goal behind the acquisition is to strengthen the company's part load service to and from the UK: “This acquisition is not about Europa expanding outside of the UK market. The acquisition will not affect any of our groupage partnerships. Even in Belgium our groupage operation will remain unchanged and our aspiration is for all of CCC’s team to stay in place.

“Continental Cargo Carriers is the ideal fit for our Road division, as it has a proven track record and a solid customer base. In future the Belgium transport and Czech trucking operations will be more or less unchanged, but the UK operation will be integrated with the Europa operation."

Today, CCC operates a fleet of 270 trailers, runs a 4000 m2 warehouse and employs over 100 people in Belgium, the UK and the Czech Republic.

Etienne Lefevere of CCC noted: “We believe becoming part of Europa Worldwide Group perfectly fits in CCC NV's strategy to further develop its successful partloads service, implement top notch IT solutions to support further growth and provide the best possible service to our long-standing customer base.

“To date, we have been impressed by Europa Worldwide Group as a very dynamic and ambitious company. Although Europa Worldwide Group is significantly larger than CCC group, I believe that both companies are very 'complimentary' and have a great synergy.”
