Freight forwarder Europa Air & Sea is set to open a new office in Delhi as it continues its international expansion.

The new office will be the forwarder’s first move into the Indian subcontinent and is part of efforts to “grow its geographical footprint, bringing services closer to customers, and supporting local supply chain requirements”.

Last year, the company opened offices in Shanghai and Dubai.

Angus Hind, Europa Air & Sea Director, said: “This is another significant step for Europa Air & Sea as we enter into the second quarter of 2023.

“India has been a core market for our business for some time. We already handle a considerable volume of business both in and out of India within our existing network, and we have seen an increased demand for services within the region, so this is a natural progression.

“Our office will initially open with a team of 10, all of which have expertise in the logistics sector as well as a solid understanding of the local market.”

The company pointed out that India last year launched its National Logistics Policy, which highlighted the need to grow and invest in the sector.

“The National Logistics Policy aims to cut India’s cost of logistics operations from 13-14% of gross domestic product to a single digit by 2030 and elevate the country into the top 25 nations ranking in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index,” Europa said.

Last year, the Group reported a record turnover of £316m, as well as investment in six new offices across the UK and Europe.
