Creating new role of Domestic Transport Director

Europa has announced that Russ McNally, previously National General Manager for Domestic Transport, has joined the Board in a new role as Domestic Transport Director. Ahead of the launch of its 1hub in Dartford on 1st August Europa Road has strengthened its domestic transport team.

A true Europa veteran, Russ has worked both for and with the firm for close to 40 years and his new role is central to the introduction of the 1hub concept designed to speed up transit times and reduce handling Europa is centralising all of its European road freight.

Russ started his career in HM Diplomatic Service, initially working in Whitehall (Foreign & Commonwealth Office) before moving into the freight business in the 1970s, where he began the Europa association.

He started his career at AGA Freight Ltd, which included running the imports, exports and operations. He also worked at Reeve Freight Services and launched his own business before being approached by Europa Worldwide to return as General Manager - Transport in 1999.

Last month Europa Road announced its centralising its European road freight by creating a single hub at its newly opened 26,368 m2 Dartford site. The launch of this 1hub concept creates the UK’s largest European groupage hub, with all Europa Road's network of 10 regional branches around the UK, trunking directly into the hub.

In the new role Russ will work alongside Operations Director Dan Cook. Previously, domestic transport fell within his remit, but with the expansion and development of the domestic operation an increased role could not be delivered by one person. The new role involves the control, running and development of the Europa UK Network which comprises of Europa operated depots and Regional Partners, supplemented by its membership of the Palletline Network. Russ also has responsibility for the Europa UK Domestic Service.
