The company said the new account managers will help onboard clients at a faster rate which it added is necessary due to increasing demand for its customs service Europa Flow.

Redmile said: “I’m delighted to be able to lead the growing Europa Road sales team. Having local branch offices is an important part of our core strategy so that we have local teams, with local knowledge who can actively support our customers with their road freight requirements.

Andrew Baxter, chief executive officer at Europa Worldwide Group, added. “I’m delighted to welcome Adrian to the Europa Board and pleased that we can recognise talent within the business with this promotion.
