En Route International has today announced the launch of a new Belgian facility and the appointment of a dedicated Madrid-based business development manager – marking a major new investment in its European business.
The facility, near Antwerp, will see En Route enhance its packing and logistics operations in mainland Europe, creating a base for further growth in the region. It will be the base for En Route’s European distribution network.
The company, a leading provider of food and service solutions for the onboard travel market, has also appointed Julio Parra as business development manager for mainland Europe, in a newly created role.
Parra, who has been based at the company’s UK head office for the past 18 months, brings a wealth of sales experience from both Spain and the UK. He will work with En Route’s global team to expand its logistics, packing and sales focus in mainland Europe.
En Route has developed a strong presence in Europe over the past 10 years with a supply chain and weekly distribution capability covering frozen, chilled and ambient regimes. This enables the company’s global customer base to provide network wide product solutions to all major airports and regions across Europe.
Hamish Cook, executive director, said: “We have been very successful in expanding our global operating platform to provide innovative solutions to major airlines in the USA, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Europe.
“The resourcing of a more European focused business is a natural extension of this strategy and allows us to provide an agile customer focused response to one of our key markets in a post Brexit Europe.”
