Dartford logistics firm Europa Worldwide Group to hire 40 customs staff ready for Brexit

By Chris Britcher

A logistics company has embarked on a major recruitment drive in order for it to be ready for Brexit.

Independent Dartford-based firm Europa Worldwide Group is to hire 40 customs clearance and operation stall between now and March 29 - the date of the UK's expected formal departure from the EU.

It will be seeking both permanent and temporary roles.

It already employs 341 people at its headquarters in Albion Road, with 800 across all its sites in the UK, Hong Kong and Belgium.

Managing director Andrew Baxter said: “We have plans in place to ensure we’re ready to switch to a full customs clearance from March 29 if necessary, and we’ve been engaging with clients.

"We have expanded capacity in our 1Hub facility to create space for freight that may become slowed down by the clearance process, and reviewed varied options for alternative shipping routes.

"We’re facing the possibility of a big change, and a challenging one at that, but we’re doing all we can to be prepared for all outcomes.”
