Specialist part and full load operator, Continental Cargo Carriers (CCC) has completed the relocation of its Ramsgate sales and operations team to Dartford.

This is the first of a series of developments the business is announcing following its acquisition by leading logistics operator Europa Worldwide Group last year.

Established in 1973, (but whose history dates back to 1903) Continental Cargo Carriers is one of the biggest players on the roll-on roll-off market between Europe and the UK, delivering full and part load consignments daily. CCC operates a fleet of 270 trailers, runs a 4000 m2 warehouse and employs over 100 people in Belgium and the UK.

CCC’s UK team is now based in Europa’s £30m headquarters in Dartford, but CCC is a totally separate operation. Since the acquisition, as well as the office move there has been other investments by Europa such additional new IT. With CCC benefitting from Europa’s experienced 30 strong in-house IT and development team which is responsible for implementing a huge number of initiatives resulting in improved efficiencies across the business.

Marco Riccomini, Manager at CCC, who has been at the company for 30 years added “The move from Ramsgate has been seamless, with no glitches, including the IT link up with the Belgium office. We were able to lock the doors of the old office and walk into the new one and start work as normal.”

“It’s great being at the Europa site and having access to other specialist and colleagues in the Europa Road’s European transport team.”


Carlo Turner, General Manager at CCC added “It’s great to bring CCC to Europa Dartford and make them feel part of Europa Road, I have no doubt that working at Europa’s 1Hub facility will broaden awareness to the possibilities the acquisition brings to both organisations.”
