CEE markets a corner stone for Xpediator
Xpediator has been establishing long-term connections across the Central and Eastern European (“CEE”) countries since the early beginnings of Delamode over 30 years ago.
From that point onwards, it has been a key area of operations and today, the Group has over 1,000 employees working across 8 CEE markets from 38 offices and logistics centres.
In 2019 the CEE markets accounted for £123.5 million, being 58.0% of the Group’s total revenues of £213.2 million
The extensive knowledge and experience accumulated, as a western operator specialising in these countries, is hard to replicate and represents a unique offering to Xpediator’s customer base of over 14,000 companies, many of whom are keen to access these fast-growing markets.
It is no secret that the CEE countries are growing faster than the rest of Europe and over the last 10 years GDP growth rates have been consistently higher. Romania in particular, has experienced rapid and consistent growth and is the CEE market where Xpediator has its largest presence, offering not only freight forwarding and logistic services but also fuel cards and a domestic 24 hour pallet service to any location throughout the country.
Being a UK headquartered freight management company with a significant presence and knowledge of the CEE markets is an unusual combination and has enabled the Group to provide transport services between western and eastern Europe that are hard to match. This is an important commercial advantage and the Group continues to expand and invest across the CEE markets in order to maintain this valuable lead.
