Top Track 250

This Dartford-based logistics firm worked through the night in the early stages of the pandemic to deliver 300 beds to the Nightingale hospital at London’s Excel centre. It also set up a team dedicated to delivering PPE. Founded more than 50 years ago, Europa makes 450,000 shipments a year to 160 countries. Under managing director Andrew Baxter, 45, in June it opened a £60m warehouse in Corby. Sales grew to £205m last year.
