The network for the joint international transport of parcels and pallets EURODIS has welcomed the Greek express service Geniki Taxydromiki as a new partner.
“This brings the number of countries served by our network to 38,” says Jens Reibold, managing director of EURODIS.
“The family-run company serves not only Greece but also the Greek-speaking part of Cyprus for our customers.”
The new partner is headed by twin sisters Nadia and Eva Varzakakou, who have been in business for 20 years.
They took over the company from their father Panagiotis Varzakakos, who founded it in 1994.
“Geniki is active in our core business of combined freight, transporting parcel and pallet in one shipment, and meets all EURODIS processes and quality standards,” Reibold added.
“In addition, Geniki takes on hazardous goods in limited quantities, delivers both B2B and B2C shipments, and also has a whole range of interesting specialities.”
The company’s central hub and headquarters are located in Athens with regional hubs in Thessaloniki and five other locations.
In total, Geniki operates 330 stations in Greece and this number is expected to increase by 15 by the end of the year.
The company’s customer list includes Avon, German corporations Bayer, BMW and Bosch, sporting goods retailer Decathlon, DIY chain Praktiker, textile giant Inditex (Zara) and insurance group Ergo.
In the last four years, Geniki has increased its sales from 66 to 96 million euros and its gross profit from €8 to €12.4 million.
