Why open a transport company in Romania?


The current economic climate is highly favorable for the growth of the transport sector. Globalization, the emergence of new economies, and more recently the global pandemic, have increased the need for transport services across the whole economy. Companies such as restaurants, online stores, import-export businesses and large retailers rely on efficient goods transport and demand for this is now higher than ever. Because of this, opening a goods transport business in Romania can be a very profitable venture, as tax and insurance costs are comparatively low. This situation is likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future.


As in the case of any business opened in Romania, the first hop you have to pass is obtaining the necessary authorizations for the transport of goods and submitting the documentation related to the establishment of a company. The first thing you will have to do is submit an application for obtaining a transport license from the Romanian Road Authority. Of course, you will also have to submit the necessary documentation for the establishment of the actual company at the National Trade Registry Office and request the assignment of the VAT number to the local tax agency.

In order to simplify this process, we will take care of submitting all these documents, as well as obtaining the necessary approvals for carrying out the activity. After completing these procedures, your company will be able to carry out its activity normally.

Purchase of vehicles

The next step is, of course, the purchase of the trucks, trailers or vans with which you will transport the goods. In this phase, it is very important to carefully analyze your goals and those of the company and make the purchases according to the nature of the activity you are going to carry out.

We will help you with their registration and obtaining licenses when necessary.

Staff recruitment

A transport business's success relies heavily on the quality of its personnel. An experienced driver is a highly valuable asset, as they will drive with caution and anticipate potential issues, helping to prevent delays, accidents and, in some cases, repair any issues that arise on the route.

We will assist you in the staff selection process, so you will work with competent employees who will save you both time and money in the long term.
