By 2025, Express Trans plans to conquer all European markets. The company is already present on many of them, thus in recent years, the company’s operations have been harmonised with EU directives and standards. That’s why the company’s deputy CEO Ivo Modić is proud to point out here that professionalism is the word that defines its relations with clients.

Express Trans has 22 years of experience in the goods transport sector. Which standards form the basis of your relations with clients?

– Our company was established in 1993, with a clear vision of becoming a leader in the transport sector in Serbia and Europe. The main goal we set back then was to build an effective business system and in parallel raise the quality of the service we provide to our clients.

There is no doubt that Express Trans today is synonymous with an experienced, reliable and professional partner, which can be relied upon when it comes to the most complex operational demands. Our efforts in recent years have been directed towards completely harmonising the company’s operations with the directives and standards of the European Union – which we have done.

If I had to choose one word with which I would define our relationship with our clients that would certainly be professionalism.

Your operations adhere to European procedures in the transport sector. What are your priorities in this regard?

– We monitor the demands of our clients, but also the environmental standards prescribed by national and European legislation. More than 85 per cent of our fleet satisfies the latest EURO 6 standard for engines. In accordance with the strategic plan for the development of our company, this year we will purchase 20 new EURO 6 vehicles and 20 new trailers. Our expert teams for operational activities and fleet organisation work exclusively with respect for the procedures regarding technical and exploitation standards harmonised at the level of the EU.

With commercial space of over 13 thousand square metres and more than 70 modern trucks, you are today able to offer your customers the broadest possible logistics and transport services. What are the next steps in Express Trans’s development?

– Last year we opened a company in Slovenia and we currently have 20 new vehicles for auto transport. The primary activity in Slovenia is auto logistics, and in order to meet all the demands of our clients we have invested a total of over four million euros, and we won’t stop there. Our strategic aim for the period up to the year 2025 is to expand the company’s activities to all markets in Europe and support our biggest partner Milsped.

This year we completed construction of our new headquarters in Novi Sad and invested in the latest technology and software solutions for monitoring and tracking vehicles. We are preparing to develop a new information system and digital services that will provide our clients with a completely new experience when it comes to goods transportation. Express Trans currently employs more than a hundred people and we have a constant need to engage new workers.

Express Trans is the largest partner of the Milšped Group, and as such we strive to support our partner on all markets. By respecting the three-dimensional concept of sustainable development that prioritises people, the economy and the environment, through the implementation of European standards in the field of environmental protection and our ethical operations, we strive to provide our clients with the best service on the EU market.
