Recently, the cargo transport market has been impacted by the adverse effects of external forces. Nevertheless, road cargo transportation has kept its leading positions in the segment. High volumes of freight transportation by road are caused by several factors. Trucks can make efficient deliveries 24 hours a day regardless of airport, railway, and port operating schedules. Truck usage allows flexible routing and cargo tracing with data from modern GPS navigation systems and GLONASS. In case of short-distance goods delivery, transportation by trucks minimizes financial costs. AsstrA helps its clients enjoy all the advantages of intercity and international road freight transportation. For over 20 years our specialists have developed optimal routes in Europe, the Baltics, the Balkans and Central Asia. They take into consideration the individual needs of clients and provide transportation in strict conformity with agreed terms at the best prices.

Transportation of certain goods can be hazardous to truck, driver and, in some cases, others on the road. Hence this transportation requires adherence to special rules.

Obtaining a permit and route approval are required in case of road transportation of oversized goods.
