Are you interested to open your transport company in Slovakia? What are the requirements for transport company in Slovakia? Is it so simple to open? There is a difference in providing transport activity with truck up to 3,5 t per vehicle or above 3.5 t .
Vehicles up to 3,5 t
If you want to provide transport activity by vehicles up to 3,5 t , this activity is a free trade license. You do not need to apply for transport license. ( This could include simple transport of person, or goods, but not taxi service.)
Vehicles above 3,5 t
Regarding the transport license with vehicles above 3,5 t it is more complicated. Your vehicle must have a Slovak registration plate, related insurance contract for providing national truck transport or international transport. Then, you will need a responsible person for this national / international transport activity. This person shall be an internal employee of the company and shall have a certificate for national/ international transport. In case he is a foreigner, he shall have the Slovak residence.
You shall be ready to prove the rent contract where you will park your trucks and trailors.
Is it better to open a new one or purchase a ready made company? Both of the the possibilities have their advantages. Feel free to send us your questions.
