Begin operations13 December 1993
The company commenced its activities on September 18th, 1993. The political and economic transformation of the times was advantageous in terms of forming one’s own business. Despite the difficult beginnings, as in the first year, our company had at its disposal just a single truck, we were able to spread our wings quite quickly. Thanks to smart management and the employment of an experienced forwarding team and multiple drivers, our company was able to soon expand its activity by several new vehicles.
Heavy weight18 September 2001
Thanks to the ever-improving financial standing of Coltrans, the management reached the decision to purchase new types of trucks. Beside medium-weight trucks, beginning in September 2001, our company expanded its fleet by several tractor trucks along with trailers. This allowed us to gain many new customers, and also to strengthen our position in the transport market.
New company seat18 September 2007
The purchase of a high number of new vehicles, and the employment of several new people, brought with itself rapid expansion of Coltrans. The management was forced to purchase new land for the trucks, and in addition – to construct a new company headquarters, where our offices are found to this day. Since the moment of the move, meaning, from September 18th, 2007, much has changed at our offices. The prime change is a new storey, being the result of the employment of new forwarding specialists and the expansion of our activity along with the purchase of new trucks. Together with the move to the new headquarters, our company had also undergone a true computing revolution. The management invested in new hardware and software that simplified the work of our forwarders and other employees. The data flow between the individual departments also improved. A GPS system was installed to monitor our vehicle fleet.
