The main business activities of LUKAADA TRANS is road transport. The company was established in 2008 as a transportation company for domestic and foreign goods. It operates a fleet of 56 registered vehicles, for transport within territory of the Republic of North Macedonia, as well as other Balkan and EU countries, including Italy, Nederland, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Slovenia.

The Company purchased 3 new VOLVO trucks that fulfill the EURO 6 norm for heavy-duty diesel engines: 3 trailers for transportation of various types of goods and one trailer with a cooling system. Three of the old EUR 5 and 3 trucks were scrapped. 

With this investment, Lukaada Trans has improved the quality of its transport services, and can more easily satisfy EU and international clients’ standards for transport of goods, decrease harmful emissions, as well as improve the H&S standards for the employed drivers due to greater reliability, comfort and convenience on long-haul trips.

The company received free technical assistance to optimize its investment project and 15% grant cash-back after the successful project verification, funded by the European Union.  The company now meets a wide variety of standards including:
