THIS IS OUR STORY
The start of EuropaTrans Ltd.
The first transport vehicle, A Yellow-Range Mercedes transporter, of Ilia Vlashki als owner of his new company EuropaTrans Ltd. in 1998. Soon a second slightly larger transporter was needed! This was the beginning of his success. Ilia Vlashki is a skilled man who knows what he wants.
EuropaTrans Ltd. is a customer-centric organization looking to become one of the premier trucking companies on the Balkan peninsula with the head office in Bulgaria.
IIiya Vlashki began as a truck driver in the company SOMAT and served his employer for nearly 20 years. In the second halve of this period he start playing with the idea to start his own transport business. To be a employee, he was convinced that this is not the thing he wants to practice his entire life. So he bought two cargo cadies and with help of a few friends he started two way express deliveries form Bulgaria to Germany.
In the beginning (1998) he was one of the drivers in his own new small cargo company. Very quick he understood that he has to concentrate on acquisition finding new clients to increase the his clientele. The textile industry started booming in Bulgaria and Iliya Vlashki noticed and stepped on the right moment in the textile transport as added market segment. The company started with purchasing 5 new trucks equipped with hangers for transporting Clothing. In the next three years Europa Trans became the biggest transport company for textile in Bulgaria. In 2002 the company started to expand again and decided to purchase a building and land in the region Pazardzhik. 2006 sq.m and 5512 sq.m land. From this period 2000—2008 the company concentrate on the customer needs to transporting goods to France.
By increasing the fleet, the need of a service station, truck wash, warehouse and petrol station was not a luxury but a necessary decision.
With the establishment of the station, a staff of 10 people is hired to perform the full service and technical maintenance of the company owned vehicles. During the last years the company is leaded by the changing economic situation and is seeking to be at more extensive market place by simply increasing the number of vehicles which are currently over 100 trucks.

For this purpose once a year a request is submitted to the Ministry of Transport and Information Technology. Depending on the number of vehicles and their degree of environmental grading a certain number of licenses are granted.
Iliya Vlashki understood that the transport and cargo market is continually changing, in general the world around us is changing rapidly and that it is necessary to fulfill the changing customer needs better. With his new concept he will focus on the future with new marketing strategies, sales innovation, durability and permanent education of the crew to create extraordinary business results.

Intelligent Cargo Concept
The advancements in technology and increased need for streamlined business operations demand new ways in cooperation. In recent years, the Internet of Things has been recognised to be an important future technology, providing new opportunities for enhancing the exchange of information and status updates on real-time regarding business operations.
Companies, markets and people depend on goods that reach them unharmed, safe and on time. But it is busy. Both on road and rail, as well as at airports and in seaports. EuropaTrans therefore invests intelligent systems that create order in the information flows. Only then can we ensure that goods arrive at their destination as efficiently as possible. With Intelligent Cargo the goods are precisely mapped. Account can also be taken of the specific rules and conditions surrounding the cargo - such as temperature and humidity. Intelligent Cargo introduces a new level of system integration.
This mainly concerns cooperation between the various logistics partners. Where these used to function as separate links, Intelligent Cargo makes it possible for them to work together as one chain. This is extremely cost-effective, cost savings of 20% are easily achievable!
Intelligent Cargo provides better support for track-and-trace activities in intermodal transport. The information about the route of a cargo is therefore available for transport by rail, road and sea. The advantages of full traceability throughout the chain are very large.
Europa Trans will focus in 2018-2019 on the development of “IntelliFreight” (IF) intelligent Cargo concept integrated new communication system and efficiency systems to reach the optimum in:
