1990   Immediately after the political change in Romania, Szep Alexandru sets up his first business, in transporting goods, a field of activity he is familiar to, and buys his first second hand truck, an IFA L50 W, and working independently, as a natural person. During the period of time when he was both owner and driver, he gained the respect and appreciation of many customers for correctness/ honesty, punctuality and the respect shown to his clients.

1992   He buys a new truck, this time a new one, a “STAR”1142 from the ex- factory “Jeletz” in Poland.   
1993   According to the regulations he sets up a private company S.C. Expres Transport S.R.L.

Another second hand truck with a trailer (a MAN 361) is acquired.
Szep Zoltan, his eldest son, and later his brother, Szep Alexandru join the business.
Even from the beginning his wife, Szep Ileana, is the dispatcher and she is also in charge with the bookkeeping. She  soon gains experience in the international transportation of goods.


Because of the low budget, when EURO2 auto vehicles are imposed, he tries to negotiate with truck producers and dealers. The negotiations fail because the producers or dealers ask for  bank bonds, especially because they distrust Romanian partners.
He finds support in AD. VAN WIJK, a Dutch businessman, who has also set up a transportation company in Cluj. The same year the first  DAF XF truck with a semi-trailer is acquired.
Faithful to its principles, S.C. Expres Transport S.R.L. grows, in spite of the difficulties encountered at the beginning, acquiring new trucks every year.

2002   The company acquires building ground for an own garage, in Pecica.
2003   The building of the new garage is completed and a work point is opened.

Four EURO5 trucks are bough, among which a refrigerated van, to serve this segment of transport. Today, our company collaborates with big companies, shipping goods mainly on the route Romania - Italy. It  owns a fleet 19  DAF trucks and all types  of trailers and best qualified drivers.
