06.05.2021: Uncertain conditions for international transport companies in Romania

Several international transport companies in Romania including our local subsidiary, Kim Johansen SRL, have been met with significant financial demands from local authorities.

The key issue is that the authorities - with no warning and retrospectively for five years - demand taxation of tax-free diets already paid to the drivers on top of their ordinary and taxed salary. If the authorities maintain this demand, Kim Johansen SRL will have to pay the same amount of money twice.

We, and several local transport organizations, have protested, and our Romanian subsidiary has - in line with other companies - brought the case before a Romanian court.

Status right now is that the issue has been raised politically. A working group, including authorities and transport organizations, are now trying to find a fair and transparent regulation and a solution to the specific cases.

Most recently - at the end of April - the local transport organization, UNTRR, has been publicly pushing for the working group to get started. Read about that here (Romanian language). Parallel to that the local authorities have annulled a similar tax decision in a case against another international transport company.

We are optimistic about the further development. However, as the case is not concluded and further contains political aspects, we cannot yet assess the outcome.

 

 

     
 

15.12.2020: Acquisition of part of Bring Trucking Slovakia

Kim Johansen International Transport Group expands with approx. 100 trucks including drivers and a fully developed, well-functioning operational setup in Slovakia.
That is the result of a positive acquisition from Bring Trucking.
The location in Slovakia fits well with our existing business, and with the acquisition, we strengthen our position in the European market. Size and flexibility will ensure that we also in the future will be an attractive choice for our customers.
In addition, we will continue some of Bring Trucking’s activities for the Bring Group.
The acquisition is positive in several ways. In the short term we will increase our business, and in the longer term, we are strengthening our European presence and our ability to grow, act flexible and attract qualified employees. More generally we’ll also better adapt to the coming changes in the European transport regulation.

For more information, please contact COO John Lauritzen.
