The pulse of the European Union’s economic vitality beats through its vast networks of transportation. Enabling the free movement of individuals, services, and goods, the transport sector is the linchpin of the Single Market, facilitating job creation and economic growth. As this sector grows, so does the opportunity for transportation companies to expand and flourish within the EU. However, navigating the regulatory, logistical, and operational maze requires a nuanced understanding and strategic planning – this is precisely where we, at YeYe Agency, excel.
The Backbone of the European Economy
The transportation sector, a complex network involving around 1.2 million companies, is a cornerstone of the EU economy, employing approximately 10.5 million people. These companies are not just transporting goods and services; they are fueling industries, connecting markets, and driving integration across the continent. As your company looks to expand or break into new markets, the journey begins with understanding the intricate process of establishing a transportation business in the EU — that’s where we come in.
