FAQ

What does MJ SPED s.r.o. deal with?

MJ SPED deals with road and rail freight transport. We have been specializing in road freight transport to/from the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania for over 26 years. Today, we are equally strong in the field of transporting consignments within the European Union member states. We offer less than truckload and full truckload transports. Our employees, constantly at your disposal, will be happy to give you more information.

Which countries does MJ SPED prefer within the EU?

MJ SPED focuses mainly on freight transport to/from Italy, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania. Lines to/from the Czech Republic, Germany and the Baltic region are also a matter of course. However, we transport less than truckload and full truckload consignments to all corners of the EU for our partners.

What do transportation costs depend on in the case of freight transport to/from the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus or the other countries in the region?

In the case of freight transport within the Eastern European and Asian regions, the price does not depend only on the distance as in the case of freight transport within the EU. The calculation of the transportation costs is influenced also by border crossing points and the waiting times at them, bureaucracy and related costs, and even on the planning of shipments for the way back – which are mostly far away from the place of delivery of the goods. For the various regions, the prices of full truckload consignments are influenced by several factors, such as the value and type of the goods (high-value goods, ADR, …), transport capacities (MEGA trailer, 120 cbm vehicle, FRIGO, …), or seasonality. You can have the transportation costs of your goods calculated here.

How long does it approximately take to deliver goods to major cities in Eastern Europe and Asia?

Delivery to non-EU countries directly depends on the situation at the border crossing points and on the roads. (winter months) In general, the following delivery times apply for full truckload consignments from our region:

What requirements does a company need to meet to export/import goods to/from third countries (non-EU countries)?

Each legal entity that wants to export/import goods to/from third countries (non-EU countries) must be registered and must have a valid EORI number. This number serves as a common reference number when dealing with customs authorities all over the Community and for information exchange between customs authorities and other authorities. To ensure the uniqueness of the EORI numbers, a single number is used for each individual. To facilitate administration, the EORI number is identical to the VATIN number. For more information about this system, please refer to www.eori.eu.

Consequently, if an exporter does not have his own employee to handle customs declarations, he has to enter into an agency agreement with a provider of such services, who will then handle all the necessary tasks (the export/import itself) on behalf of the client with the customs authorities. Our company provides these services to the clients, and not only in the territory of the Slovak Republic. We will be happy to give you more information about the further necessary steps and documents, such as the various certificates, for your goods, personally or over the phone, free of charge.

What additional services does MJ SPED s.r.o. provide to its clients?

The aim of our company is to cover the whole process of freight transport. When we give assistance to the client all through the process of sending goods, we save time for him and spare him from communication with other entities. Therefore, besides the freight transport itself, we manage our clients’ customs clearance process, too. We are constantly widening the portfolio of our partners who help us maximize the satisfaction of our clients’ needs. We also offer the possibility of additional insurance of the goods at favourable rates (by customizing the consignment insurance) and the possibility to store the consignments. Daily reporting about the movement of the consignment, whether over the phone, in a text message, or by e-mail, is another additional service we offer. In this way, our clients are informed and can inform their partners or manage the tasks which are necessary within the process of delivering the goods. We will be happy to give you more detailed information about the services we offer.
