Each country of the European Union has its own popular and unique exchange house
We have considered exchanges of cargo road transport. There are almost two dozen the most famous road transportation exchanges in Ukraine now, which include not only domestic resources, but also resources of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus.

Lardi trans.com, Della.ua Trans.eu, Degruz.com, Cargo.lt are the most famous among users.
Forwarding companies are the main users of the transportation exchanges services.
According to the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, the largest export regions of Ukraine are Dnipropetrovsk, Transcarpathian, Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa, Poltava, Kharkiv regions and Kyiv; 64% of the cargo is transported by road.
This division is due to geographical location. The regions with frontiers with the state border have an advantageous geographical position, so the Transcarpathian region borders with Hungary, Slovakia, Romania; Chernivtsi region - with Romania; Lviv and Volyn regions - with Poland; Zhytomyr, Chernigiv, Kyiv regions with - the Republic of Belarus, in the Odessa region there are ports and the border with Moldova; the Kharkiv region has frontiers the Russian Federation.
It would be useful to compare the declared capabilities, the number of registered users, the cost for placing bids, the security level, the geographical scope and the digital possibilities of the exchanges to determine the best of them to work with.
The main transportation exchanges include:
Trans.eu. Over 36 200 companies use this platform daily. The service package costs EUR 828 per year. Companies that do not use Trans.eu yet are provided with 7 days period of full access to decide on further use.
