The history of our company dates back to 1995 when Krzysztof Strzała – the current owner of Anika Trans – started a transportation company with his brother. Thanks to their joint efforts, they managed to buy a three-axle Jelcz truck and a refrigerated trailer. They started their operation from transporting meat from Poland to Russia, mainly to St. Petersburg and Moscow.
Just a year later, Krzysztof Strzała started his own transportation company. In 1998 Anika Trans was brought to life in the form of a civil partnership. The first years of our existence were characterised by very dynamic development: at first, we had just five vehicles, in 2000 the number grew to 7, in 2004 it was already 20, and in 2008 we had 28 of them.
During that time, we were mostly focused on transportation of frozen goods between the European Union and Russia. In our peak period we carried out over 600 cargo runs per year.
In 2009, the Russian Federation started implementing its aggressive foreign policy regarding Polish transportation companies by limiting the number of operating permits. From that point on we decided that the best course of action would be to ensure geographic diversification of our operations, limiting the company’s growth and maximising the efficiency of our fleet.
