About us

"Economical and unbeatably fast. The better alternative to the established system transport."
With this vision in his head, the company founder Thomas Paar began his new approach with Carpathian 13 years ago: quick, easy and high-quality transport solutions to and from Romania.

His success shows that he was right: customers, who until now had had to come to terms with customs obstacles, inflexible departures and system transports with significant risks, such as goods damage, loss and delivery delay, appreciated the benefits of solely direct trade a great deal. Eighty percent of our initial customers are still with us and have never regretted choosing "simplydirect".

Goals for our organisation and principles that guide our actions.
