I was looking for quotes and it seems to offer only Bulgaria Greece and Romania now...am I missing something or they decided to limit their business to neighboring countries?

I imagine the competition internationally is too strong - more money to be made in the last mile where they can be a feeder in to other networks

Their 10% bulgarian vat and bulgarian drivers were enough for competitiveness without investing much into business expansion. ...of course if the rest of the competitors are not registered at the Caymans and hire illegals without contract.

Brexit may had changed the whole tax and regulations frame they were subject.

We are still in the EU, and will be for some time yet, so nothing has changed.
As far as I am aware Easy2Buy. bg still use Econt to transport goods from London to Sofia, and I assume the Ekont transport doesn't go to the UK empty, so I suggest you ask your local office.

Not related (or probably) the 1st bigger cargo comoany of south korea is now bankrupt...ships are not allowed in China and other countries... this is the 7th bigger cargo company in the world.

Loads of electronic components are made in Korea as well Chinese products were trasported by this company.

Consider most of led screens are manufactured in South Korea by Samsung and then fitted in many other big and smaller brands frames.

Not related at all, so why post?
Where is the mod? This forum is a mess.

Well is releted...logistic is failing everywhere...with countless airplanes, trains, trucks, ships parked.

Mods? To small traffic and post to even bother to moderate.

Probably because the most part of the visitors of this forum remember it exists when they need something...knock knock solve my problems...thinking this place is a sort of free customer service.
Same people that is packing their things and moving back to Britain..

I do not wonder why
