One of the best industries to explore at the moment is the Montenegro transporting and storage industry, or simply the logistics sector.

Our lawyers in Montenegro can help with the registration of a transporting and storage business.

Registering a logistics business in Montenegro

Foreign investors who want to open companies in the transporting and storage sector in Montenegro are required to register one of the business forms available under the Company Law in this country. Given the fact that a transporting and storage company can be a medium or a large-sized enterprise, the limited liability company is recommended.

Once the company is registered with the Trade Registrar, a few more steps need to be completed before starting the operations. These steps imply:

  • -          registering with the Customs authorities, as most companies offer international transport of goods;
  • -          acquiring the fleet of trucks and registering them with the authorities;
  • -          applying for special licenses depending on the types of goods transported or stored;
  • -          hire specialized personnel – most truck drivers have TIR carnets which allow them to operate such vehicles.
