Welcome to ESTA, the leading European association for the abnormal road transport and mobile crane rental industry.
We represent national trade associations whose members are mobile crane and access platform, rental and abnormal road transport companies.
Individual companies can become special members if there is no appropriate national association from their country.
ESTA also welcomes affiliate members from relevant clients, government departments, regulatory bodies, service companies and all organisations active in our markets.
In addition, ESTA has recently created the category of “Supporter” for companies that are members of their ESTA’s national associations but who want to become more directly involved in ESTA’s work.
Spanish transport authorities have backed down in their attempts to enforce changes in the country’s exceptional transport regulations that discriminated against international hauliers.
The move follows a series of complaints made to the European Commission and the Spanish government from ESTA, the International Road Transport Union (IRU) and a host of national trade bodies. Go to ESTA News for the full story.
A meeting of ESTA’s ECOL Working Group on May 15 has agreed a date to trial the project – February 1, 2018. ESTA has also established the ECOL Foundation, the body that will have the job of supervising and monitoring the system of education, examination and maintenance. Go to ESTA News for the full story.
Following their successful conference, ESTA and FEM met VDMA Power Systems in April to discuss safety and developing new best practice guidelines. Also, the International Crane Stakeholder Assembly - whose members include both ESTA and FEM - is planning to produce a special guidance paper on standards for access roads and hard stands during the erection of on-shore wind turbines.

Søren Jansen is to step down from the post of ESTA Director at the end of June. ESTA Secretary Ton Klijn will take over until the appointment of a new director can be announced at ESTA’s autumn meeting in Krakow, Poland. Go to ESTA News for the full story.
