YES, you can. Even though certain EU border controls have been temporarily instated, transport is still operating and therefore you can still list your deliveries on Clicktrans.com – both on national and international routes. And transport providers can still get transport jobs – new listings are appearing on the platform every day.
Of course, you have to be aware that temporary borders might sometimes mean that shipping might take a bit longer. Please, bear in mind that this is due to safety reasons and is intended to keep us all healthy and COVID-19-free.

Of course, the situation can change rapidly, but we’re monitoring it regularly and will adjust Clicktrans’ actions as needed to keep our customers and transport providers safe and the platform operating even in these difficult times.
It’s safest to order transportation online, where you have no contact with other people, who might be possible carriers of COVID19. You can list your delivery on Clicktrans.com without leaving your home – and for free! Transport providers will quote on your listing and you’ll be able to choose which one suits you best. The transport provider will be able to pick up the delivery from the place of your choosing e.g. from your house.
