Established in 1976, the European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Cranes (ESTA) is the unique European arm for trade associations representing mobile crane rental companies and abnormal road transport companies.
ESTA’s primary objective is to harmonise the rules and regulations across Europe for crane companies and hauliers, to represent this job activity in Europe, and to build the future for this industry.
Together with manufacturers, ESTA is therefore continuously striving to improve equipment with the aim of creating a safer working environment and improving the sector’s overall image. ESTA maintains an inter-European network of national associations, companies and manufacturers. It also enhances the exchange of information between ESTA members, allowing them to work together all over Europe.
ESTA currently unites 26 member associations and 38 affiliated members from 18 European countries, including IRU members.
