Transformation of ICOM transport a.s.
Thanks to the availability of the most modern fleet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, we are able to offer our clients high culture of everyday travel services. Currently, the transport group ICOM transport operates 800 buses, 300 sets of trucks, and employs 1,800 workers. Moreover, it offers an authorized Mercedes-Benz service center, a network of gas stations, emission measuring services and vehicle washing stations.
In freight transport, our team offers partners our know-how and tailor-made, effective, problem-free transport solutions. A 24-hour availability of vehicles in operation or purchase of 100 vehicles conforming to special shipping requirements are no exception. We are always able to accurately inform our business partners of the location of individual vehicles.
Moreover, as a large transport company, ICOM transport conducts a broad range of socially beneficial activities targeted not only on its own employees, but also all the about 40 million passengers who use the company´s buses annually. A clear confirmation of the many years of the company´s socially responsible approach is, for example, the Award of the Governor of the Vysočina Region in appreciation of the company´s efforts and organization to integrate social, environmental, ethical, and human-rights interests into its operations.
ICOM transport also puts great emphasis on ecology, where its most important activity focuses on constant updating and upgrading of its vehicle fleet. The result is that most of the company´s vehicles meet the strictest emission standard EURO 6, which reduces emissions of nitrogen oxides and solid particles by up to 200 tons and reduces consumption by approximately 1,600 tons of Diesel. In addition, ICOM transport concentrates on renewable sources, investments into energy-saving lighting and heating, responsible sorting of plastics, paper, batteries, toners, and other materials as well as activities.
