Association of Estonian International Road Carriers (ERAA). The ERAA is a voluntary association of entrepreneurs who provide road transport. The ERAA was founded on 30 October 1991 in Tallinn. Since May 1992, the ERAA has been a full member of the International Road Transport Union (IRU). The objective of the union is to develop road transport as a profession and to protect the rights and interests of its members.
The International Road Transport Union was founded in 1948 in Geneva. Its objective at the time was to unify organisations providing road transport that were operating disparately. Estonia is represented in the IRU by the Association of Estonian International Road Carriers (ERAA). The most important task of the International Road Transport Union is to follow jointly adopted operation principles to improve international road transport.
