The largest road haulage and logistics company in the Israeli market. The group engages in various types of road haulage, earth moving and mining, cranes and heavy lift, oversize loads and heavy haulage, air cargo terminal operations and logistics services as well as importing and servicing DAF, Kenworth and Isuzu trucks and VDL buses.

Taavura provided heavy haulage and installation engineering services to the Israeli authorities during the construction of the Separation Wall. Company cranes were documented installing concrete slabs as part of the wall apparatus near the Palestinian town of Abu Dis and in the Shuafat refugee camp in occupied East Jerusalem. Liebherr heavy construction machinery imported to Israel by Tashtiot, a division of Taavura, was used in the construction of the Wall on the land of the Palestinian village of Ni'lin.

The company also participated in the construction of two bridges in the West Bank, one above Road 1 near the settlement industrial zone of Mishor Adumim and the other as part of Road 20/4 above Road 433. Company trucks transported extra-large concrete beans to the construction sites and company cranes lifted and installed them in place.

The company transports extremely heavy and oversize cargo for the Israel army. The company transported aircrafts and watercrafts and participated in a drill of the Israeli army as a tanks' transporter. During the attack on Gaza in November 2012 (also known as Pillar of Defense operation), the company transported tanks to the front lines.

Taavura hauled parts of Herrenknecht tunneling machinery form the port to construction site of the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem new fast train line. The fast train crosses the Green Line into occupied Palestinian territory.

The Tashtit Division is also the exclusive importer of DAF Trucks to Israel. Tashtit provides repair and maintenance service through a network of authorized DAF garages, three of them are located in the occupied Palestinian territory. Y. Tzarfati Car and Metal Services is located in the Mishor Adumim settlement industrial zone, Friends Garage P.H. in the settlement neighborhood of Neve Yaakov in occupied East Jerusalem and S. Haddad Garages in the settlement industrial zone of Atarot. Through its 50% share in UTI (Universal Trucks Israel), the company imports and distributes Isuzu trucks. Y. Tzarfati Car and Metal Services and S. Haddad Garages also function as UTI’s Isuzu licensed service centers.

In the field of public transportation, company’s subsidiary, Egged-Taavura operates dozens of bus lines in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem, serving more than 20 Israeli settlements. Company bus lines pass through the following settlements: Elon Moreh, Itamar, Kfar Tapuach, Eli, Rechelim, Shilo, Ma’ale Levona, ImmanuelKedumim, Karnei Shomron, Ariel, Shvut Rachel, Ofra, Sha’ar Binyamin industrial zone, Geva Binyamin (Adam), Talmon A & B, Nahliel, Dolev, Nili, Na’ale and Pisgat Zeev. Egged-Taavura operates service points in the Mishor Adumim settlement industrial zone, in Pisgat Zeev and in Michmash Junction, all located beyond the Green Line.

In the logistics sector, Taavura owns Maman Cargo Terminals and Handling, which supplies management and operation services to cargo terminals in Israel. Maman's predominance in the cargo services field, especially its terminal at Ben Gurion Airport, makes it a major beneficiary from the Israeli occupation and from the joint custom envelope - designed in the Oslo Accords. 'Quality and Security reasons' in conjunction with economic and political justifications create a Palestinian captive market for Israeli and multinational companies. No other alternative for the import of certain goods and raw materials are available to Palestinian manufacturers and importers.  

Maman provides archive services through its subsidiaries Archive 2000 and Archive Jerusalem, which operate an archiving facility in Mishor Adumim settlement Industrial Zone.

Taavura's earth-moving division provided training to several Israeli army units, including an Engineering Corps unit stationed in the West Bank.
