About Us

At Targa, we're on a mission to transform the cross-border B2B vehicle market.

As an international trader of new vehicles, we serve the needs of our customers, including vehicle dealers, importers, and distributors around the world by providing them access to differentiated inventory and pricing not available in their domestic markets. For our supply partners, we offer a unique channel to tap into global demand in fast-growing emerging markets, as well as an additional source of liquidity for unsold or overstock vehicle inventory.

For those who thrive in an entrepreneurial environment, we offer a platform for growth, where initiative and ideas are not only valued, but strongly encouraged, unrestricted by hierarchy or bureaucracy.

We're growing internationally and are always looking for amazing talent. If this sounds like the right place for you, please reach out to us, or apply using the form below!
