History / Shareholding

STVA, Société de Transports de Véhicules Automobiles, was founded on 25 October 1950 with its initial task being the transport of vehicles by rail.

65 years later, STVA has become one of the leaders in finished vehicle logistics in Europe and has a complete network of resources: storage compounds, multi-modal terminals, workshops, car trucks and specialised car railwagons.

This international development took place step by step, via progressive controlled expansion across Europe and the development of expertises in all the fields of distribution logistics for finished vehicles. In 2015, STVA Group has decided to work under one single brand : STVA, throughout Europe, to reinforce its visibility on the market and to gather all the teams.
