Our history

histoire des logos somatra


A story that begins in 1959

SOMATRA is a company that still retains its human touch. Created in 1959, it has gradually established itself as a reference in the international transport market. Based in Switzerland, the company has continued to keep pace with all the new technology available on the market so guaranteeing to meet its clients’ demands and offering at the same time increasingly attractive prices. Our expertise stems from our freight forwarding office in Bardonnex, our event logistics, not to mention SOMATRA’s specificity linked to the passion of its family management team: the horse-riding… ‘Great oaks from little acorns grow.”





Always willing to work side by side with its clients, SOMATRA has built its reputation on the quality of its services and its capacity to answer to the most delicate missions like the transport of medical emergencies, turnkey factories, or toxic products. Another strong point of the company that made the history of SOMATRA: its comprehensive services. SOMATRA is more than just a carrier, it is a customs facility, it is an administrative support, it is the assembly of your deliveries on site but it is above all a qualified and motivated team at your disposal.
