Passionate player in logistics since 1967

Experienced logistics since 1967

Eutraco started in 1967 as a transport company in Roeselare.
From a small family business, it quickly became a driven and dynamic logistics player. Under the successful leadership of the Lievens family, and later by grandson Bart Pattyn, the company has evolved into a national and international leader in a wide range of logistics solutions.

Name with reputation
With more than 50 years of experience, the values and standards of the family business are clearly present. The unchangeable name and colours are proof of this. Professional pride and passion for the client are also core values that have been fixed from the beginning.

Responding to the future
This sense of tradition goes hand-in-hand with a proactive vision on the future. Eutraco has become a strong partner for long-lasting and fruitful collaborations with international relations. A flexible response to changing needs and necessities lies in the DNA of the company and is the real strength of success.
