Our specialized services focus on added value: we identify market and clients’ needs and offer comprehensive logistics solutions.
SETRAM was founded in 1982 by a group of highly experienced professionals in the field of automotive logistics. Its goal was to fulfill the needs of a growing market and of the new production facilities being implemented in Spain.
Partners Daniel Tarragona and Antonio Lamúa together with STVA in France and Ambrosetti Autologistics in Italy, both established businesses with a long track record in their respective countries, participated in the foundation.
Since its early beginnings the company operated in multi-modal projects, transporting Seat vehicles – a Fiat’s subsidiary back then – to the French border with a fleet of 12 car carrier trucks. From there they were loaded into a train bounded to Italy.
National and international expansion came soon, as did investment in logistic compounds, in order to ensure the presence in every step of the supply chain process of the finished vehicle.
In 1988, the firm built the first car terminal in the Port of Barcelona, where it still provides handling services. The firm was also a pioneer in confidential transport by means of closed car carrier trucks.
Setrampark Catalunya was founded in 1988 by a group of professionals linked to car dealerships of different brands. Since 1995, SETRAM is the reference shareholder. It manages the compound after its name, located in Santa Perpètua de Mogoda, 15 km from Barcelona. Its 180,000 m² service car dealers, car rental and renting companies. It incorporates state-of-the-art technology in vehicle treatment and conditioning.
Stockauto was founded in 1992. It specializes in the vehicle management process, from the moment vehicles leave the assembly line, through shipment to the car dealers or logistic facilities, train loading and unloading, and auxiliary service provision to car dealers.

Depsa was founded in 2003 to promote the construction of high-performance logistic port facilities. It owns the multi-storey car park EVV3 in the Port of Barcelona.
