Samat : a European-sized family business

Transporting hazardous substances is a challenge. Samat has been facing it every day for more than 40 years. Our tanks and containers criss-cross European roads to meet our customers’ expectations and provide them with bespoke services in terms of chemicals, hydrocarbons, air and liquid petroleum gases.
