Sevatas's market leading position is built on a foundation of skills and knowledge combined with experience over many years with many clients and their operations in Europe and further afield.

As we believe that more can be achieved through collaborative working and sharing of knowledge, we offer this section as a resource where you can find documents and links to useful information relevant to reducing damages and removing inefficient costs.

At the forefront of our sector, we work with our clients to explore innovative ways to reduce damages and improve claims handling. We’ve also taken the lead with sector groups like the European Association of Vehicle Logistics (ECG) in developing harmonised standards for vehicle handling and damage recording.

As a recognised leader in claims, audits and vehicle inspections in Europe, we provide many representative bodies, trade magazines and event organisers with expert opinion through written materials or presenters at industry events.

We have also been topic speakers at the Automotive Logistics Europe Conferences and the Logistics Leaders Congress and European Summits. At these events we further highlight the importance of damage control and cost reduction as key areas of efficient supply chain management.

We interact with the widest range of stakeholders and businesses. These include clients and their distribution networks, sector suppliers, industry associations and the media.
