History

Our company was founded in Geneva in the middle of the 19th century, coinciding with the age of industrialization and the expansion of the city. Our location in the heart of Europe and in the center of North/South flows of goods was a key factor that contributed to our rapid growth.

Sauvin Schmidt has witnessed many evolutions in the transportation sector in the past 150 years, from the invention of the automobile to intercontinental air travel.

Every advance has had its challenges, and our company prides itself on its ability to adapt to industry change and innovation, which has further enriched our expertise within the industry.

Sauvin Schmidt International became SSI in 2015. Our firm continues to expand its competence and its services of diverse distribution (processing, packing and sales point management).
