ABOUT THE CLIENTÉmile Calberson started a business to ship goods by train in 1904.
He changed the name of the company to “Société des Transports Routiers Calberson” in 1920. In 1961, SCETA, a company owned by SNCF, took over the business. In 1996, private investors bought the company and split it into four parts: Groupage, Road, Logistics, and Overseas.
In 2006, the Group got stronger in Scandinavia, North America, Asia, and Australia by buying TNT Freight Management. The Group bought the IBM worldwide logistics activity monitoring platform in 2008. This led to Supply Chain Optimization, GEODIS's fifth line of business.
In 2009, GEODIS bought two of Giraud International's four divisions: the steel division and the Central and Eastern European zone.
In 2015, the Group made GEODIS the name for all of its brands. .
