About us

We are a team of no-nonsense experienced entrepreneurs whose heart beats for logistics automation. We are an independent turnkey system integrator and lifecycle services partner teaming up with industry leading suppliers and innovators of tomorrow.

We live by three brand promises:

  1. We always provide our customers with an independent view in our solutions. They will always be able to count on our honesty. We’re not in it for the “one-shot” deals
  2. We simply provide the best lifecycle services not only because we have the best service engineers in house, but because we think and act as one team
  3. If you buy from E’Log Automation, you buy from a partner for life

Our story of 113 years of experience

Having been part of the logistics and supply chain business for well over several decades, we have seen intralogistics throughout Europe evolve rapidly. With continuous investments in standardization of mechanical and electrical components and especially in software, the tendency to automate has become increasingly less of a “big step” for small and medium sized companies.

My starting point for E’Log Automation was clear: how to integrate – in the most standardised way possible – existing and innovative technologies that are sufficiently modular for small and medium-sized projects. All of this coupled with the right software and a very professional after-sales service. E’Log Automation embodies all this.

Filling the pipeline is the easier part, defining project content and developing a solution are challenges which require both analytical skills and experience. These aspects are the key metrics for business development. At E’Log Automation, I will handle this area in order to guarantee customer success.

Patrick Hennebert

Co-Founder, Business Development

Project Execution is fundamentally about trust. Of course, you must deal professionally with all contractual and legal obligations and safety must be paramount in everything. But on top of that, your word is your bond, both in your relationship with the customer and with your suppliers and colleagues.

Marc Guns

Customer service for us means blending our vast experience and open mindset with the processes, demands and needs of our customers, striving to exceed their expectations.
