First prize for Gosselin Logistics, Brucargo

Brucargo’s logistics partners have been working with the slot booking app since 2018. This technology enables users to avoid long waits at the warehouses and makes better, more transparent scheduling possible. Gosselin Logistics won the prize for best user of the app in 2020. Quite an achievement!

 

What is Gosselin Logistics’ secret for these great results?

Martine Vermoesen: “Gosselin made the app part of its daily operations. We started by defining the short- and medium-term goals that were feasible for our organization. We focused on our import flows first, and integrated best practices into our export flows. This step-by-step approach allowed our people to ease into it, and gradually become more familiar with the new process. This eventually increased the entire team’s commitment.”

Did you have to make changes to your internal processes?

Martine: “The app became a recurring theme during our weekly team meetings. By getting the entire team involved, we created internal awareness for the application. We also stressed how important it is in helping us achieve our company goals, one of which is going paperless.”

What kinds of advantages does the app offer?

Martine: “The reduction in waiting times is the biggest advantage. This has a direct impact on our operational and office teams. In terms of external advantages, it allows us to spend more time on customer service, better communication and improved workflows.”

Pasec Port zekert historisch schip

Zeg niet zomaar boot tegen de Westhinder III. Dit lichtschip fungeerde vanaf 1864 als richtingsaanwijzer voor de schepen zoals de verkeersborden dat voor auto’s doen. Met lichtsignalen en een misthoorn hielp het schippers navigeren langs zandbanken en kliffen. Ondertussen met pensioen en gered van de schroothoop is de Westhinder naar haar laatste kaai gevaren en verankerd met de hulp van Pasec Port, Gosselin .
