Gosselin and the silk road

With an investment of 5 trillion dollars, China will significantly expand its connectivity with the world over the coming 30 years. The infrastructure of roads, shipping and flight routes, and railroads will be undergoing enormous expansion. This last mode of transport is particularly worth (re)discovering.

One Belt, One Road (OBOR)

The One Belt One Road initiative is an unprecedented investment project designed to position China as the economic heart of the world. The investments don’t stop at the national borders, however. China also wants to start shipyards in around 60 countries spread throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The project was proposed in late 2013, and according to the latest figures (May 2017), around 50 billion dollars has already been invested. The largest tenders have yet to come, in other words. 

Gosselin and the silk road

Gosselin has been active on this route for over 20 years, with offices in the most important logistics hubs in China, and its own offices in Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Poland. Thanks to extensive contacts with local operators, we are applying our expertise in ocean and air cargo to rail cargo on an increasing basis.

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 .
