Gosselin Logistics’ expansion reinforces ambitions
Last week, Gosselin Group’s shareholders signed the paperwork finalizing the company’s acquisition of the former Milcobel site on the Albert Canal in Schoten. This move will solidify Gosselin Group’s ambitions for its logistics division.
“The Milcobel site is one of the few large properties in the vicinity of Antwerp, plus it’s located along the Albert Canal. For Gosselin, this is an ideal supplement to its current activities in Deurne, also in combination with the Gosselin Oosterweel site at the Port of Antwerp Bruges, where Gosselin has a 110,000 m2 facility,” says Marc Smet, CEO of Gosselin Group.
Co-director of the Gosselin Group Dirk Vanhoutteghem adds, “This is an excellent opportunity to further develop our logistics division’s activities. More and more companies are looking for commercial space both in and around the Port of Antwerp Bruges to expand their logistics chain from there. This purchase will help us acquire an ideal position organizationally to serve these clients. Thanks to our advantageous location, we can also help improve the development of urban logistics.”
Working on an ecologically responsible approach to the expansion of multimodal transport as well as the digitalization of the logistics chain with the Port of Antwerp Bruges represent the major themes in Gosselin Group’s vision. This investment conveys both shareholders’ positive view of the future as well as their commitment to keep expanding, even during a global pandemic.
