Gosselin Logistics offers quick storage solution
Antwerp Cargo Movers, recently acquired by Gosselin, needed an urgent solution to store 900 cubic meters of wood for their customer. Gosselin and Pasec Port came to their aid, resulting in an efficient collaboration between all three companies.
“The wood was purchased at a French sawmill in Goetzenbruck,” Transport & Port Logistics manager Nik Coenye says. “The 900 cubic meters of sawn wood were stored there when the sawmill and the client asked to move it as soon as possible.” Antwerp Cargo Movers approached Gosselin with the request to unload the wood, store it, and reload it later for export.
Temporary storage space was found in Gosselin’s latest facility, the old warehouse of Cuypers. They’re Gosselin’s supplier of forklifts but recently moved to a different location. Since this warehouse is located in the Port of Antwerp, the activities have to be performed by certified port workers. “That’s where Pasec Port, who are located right next to the old Cuypers warehouse, enters the picture. They have the workers and the know-how for a job like this!”
Pasec Port and Gosselin arranged for quick transport to transfer the wood to Belgium. A total of thirty trucks will arrive over three days to deliver their cargo.
“As part of Gosselin Group, we are proud to partake in such a dynamic and resourceful network. This collaboration not only addresses the immediate needs of our clients but also demonstrates our commitment to providing swift and effective solutions within the logistics industry. We appreciate the opportunity to work alongside Gosselin and Pasec Port in this endeavor and look forward to continuing successful collaborations in the future,” Manager Operations of Antwerp Cargo Movers, Nicolas Lens, says.
