Logistics with a heart

How does the Gosselin Logistics’ air freight team make the difference at Brucargo? “We are part of a worldwide network, and this provides us with a lot of clout. At the same time, we apply the type of hands-on approach you might only expect from a smaller company.” Read part two of the interview with Martine Vermoesen.

 
Fast processing, rapid delivery

“The airfreight import team at Brucargo specializes in imports from the Far East,” air freight manager Martine Vermoesen explains. “Shipments from China and India can get here in one day, which might be faster than you would expect. Since we work with airlines offering direct flights, we are able to save time. Once the goods arrive, our own team handles customs clearance. This also contributes to the speed our customers appreciate. We even unload cargo on the weekend; goods that arrive on Sunday on a weekend flight can be delivered to our customers by Monday.”


Digitization promotes efficiency

“Gosselin Logistics is a member of Crosstrades OBL, this network uses a single digital platform for the logistics processing of goods. This means a very fast exchange of information, from the request for a quote to confirmation and scheduling the job. Clients with frequent shipments will soon even be able to manage their supply chain, from production in the factory up to and including the delivery of goods, all thanks to our purchase order management tool.”

“In spite of the fact that we want to play a leading role in digitization, we remain a company with a heart where people make the difference,” Martine says. “Each and every member of the team is enthusiastic and motivated, and all are driven to provide clients with a personal approach.”

Westhinder lashing and securing

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 .
