My internship at Gosselin Logistics

Yasmine is a student at the Karel de Grote University College in Antwerp, Belgium, and is studying Logistics Management. She did an internship at Gosselin for a few months in the spring. “During my internship, I worked on an innovative project at Gosselin. The company is one of the trendsetters in Belgium using digital transport documents or e-CMR. The paper CMR was used for over half a century; it was time for something new. In cooperation with the company Pionira and supervised by my colleagues Gary Maveau, Nathalie Luyckx and Karen Van Brussel, I studied the ins and outs of the e-CMR.”

“The objective of my internship was to implement digital transport documents in the distribution division. Since we started from scratch, we had a lot of work to do, both brainstorming and hands-on action: the system had to be tested across the entire line for the positions of driver, dispatcher and administrator.”


Why did you choose Gosselin?

“Because Gosselin is known for making constant improvements and investing in the future. I was looking for an innovative project that would bear fruit after my internship. The e-CMR is without a doubt one of the major developments in the logistics sector.”

“So many benefits are linked to the implementation, such as better visibility in the supply chain, a reduction in work load and fewer repetitive tasks for employees, so that they can concentrate on their core duties. The implementation of e-CMR also has an environmental benefit, making it easier to achieve the ‘clean desk’ objective.”

“I secretly hope that digital transport documents can serve as an example for other companies. I personally am an educational experience and one diploma richer. I would like to thank the Gosselin Group for this amazing opportunity and particularly all the colleagues I had the pleasure of working with!”
