New services focus on Africa

Gosselin Logistics expands its activities and offers export from Europe and China to landlocked Sub-Saharan countries.

Geert De Wilde explains: “Shipping goods to an African harbor isn’t that difficult, it’s the trajectory afterwards to the inland destination that can be problematic. And that’s what customers want, they want to have their shipment delivered at the destination. Gosselin Logistics offers shipments to landlocked Sub-Saharan countries in-house from start to finish. Collaborating with the CrossTrades network means we have a elaborate network of local agents at our disposal. They have been screened and apply levels of quality that are similar to ours. In many cases these agents are Belgians who have acquired a thorough understanding of local African customs. Since we offer this service also in Asia through the CrossTainer network one could say that we are the only Belgian forwarder that connects Europe to China and Africa.”

Opwaardering Albertkanaal

Nog meer inzetten op binnenvaart

De opwaardering van het Albertkanaal is bijna voltooid. De ophoging van de bruggen en verbreding van het kanaal zorgen dat vierlaags containervaart voor DV containers voortaan mogelijk wordt. Ook voor Gosselin is dit goed nieuws aangezien Logistics zwaar inzet op de binnenvaart als transportmiddel.
