Partnership with Schelde Exotech puts on weight

Gosselin has been transporting large industrial components for Schelde Exotech for years. Now that the company is moving to a new location, the weight restrictions no longer apply, and Gosselin is looking forward to new possibilities.

Up until the present, Schelde Exotech worked from the old port in the area around Vlissingen, which entailed the expected restrictions on weight and dimensions of the machines the company manufactures. They are moving to the new port area where the options, like the components, are bigger.  “Schelde Exotech develops machines and components for the oil and gas industry,” Senior Logistics Executive Ronny Michiels explains. “These units are larger than a standard truck, and weigh up to two or even three hundred tons.”

Gosselin handles the logistics for these projects. Depending on the contract between Schelde Exotech and their customer, Logistics transports the components directly from the Schelde Exotech site to the final destination, or from Schelde Exotech to the port of destination (at the customer’s request). “These projects always involve a lot of pre-planning and organization. We visit the production sites to determine what is or isn’t possible, and learn more about the different modes of transport that can be used, local conditions, and local regulations,” according to Ronny. “We spent a year on a single project in Germany, for example. This came with the expected and unexpected obstacles, but ultimately we always bring every transport to a successful conclusion.”

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.
