Inland navigation gaining in importance
Gosselin often transports crates for the moving division from Deurne to the Left Bank and vice versa; since both storage areas are located on the same side of the water, the idea arose to arrange this part of the transport by inland navigation. Up to now, this has resulted in 82 fewer trucks on the roads around Antwerp and an appealing reduction in CO2 emissions.

We are of course very pleased with these figures.”
