NEW SERVICES FOCUS ON AFRICA

Geert De Wilde (Gosselin Logistics) 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.”   

“We are monitoring the data of the cargo, meaning we know exactly where it is on its journey”, concludes Geert. “We offer this service for container transport, air freight and project loads. We are convinced that our logistic services in Africa are attractive to companies with a significant supply chain to the African market. We will be present at the fair Breakbulk Africa on April 6 and 7.”
