History

In 1930 Lambert Vivet started a moving company in Antwerp, Belgium. It was joined by Dolf Gosselin and the company was renamed Vivet-Gosselin. In 1984 the company was rebranded again as Gosselin Worldwide Moving as its strategic focus changed to international moving. Later the company expanded its operations in Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia through acquisitions of moving companies and agents. In 2017 Gosselin joined forces with DT Moving and Packimpex to complete its European network of moving companies. 

From the late 80's Gosselin started to diversify into logistics. In 2000 Gosselin Airfreight division was established at Brussels Airport. Shortly after that we started up the inland container terminal at the Albert Canal in 2001. Today Gosselin Logistics and Gosselin Mobility are equal in size regarding turnover.
