Road VS Rail transport

European Logistics goes Multi-modal!

Gosselin currently launched a new trial project combining the usual road transport with train groupage in Europe. It is the perfect combination between handling large volumes, less reloads, less damage risks, and focusing on sustainability at the same time.

Gosselin offers mobility menu via the ‘Pendelproeverij’

The ‘Pendelproeverij’ at Gosselin was a success! Colleagues were able to choose from a mobility menu filled with alternatives for those who are tired of driving in busy traffic. City bikes, electric bikes, speed pedelecs, but also subscriptions for public transport or the many public bicycle initiatives such as Blue-bike and Donkey Republic.

With a complex supply chain in moving and a broad range of certifications on the market, getting to a definitive measure of sustainability can be problematic. Petr Prozcházka, Country Representative of Gosselin, Czechia, explains why a single uniform standard would help the sector transition for mandatory reporting.
