Georgia - A quarter century of top-notch service

 

“Gosselin’s Georgia story began in 1995, not long after the break-up of the Soviet Union,” John Braeckeveldt says. “Embassies started establishing a presence in Tbilisi, the first diplomats began arriving and we were organizing their moves. The growth of the office and the evolution of the country as an independent state went hand-in-hand.”

“I arrived in Georgia in 2004 to grow the company further. Not long afterwards, Gosselin bought a plot of land that we are still using to this day. In 2006, we started construction on a warehouse which became operational a year later and in 2009 we were approved as a bonded warehouse.” (This is a facility where goods can be stored without having to pay import duties on them.)

“The most recent milestone for me was a visit from a delegation of Belgian members of parliament in 2018. This was great confirmation for me that we are seen as an important Belgian business in Georgia. In 2019, our warehouse systems were connected using the same software as the Gosselin warehouses use in Belgium. This will help us to expand the business in Georgia so it can become a logistics hub for the Gosselin Group.”

 

Marc Smet, CEO of Gosselin Group: “John has succeeded in modernizing the office in Georgia and building on it in line with our vision. The Caucasus countries are engaged in a complete evolution and our presence is crucial on a strategic level. Congratulations on the anniversary, and here’s to the next 25 years!”

It started with a phone call

Many art moving projects involve a great deal of planning, hard work and precise time management. This is even more so when the project involves shipping precious art objects on behalf of Sergio Mattarella, President of Italy, to the residence of the President of the Republic of Armenia, Armen Sarkissian.
