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.

“This initiative, powered by Lantis, is the perfect way for colleagues to try out new ways to commute to work without having to commit long-term. For a duration of four weeks, they can try out their preferred option for free,” says Karlien Van Molle, team leader HR. All test bikes are insured for damages and theft and were delivered to Gosselin for pick-up where they will be collected again after the trial period.

Even Petr Prochazka, the Country Manager of the Czech Republic, who resides in Belgium for a few months, decided to participate. “I’m glad that this project kicked off on my first day in Belgium where I will work on ESG sustainability projects. Back at home, I also cycled or walked to the office. It’s a good way to stay fit! I’ve agreed with a colleague to cycle to work together.”

But Karlien herself also participated. “I already have an electric bike via the bike lease plan, but wanted to try a speed pedelec. After getting used to the bike on the test course we had set out, I cycled home in only fifteen minutes!” The ‘Pendelproeverij’ fits perfectly with Gosselin’s aim to have as many colleagues as possible commute to work in more sustainable ways, but also works well with the sports initiative to get as many people as possible moving. It’s a win-win!

Thanks to a solar panel installation of 1.5 MW from ENGIE, Gosselin is becoming a more sustainable logistics player

ENGIE installed a 1.5 MW solar panel installation at the Gosselin site in Antwerp. This installation of more than 3,000 solar panels will allow them to reduce their CO2 emissions by 535 tons per year, equivalent to the annual emissions of 268 diesel cars.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.

A short walk outdoors every afternoon

Stepping outside to stretch your legs in the afternoon. It sounds almost impossible in Deurne, but Hank Guns has been doing it for over 20 years, discovering some surprising routes along the way. He's a fan of the initiative at Gosselin to focus more on movement and gladly shares his walks with colleagues.
