Sport overview 2023

Gosselin aims to achieve the label of "Sport Company" and emphasizes on more exercise for all colleagues. We made a pretty decent start in 2023 with numerous sport events.

Antwerp 10 Miles

Around 10 colleagues participated in the Shortrun this year. It consisted of a cool course of 6.8 kilometers around the Galgenweel. There were many supporters along the route! After the race, the participants caught their breath at our Gosselin stand and looked back with satisfaction on their athletic achievement.

Our 10 Miles runners arrived back at the Gosselin stand after 16 kilometres, tired but satisfied. We ate a bite, had a drink, and compared running times. It was nice to meet each other outside of office hours. What a TOP sports day! This tasted like more..."

Hellvoc beachvolley

"Life is better at the beach, even when it's an artificial one." Gosselin participated with five teams in the Hellvoc Beach Serious Business Trophy. It is an annual beach volleyball tournament for company teams held in Schelle, near Antwerp. With a 6th, 7th, 10th, 19th, and 22nd place out of 24 teams, there is still room for improvement... See you next year!

Padel - Italy

The teams from Milano and Rome came together for their summer 2023 team-building activity and season kick-off.

"The first part of the day was focused on a collaborative brainstorming session between the Operations and Sales teams. The second half of the day was dedicated to an enjoyable aperitif followed by a sports activity, specifically a game of Padel. We concluded our program with a pizza dinner, accompanied by lively music and a leisurely evening walk.”

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.

Elke middag even naar buiten voor een wandeling

’s Middags even naar buiten om de benen te strekken. Het klinkt haast niet mogelijk in Deurne, maar Hank Guns doet het al meer dan 20 jaar en hij vond al enkele verrassende routes. Hij is fan van het initiatief bij Gosselin om meer in te zetten op beweging en deelt zijn wandelingen maar al te graag met de collega’s.
