History

In 1930 Lambert Vivet started a local moving company in Deurne. Later joined by Dolf Gosselin, it was renamed Vivet-Gosselin. Shifting to international moving, the company was rebranded Gosselin Worldwide Moving in 1984.

From the late 80's Gosselin started to diversify into logistics through several acquisitions of distribution and forwarding companies. In 2000 Gosselin Airfreight division was established at Brussels Airport. The container terminal in Deurne was started up in 2001. After a strategic restructing of the Group in 2007, the forwarding, terminal, warehousing and trucking services were consolidated into one division: Gosselin Logistics.

People

People make it happen!

Our people are the most important and valuable assets of our company. We could have all the trucks, warehouses and cranes in the world, but without the organizational prowess of the people behind it all, we couldn't move a thing.

Our people are committed, approachable and solutions-oriented. They learn on the job but also through regular training courses to keep them at the top of the industry. They know that we began as a family-owned business and do their best to uphold those values. When a problem arises they don't panic; they just find a way around it.
