Gosselin guarantees monthly departures for export groupage
Agents from all over the world know how to find Gosselin as a reliable partner for import groupage throughout Europe. Over the past year, innovative solutions have been diligently worked on, which will now also be implemented in the field of export groupage. While there are often issues with transit times and reliable departure dates due to containers not reaching full capacity, Gosselin guarantees monthly departures.
Guaranteed departures to Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Israel, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, UAE, USA, India (and more to come)
Unique Concept - Groupage 2.0
Gosselin places high importance on quality and distinguishes itself in the unique way it executes groupage. Household goods are transported to most destinations in Liftvans, ensuring that nothing gets lost and significantly reducing the chance of damage. Additionally, we stand out in clear communication and provide weekly updates for you and/or your clients, reducing handling for our overseas agents as well.
Trade Service - For Agents
All shipments can be delivered to Antwerp. However, for agents, household goods from across Gosselin's footprint can be collected by truck and then depart via Antwerp to the aforementioned destinations. As an additional service, Gosselin can also handle the origin service for our agents, whether it's door-to-door, warehouse-to-door, and more. Gosselin does it all.
Innovation - The Future of Groupage
A special tool has been developed, enabling our staff in all 56 offices across 34 countries to generate a quote with a simple click. The tool displays the next departures and also indicates the remaining container space. Gosselin will roll this out for external agents in 2024. We combine the cost-effectiveness of groupage with a quality and reliable service, making it an interesting option even for Global Accounts!
LCL vs. Groupage
LCL (Less than Container Load) shipments are nothing but shipments consolidated into a container. Gosselin chooses to include these in its own containers. This reduces high DTHC/NVOCCC costs at the arrival port, and due to our guaranteed monthly departures, the difference in transit times is minimal. The ultimate goal is to achieve weekly departures to these destinations, further reducing transit times.
