Gosselin welcomes Gert van Engelenburg as European Traffic & Supplier Manager

On May 1, Gert van Engelenburg officially started at Gosselin as European Traffic & Supplier Manager. Gert has more than 30 years of experience in the international moving sector.

A perfect opportunity to get to know Gert better through a short chat at our virtual interview table.

Welcome to Gosselin, Gert!
Excited?

Gert:

“After an intense warm-up period and many virtual conversations with all of the colleagues and external partners involved, I’m really looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting off to a flying start, and to share my knowledge and experience across the entire Gosselin footprint!”

Lennert:
“Gert will be part of the pricing team and will focus specifically on the European component. Managing our own fleet and further optimizing our European supply chain and the inbound and outbound freight consolidation from Antwerp to the US, the UK and the rest of the world will be Gert’s most important duties.”

Challenge and added value.
What is your answer to the challenges ahead?

Lennert:
“Optimizing our truck and container flows and being able to provide adequate responses to changes in European legislation on transports are challenges companies like Gosselin face on a daily basis. Thanks to his extensive knowledge and experience when it comes to both European and global consolidation, Gert is just what we need to continue to promote our value proposition as a pan-European company to our clients.”

Gert:
“I’m not this great visionary, and fortunately Gosselin already has a few employees of this caliber, but based on my experience in the European market and worldwide freight consolidation, we want to make this knowledge accessible and share it with colleagues throughout the Gosselin network.”

Lennert:
“Brexit officially took effect a couple months ago. Gosselin has the advantage of having hubs with in-house customs clearance on both sides of the Channel. Gert will be able to offer true added value for these facilities thanks to his broad customs knowledge.”

Entrepreneurship on a grand scale.
How do you see Gosselin as a newbee?

Gert:
“I’ve been familiar with Gosselin for quite a long time. The company made a huge impression on me during a visit to the head office more than 25 years ago. I really like working for great companies. Gosselin is a company with a solid foundation. The ambitious drive for entrepreneurship is perhaps what convinced me to contact Gosselin, and I’m really looking forward to grab this amazing opportunity with both hands!”

Welcome to Gosselin Gert van Engelenburg!
“The chance to do business in such a wonderful, established organization is one I’m grabbing with both hands, and I’m really looking forward to it.”

FIDI FAIM re-certification huge success

Three more Gosselin offices have recently re-obtained their FIDI certification. FIDI is an organization whose membership is restricted to moving companies that have successfully completed a certification procedure. This results in a network of FIDI-certified agents. Seeing as how all three offices passed their recertification audit successfully, we asked branch managers Laurent (Switzerland), Barbara (Italy) and Viktor (Russia) about their experience with this remote process organized using Microsoft Teams.
