This year, we would again like to support the needy and those seeking help and give them a moment of happiness at Christmas time. Our Christmas donation therefore goes to the following organizations.
Gaining space 2.0
In order to meet steadily rising requirements of our customers also in the long term, we have increased our storage capacity to 6.200 m².
Please contact us – we have tailor-made solutions for you.
Change of coach
As of June 1, 2022, Jörg Hardt will assume the position of Managing Director and replace Ralf Amerkamp, who will remain with the company as Sales Manager.
We thank Ralf Amerkamp for his work as Managing Director and are pleased that he will continue to support the company with his expertise.
Our efforts have paid off. We are glad that we have been able to offer a long-term storage option to one of our customers. For this reason, we have rented a storage area of 4,500 m² in Dinslaken from June 1, 2022 for the next few years.
Climate protection is our goal
In 2022, we remain committed to climate protection. As part of a reforestation project by PLANT-MY-TREE®, a further 100 trees were planted on our behalf. In this way, we help our local forests and protect the climate and the environment.
Working together, because every tree counts.
“Stop and help – Find out where help is needed.”
Showing charity and giving hope to others is close to our hearts. That is why we have donated this Christmas to the following organizations.
For you, for us, for safety.
We would like to inform you that as of September 29, 2021, GCL is officially certified as an Authorized Economic Operator in accordance with the AEO ‚Customs Simplifications, Security and Safety‘ certificate (AEOF).
We care about sustainability
We want to take action and make a contribution to protecting our climate. To help our local forests, we are having 100 trees planted as part of a regional project by PLANT-MY-TREE, because reforestation is an effective way to protect both our climate and our environment.
Working together, because every tree counts.
Significant cost increases in permit procedures for large volume and heavy transport as of 2021
Dear Sir or Madam,
We wish to inform you about changes in permit procedures which will have a future impact on your large volume and heavy transports.
On 01.01.2021 an increase in fees for transport permits became effective, which can amount to almost three times the present fees for an average heavy transport.
The Federal Ministry of Transport has resolved that with the 54th amendment of the road transport regulations, on 01.01.2021 the scale of fees for road traffic measures will be changed in order to specify a nationally uniform scale of fees with uniform calculation base for the federal states for large volume and heavy transport permits.
With the introduction of this uniform tool, the federal states intend to ensure competitive equality and also take into account the costs to approval authorities.
On the basis of a basic fee and other factors such as the number of routes which are applied for, the number of authorities involved, and the size of the transport, etc., since 01.01.2021 permits have become fundamentally more expensive. Up to an amount of € 250.00 the permit costs are included in our offer. If the costs exceed this amount, they will be charged plus a handling fee of 10 %. In case of cancellation, from this point on, regardless of the vehicle cancellation costs, the incurred permit costs will have to be charged to you. In the event of cancellation, as of this time we shall have to pass on the permit costs to you regardless of the vehicle cancellation costs.
At Christmas time, think of others and spread joy
This year our donations went to the following organisations. We hope that, by doing this, we can provide some support and spread a little optimism during this challenging time.
“Active in sports with GCL!”
We are also involved in amateur sports. The members of the JSG Tecklenburger Land wear shirts from GCL. Good luck for the coming season.
“Children refresh life and rejoice the heart!”
We hope that our donation brought some joy to the children of the Ev. Familienzentrum Magdalenen – Kita, Nottuln (Magdalene Ev. Family Centre Nursery, Nottuln).
“At the end of the day, children’s laughter is the only gift that counts!”
That is why we have decided to make a donation to the Kinderhospizdienst Ruhrgebiet e.V. in Witten, supporting terminally ill children and their families, this Christmas.
