As a member of the GSC, BERGÉ headed this project and visit with the aim of establishing joint working lines that can be developed in the future.

The General Stevedoring Council fosters analysis and debate on best industry practice in the areas of health and safety, labour relations, technology, innovation, productivity, procurement and the environment.
