Our trades

“Unity in diversity” is the motto of the Mousset Group. Whether it’s so-called “farmyard” transport, worksite or home deliveries of housing equipment or transportation of agricultural machinery, the common denominator of all of these activities is the way in which we use our expertise, our knowledge of the product (whether live, fragile, bespoke or bulky) and an unwavering commitment to service in order to provide our clients with immediate, flexible solutions to their problems, no matter how complex. Meeting these challenges is what motivates the 1,800 Mousset Group employees in France and overseas.

Farmyard driver

“Farmyard” drivers are drawn more to the countryside than they are to tarmac. They enjoy working as part of a team and being in close contact with farmers. They also enjoy driving when everyone else is still asleep and having their morning coffee and croissant at daybreak. They like a world that is closer to agriculture than it is to transport.

“What I enjoy most about this job is getting to work on my own for a good part of the day! I like the atmosphere on farms as well, the people who work in those environments, I feel at home there. I feel appreciated, they make us coffee, the people are friendly. I also really like the countryside, it’s totally different from the motorway.”

Herminio Almeida-Gomez, driver for Loralait

Industrial transportation driver

Being a driver in industry means driving projects first and foremost – and big projects at that: a concrete block for a building, a veranda for a family home, a new piece of agricultural equipment for a farm…No two loads are ever the same, and the same goes for the methods used to transport them – these are high value items, many of which are bespoke. For drivers, the responsibility might be huge, but so too is the pleasure of delivering to worksites, factories, farms and homes.

“I love this job, which I see more as a way of life. I have so much freedom in this job, getting to meet new people and tackling a range of different assignments. When you’re a driver, you’re also working for yourself, you get to manage your own time, which is what I enjoy. There’s plenty of work, and a good amount of effort when needed, but we’re still free.”

Patrick Lambert, VIAL driver

Temperature-controlled transport drivers

Being a temperature-controlled (refrigerated) delivery driver means ensuring that products stay fresh or frozen between leaving the production site and arriving at where they are to be sold. Careful loading, monitoring temperatures, taking care in delivery – mostly in town centres – drivers must keep a close eye on their cargos. This is no small feat, especially when it involves travelling across several countries.

“We place a great deal of emphasis on safety and regulatory compliance within the Mousset Group. Our vehicles offer the best possible conditions in terms of comfort and the very latest technology, but these are still just tools. The most important factor remains the concentration levels of our drivers. We work day in, day out on rational driving as well as on the cold chain. Looking after our goods is an essential part of what we do.”

International driver

From the transportation of live animals to animal feed, the Mousset Group has expanded beyond national borders, establishing itself in both Poland and Ukraine via local subsidiaries of Avilog. Across the Mediterranean in Morocco, in 2011 the Mousset Group set up the subsidiaries TALM (Transports Avilog Loralait Maroc), a specialist in milk collection, and Mousset Maroc, a specialist in refrigerated transport.

Operations manager

Operations managers are the real “bosses” on site, with autonomy and responsibility over the following issues:

  • Managing client relationships
  • Recruitment and managing a team of drivers
  • Selecting and managing materials
  • Economic management and business development

The operations manager is part of the Mousset Group’s four-level management structure. Responsible for managing their drivers, they are managed in turn by the Regional Director or the Subsidiary Director.

 

 

Operations manager

“I studied a BTS course for two years, on a work-study placement with the Mousset Group. I thought it was brilliant and knew right away that this was the perfect job for me: human relations, materials, deadlines, adrenaline…I love it all! After my exams, the company needed a manager to manage a site over the summer, and so I filled in. When autumn came around, they gave me the job on a permanent basis. That was 12 years ago. I’m now studying to be a director and I’m on the Youth Steering Committee.”
