In the course of their respective careers, Jérôme Perrin and Hervé Lavallée have accumulated extensive international experience. In 1997, they realize that companies attending international trade fairs often face difficulties. They spend too much time trying to work out how to transport their exhibition materials in the best possible way, instead of concentrating on the event itself.
So Jérôme and Hervé launch GES, a transporting company that takes care of international transports destined for trade fairs and exhibitions. Ever since, they have put their logistics experience at the disposal of their clients, making sure that all international transports run smoothly, from door to door.
The team has grown steadily and since 2001, GES has added the transport of Fine Arts to their range of services, with a dedicated and experienced point of contact. Until today, the company has continued to develop and grow its reputation as a trustworthy partner for its clients and network of forwarding agents, whatever the transport.
In 2005 GES becomes a member of the French Federation for the Exhibition and Events Trade (Fédération Française des Métiers de l’Exposition et de l’Évenement).
In 2013, GES wins a 3-year tender to become the official partner of ‘Business France’ for all their transports in France and Europe , a contract that was prolonged in 2016.
In 2016, GES joins IELA (International Exhibition Logistics Association), the prestigious trade association that regroups specialist transit and transportation companies with a proven track-record in their particular area of expertise.
