Les grandes dates

In the beginning

At 34, Michel Mousset bought his first dump truck and created his trucking company in Sainte-Florence, Vendée. He received support from his wife Anne-Marie. That same year, the company bought its second truck and employed its first driver.



Jean-Michel Mousset took over the company from his father. 1234 Under his leadership, for 20 years, the company never stopped growing, from 27 to855 employees.


A well-known brand in the French transportation market

Jean-Michel Mousset founded the subsidiary AVILOG for transporting live poultry. 20 years later, the small company has emerged as the leading transporter of live poultry in France. Today, the farmyard represents more than half of the company's turnover.


Carrier of the Year

The Mousset Group is voted Carrier of the Year. It also receives the Etoile de la PME Transport award in 1995 and a Camion d'Or de la sécurité award in 1992, 1996 and 2002.


Leadership: international

The Mousset Group first established itself in Poland and then in Morocco. It deploys the know-how and techniques acquired from long experience in the farmyard: an essential knowledge of the environment in these countries where the poultry and dairy industries are developing.
