Cargo Talk - - Logistics Services -

Geodis, known for pro­vid­ing a wide range of sus­tain­able, in­no­va­tive and cost-sav­ing trans­port and lo­gis­tics so­lu­tions, has re­cently re­lo­cated its na­tional head of­fice to Gur­gaon in In­dia. The new of­fice was in­au­gu­rated by Mathieu Re­nard Biron, re­gional vice pres­i­dent – Geodis Wil­son Asia Pa­cific and Rene Bach Larsen, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor – Geodis In­dia, on De­cem­ber 8, 2012.

The Euro­pean based group – the 4th largest player of the con­ti­nent – was one of the first in­ter­na­tional lo­gis­tics com­pa­nies to es­tab­lish op­er­a­tions in China and In­dia, and has been op­er­at­ing in Asia Pa­cific for over 30 years. Geodis is con­tin­u­ously grow­ing its pres­ence in In­dia. Over the past 4 years the com­pany has ex­tended its net­work by 10 new lo­ca­tions, cov­er­ing all ma­jor sea and air­ports of the coun­try.

Rene Bach Larsen, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, In­dia, Geodis Overseas, said on the oc­ca­sion, “We are very op­ti­mistic about the In­dian freight man­age­ment sec­tor. In line with our cor­po­rate strat­egy, we have fo­cussed on ver­ti­cal so­lu­tions for the In­dian mar­ket, specif­i­cally in the seg­ment of au­to­mo­tive, re­tail, hi-tech, pharma and in­dus­trial projects.”

Since 2009, the an­nual rev­enue in In­dia has been more than dou­ble. “Com­pa­nies in In­dia shift from price to high-qual­ity ser­vice as their pri­mary buy­ing driver. They are look­ing for a strate­gic part­ner that they can rely on for their grow­ing and rapidly chang­ing needs,” Rene added.
