Geodis relocates in Gurgaon
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.
