Geodis Wilson Opens New Hub in Singapore

Geodis Wilson has opened its third hub in Singapore. Two more, in Antwerp and Dubai, will be online by the end of the year and a further two are planned for 2015. The development is in line with Geodis Wilson's strategic growth plan in its Industrial Projects division for the burgeoning Oil & Gas sector, where it plans to increase freight volumes by 50% within a year after opening the new hubs. From its headquarters and primary Oil & Gas hub in Houston (established in 2009) the company has developed its network of operational centres across the globe. The new hub in Singapore is strategically located to service the Oil & Gas clusters in Southeast Asia. The North African region is served through its Vitrolles hub in the South of France. The upcoming centre in Antwerp will serve North Sea activities, Eastern Europe and Africa, while Dubai will become Geodis Wilson's Oil & Gas hub for the Middle East and Indian sub-continent. In 2015, the company plans to expand into China and South Africa with the launch of additional hubs. Companies in the Oil & Gas sector place complex and constantly changing demands on their supply chains.
