India, 10 December 2013 - The global multimodal service provider Geodis Wilson is once again a gold sponsor at this year’s Automotive Logistics – India Conference, which takes place at the Hyatt Regency Pune from 11 – 13 December. Mark Ellis, the recently appointed Global Industry Director for Automotive, will be addressing as the conference and will be joined by several Regional Executives from Geodis Wilson.
The automotive industry in India is the sixth largest in the world and Asia’s fourth largest. It has grown to around three million units in the course of 2011-12. The growth is attributed to the rise in the middle class population, as well as the younger demographic of the country. India’s auto industry is going through an evolution; decreasing labour turnover, improving vehicle delivery infrastructure and signs of progress in the legislative and regulatory environment. The combination of these factors together with a pool of skilled manpower and growing technology are some positive indicators of increasing efficiency in the supply chain.
The fast pace of the auto industry’s growth and its obvious potential for the future, makes it a key focus for Geodis. The Company has been present in the country since 1998 and is well equipped with local expertise, experience and industry knowledge to offer integrated logistics solution for the auto Industry.
Mark Ellis will be participating in session 3A of the Conference on Thursday, 12th December. He will present, along with colleagues from the logistics sector as well as a representative from Mahindra and Mahindra, the Indian automobile manufacturing corporation; the topic for discussion will be “Managing the Complete Supply Chain.”
Speaking prior to this key event, Mark Ellis said, “Geodis Wilson understands that the automotive industry brings its own set of challenges. We stand behind our company slogan “Expect More”. This goes beyond a brand promise; it is our commitment to the industry. We help to drive the automotive business forward with an innovative approach to analyze supply chains and understand logistics needs for our customers.”
