Geodis Wilson opens new oil and gas logistics hubs
The global freight management and logistics provider Geodis Wilson is expanding its global network of operating hubs dedicated to the oil and gas industry. In addition to existing hubs in Houston TX (USA) and Vitrolles, near Marseille (France), the company recently opened a third hub in Singapore. Two more, in Antwerp (Belgium) and Dubai (UAE), will be online by the end of the year. One in China and another one in South Africa are planned for 2015.
The development, which started with the creation of the division's headquarters and primary oil and gas hub in Houston in 2009, is in line with Geodis Wilson's strategic growth plan in its industrial projects division for the burgeoning oil and gas industry. The service provider aims to increase freight volumes by 50% within a year after inaugurating the new hubs.
