Geodis Wilson has announced the expansion of its global network of operating hubs dedicated to the oil and gas sector. In addition to existing hubs in Houston, US, and Vitrolles in France, the company has opened a third hub in Singapore. Two more, in Antwerp, Belgium, and Dubai, UAE, are expected to be complete by the end of 2014 and a further two are planned for 2015 in China and South Africa.
The company states that the development is in line with the strategic growth plan in its Industrial Projects division for the burgeoning oil and gas sector. Under the plan it expects to increase freight volumes by 50% within a year after opening the new hubs.
From its headquarters and primary oil and gas hub in Houston the company has developed its network of operational centres across the globe. The new hub in Singapore is strategically located to service the oil and gas clusters in South East 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 and gas hub for the Middle East and South Asia.
