Global logistics provider GEODIS has established its sixth strategic control tower in Bangalore, India for its Supply Chain Optimization Line of Business which specializes in supply chain management and advisory.
Bangalore Center of Excellence (CoE) is going to provide customers with end-to-end visibility, performance monitoring and continuous improvement to supply chain processes on a 365/7/24 multilingual basis, according to a statement.
Officially opened during a formal ceremony on 21 December, the Center operates with 60 supply chain experts and complements the existing centers in Mexico, United States, France, Serbia and China.
Eric Gerbi, executive vice president for GEODIS Supply Chain Optimization line of Business, commented, “GEODIS Centers of Excellence are aimed to help build a culture of excellence in our customers’ supply chain management. We strive to achieve this through managing their business from one place and improve the required overall visibility.”
He added, “Working closely with customers, our teams of experts optimize operational processes. By exerting total control of the supply chain, they improve resiliency as well as accelerate decision-making. These are crucial outcomes, particularly in today’s complex and global supply chain ecosystem.”
GEODIS stated that Bangalore CoE will render services from order management to pick-up and delivery management, exception management, and freight bill audit. GEODIS’ web-based visibility platform forms the backbone of the center of excellence while ensuring end-to-end visibility, performance monitoring and enhancement, continuous improvement and network optimisation.
Furthermore, the new CoE’s location in Bangalore was chosen for the availability of a critical mass of talented supply chain specialists. The investment was also attracted by the fact that India has the world’s fifth-largest economy with a high growth rate and the biggest population of graduates.
