Geodis Wilson announced the appointment of Rene Bach-Larsen as Cluster Managing Director of Singapore and Southeast Asia.  
 

Looking forward to his new role of developing Geodis Wilson’s business in one of Asia’s most dynamic economical hubs, Rene said, “The Southeast Asia market—Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam—is certainly often overlooked as a growth area because of its modest size compared to the biggest players China and India. However, from a global perspective, it is actually a key area. It has weathered the global recession well and is experiencing rapid growth. I am confident that we can take advantage of this growth and our broad service offering to become a key player in this region.”



Geodis Wilson already offers a full range of services including marine logistics, industrial project cargo, warehousing, distribution, logistics, air/sea freight and deconsolidation/consolidation in Singapore and South East Asia. It also provides a unique cross-border road-trucking service for intra-regional transports to and from China.



Rene Bach-Larsen brings considerable experience and industry know-how to his new position. He joined Geodis Calberson Denmark in 1995 prior to assuming the role of Managing Director of Geodis Wilson Indonesia in 2003, where he was instrumental in establishing a strong business presence, particularly in the logistics segment. He then held the post of Overseas Director (U.K.) from 2006 to 2007 before moving to a central position as Merger Director for Geodis Wilson’s acquisition and integration activities, before he became Managing Director for Geodis in India in 2008.
