SEKO opens Mumbai headquarters, Chennai expansion to come
SEKO, a global provider of freight forwarding and logistics services, has recently expanded its SEKO-India operations into Mumbai, on the western coast of the south Asian nation.
While Mumbai will serve as SEKO's India headquarters, the company's main operations and sales office will remain in New Delhi. SEKO-India is responsible for serving Southeast Asia, Europe and the United States. The primary industries served include textiles and fashion exports from India to the West, and electronics and consumer goods imports from China and Southeast Asia. SEKO also operates offices in Ludhiana, Jaipur and Coimbatore, and will soon add a sixth, larger facility in Chennai.
'India's economy is growing at a rate of 8 percent, and this figure is projected to increase to 10 percent in the near future,' said William Wascher, president and chief executive officer of SEKO. 'The country has the largest population of consumers in the world, which is significant because these customers are attracting an increasing quantity of consumer goods into the country that impacts not only the amount of international trade but global logistics requirements.'
