June 2 - Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has appointed Gur Prasad Kohli as managing director for India.

Kohli (pictured below), who will be based in Chennai, joins WWL after serving for the past five years as managing director in Hong Kong for Wilhelmsen Ships Service.

He has more than 20 year experience in shipping and logistics. After 18 years at sea , including four years as a Captain, Kohli served ashore in various business units throughout Asia with the Wilh. Wilhemsen Group.

Kohli says: "My new position involves maintaining and growing WWL's business in India, and responsibility for our current operations, which includes a variety of factory to dealer logistics services for manufacturers, including yard management and inland distribution. In the coming months we are seeking to broaden the coverage of our services for markets in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan, which will bring a whole new set of exciting challenges!

"India is a growing economy. There is an undeniable demand for infrastructure and consumer goods that brings tremendous opportunity to logistics providers that are efficient and can offer a complete SCM solution. And the whole region is a growing consumer and industrial market, so India is consequently becoming a hub for manufacturers of autos, heavy rolling equipment and wind turbine generators

WWL's main goals for India in the coming years are to provide customers with ro-ro ocean transportation on both the East and West Coasts; help heavy rolling equipment manufacturers in India build efficient global supply chains and help OEMs, 3PLs and forwarders looking to bring project cargo into India
