With the entry of Peugeot into India around the corner with its own manufacturing facility, Gefco’s advent is a foregone conclusion. Wherever Peugeot goes, Gefco always follow its parent to take charge of its automotive logistical management: both inbound and outbound.  So, it found a perfect partner in Mercurio Pallia to engage locally to handle Peugeot needs and look beyond.

What India does or not in the sphere of safe driving on the highways is nothing to write home about. But nations across the globe are very serious – I repeat, very serious about this issue. In fact the CSA (Compliance, Safety, Accountability) 2010 has stirred much debate over the last few months in the United States.
