On November 15, 2009, the Swiss based InterRail Group opened a sales delegation office in Mumbai, India. Mahesh Kumar, 37, is the head of the delegation. He has longstanding and profound experience in the transportation and logistics industry.
Kumar comes from an European forwarder where he was responsible for the CIS business of its Indian network of branches.
India is an important, future oriented market for Inter Rail, as the country is in close economic exchange with the markets of the CIS. Often, shippers and forwarders use transport routes via China or Iran for cargo going to Central Asia or Russia where both InterRail is established with own personnel and railbased products. With its own sales delegation now established in India, InterRail is strengthening its activities in this geographic region considerably.The InterRail Group with its headquarters in St. Gallen, Switzerland, is a leading European service enterprise specialized in rail based transport logistics. The Group offers its services to forwarders and all other logistics and transportation agents. The product portfolio also comprises the brokering of rail freight services and intermodal transportation in the CIS, Iran, Central Asia, China, and Europe.
