CONCOR has carried out an internal restructuring which involved compressing eight regions into four as part of a strategy to rationalize operations, better utilize human resources, cut costs and boost revenue. It will also help the organization to have faster and decentralized decision making by empowering field units to improve operational efficiency. The newly formed areas will be headed by Executive Director at Corporate level.
The erstwhile regions of North West and Central Regions were merged into Area II (West) which now comprises of two clusters namely Ahmedabad Cluster & Mumbai Cluster and the Cluster heads will look after the Business Development & operations of their respective clusters.
Ahmedabad Cluster :

Mumbai Cluster :
1. Serving the city of Mumbai, which is the commercial and industrial hub of the country makes this Cluster an important source and destination for a substantial volume of containerized cargo. In addition to catering to the crucial Mumbai traffic, the cluster also covers parts of Southern Maharashtra, Southern Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Goa under its jurisdiction.
