Importance of supply chain consulting in India

In the era of fierce competition, escalating costs, pandemic aftermath, and reduced efficiency, it is critical for businesses to remain on top of their game from manufacturing till the final delivery to ensure supply is well- synchronised with any change in demand across their supply chain in a timely, yet efficient manner.

Owing to the dynamic nature of the Indian economy & the industry, it becomes extremely difficult for the companies to concentrate on production, product-design, targeting, segmentation & promotion and at the same time, also maintain harmony in the distribution of their product lines.

Businesses and product-based enterprises face supply chain challenges and need apt solutions and consultancy for overcoming the logistics and supply chain bottlenecks. An efficient Logistics and supply chain model plays a pivotal role for the success of any company by channelising its products and making them available to the customers, at the right place and at right time at a cost, & reduces its overall logistics costs. Logistics costs include not just transportation costs which contribute as one of the component but also include warehousing costs, inventory costs, handling costs, insurance costs and many more. To build an efficient logistics and supply chain model, it requires careful and deep analysis of the historic data, vision of the company and also needs consideration of the company’s philosophy and understanding of supply chain’s deliverables.

To overcome supply chain hassles, MNCs and even small businesses that are moving to an e-commerce model, are now looking to outsource supply chain consulting and solutions ranging from order procurement to warehousing, inventory management & finally dispatch of orders to their distribution channels, to an expert & reliable logistics service provider in order to meet their customers’ demand across their supply chain, & yet have complete control on their distribution timelines and costs.
