The statement very well encapsulates the idea of business operations and how without it, each and every business will fail to deliver the desired value, quality and time to market.
And Logistics industry is the main backbone in an organization supporting it to fulfill these promises.
However, growing client demands, competitive environment, ever-changing consumer demands and new business models demand modern ways to handle logistics which drives not only quality and relevance but speed and consistency as well.
Indian Logistics has following aspects that make it difficult to handle operations without a technological backbone in the system:
- Unorganized Trucking sector
The trucking sector in India is highly dynamic, operated majorly through third party players. The disaggregated ownership structure follows many players in this sector. For the operations to function in a cohesive manner, this trucking structure needs to be moderated with a tech backbone.
- Role of agents
Agents play an important role in India trucking ecosystem by bridging the gap between the truck owner and trucking companies.
- Idle truck time
Without in depth visibility into such disjointed Indian Logistics system, it becomes difficult to cut down idle truck time specially in return journey.
- Information visibility
Logistics managers handle loads of information on day to day basis. Their work includes fleet loading, ensuring safety of fleet as well as staff, cross checking rote maps and sanctioning fuel bills etc. Gaining visibility to the downstream operations is not possible with manual processes.
Real time tracking and proactive decision making would give the logistics player a competitive edge today but the same isn’t possible without data analysis and real time information monitoring.
