c hen­nai-based Mile­stone Con­sult­ing Group, a busi­ness con­sult­ing and 4PL ser­vice provider, re­cently tied up with Aus­trali­abased Lo­gis­tics Ex­ec­u­tive Group (which has been in In­dia since 2010) to tap the grow­ing po­ten­tial of lo­gis­tics busi­ness in In­dia. Both the com­pa­nies are en­gaged in hu­man re­source de­vel­op­ment ser­vice for the lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain man­age­ment sec­tor. The new joint ven­ture – Lo­gis­tics Ex­ec­u­tive In­dia –will be open­ing three new of­fices in Mum­bai, Delhi and Chen­nai each of­fer­ing a range of ser­vices in­clud­ing ac­cred­ited train­ing, tal­entmap­ping, re­cruit­ment process out­sourc­ing and busi­ness in­tel­li­gence in the lo­gis­tics sec­tor. In fact, in the next two years, the com­pany is also plan­ning to set up a re­puted train­ing acad­emy in In­dia for the train­ing and out­sourc­ing skilled man­power in the in­dus­try, in­formed LR Srid­har, MD – In­dia and Sub­con­ti­nent, Lo­gis­tics Ex­ec­u­tive In­dia and Founder, Mile­stone Con­sult­ing Group. Ac­cord­ing to Srid­har, the In­dian lo­gis­tics in­dus­try has grown ver­ti­cally since 10 years now, but the skilled man­power is not per in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. He said, “Ev­ery year, many multi-national com­pa­nies are en­ter­ing In­dia as busi­ness po­ten­tial is enor­mous here. How­ever, to cater to the global clients, we need in­ter­na­tional-stan­dard ser­vices and man­power. Un­for­tu­nately, we don’t have skilled man­power in lo­gis­tics in­dus­try and thus, we in­tend to im­prove this through our ser­vices. We in­tend to cre­ate a tal­ent pool, of­fer re­cruit­ing, con­sult­ing and pro­vide our ex­per­tise at ev­ery level of hu­man re­sources. With this part­ner­ship, we will bring in global-level ex­per­tise and net­work­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties of­fer­ing a full cy­cle of hu­man re­source ser­vices.” Talk­ing about the part­ner­ship with an In­dian op­er­a­tor, Kim Win­ter, Group CEO, Lo­gis­tics Ex­ec­u­tive Group said, “With lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain be­ing a key driver of growth in In­dian econ­omy, the in­vest­ment in this part­ner­ship will set up a plat­form for In­dian and MNC com­pa­nies in In­dia to take ad­van­tage of th­ese op­por­tu­ni­ties. We will be de­vel­op­ing their staff de­vel­op­ment and tal­ent pro­grammes with which they can com­pete on a global stage.” Fur­ther­more, Srid­har adds, “The op­por­tu­nity to truly in­te­grate train­ing and in­tern­ships to job-place­ment, to be bet­ter po­si­tioned to de­velop ex­ec­u­tive tal­ent whilst help­ing to drive busi­ness and sup­ply chain per­for­mance through our real-time busi­ness con­sult­ing and 4PL ser­vices for lo­gis­tics and SCM is a unique ser­vice of­fer­ing in In­dia”.
