The company has recorded a double digit growth in the first six months of this fiscal and is expecting to maintain this growth in the next six months ending March 2014. To sustain the profitability and work towards better growth, the company is focusing on two different sets of business strategies. “one set of strategies consists of managing things which are in our control and the other consists of the ones which are not in our control. We plan our ‘in-control’ strategies as per the ‘not-in-control’ strategies. For instance, in last six to eight months, three Indian states announced different sales tax figures as well as entry & exit check point rules. That’s not in our control and we need to have a strategy to cope up with such a situation. But, more importantly, given the ever-changing environment variables how fast do we change our plans, alter our strategies and execute the same is definitely in our control.”
Apart from two sets of business strategies, the company is also focusing on growth strategy. “The key elements in this being ‘consistency’ in transit time as well as service quality, which helps our customers to plan their supply chain efficiently,” he said. Safexpress is also utilising mobilebased technology for augmenting the information sharing with its customers.
