GSEC fa­cil­i­tates en­try of new air­lines to Ahmed­abad Air­port

The dif­fi­cult times due to eco­nomic slow­down have in­creased the im­por­tance of the sup­ply-chain as a func­tion, and thereby in­creas­ing fo­cus on the ef­fi­cien­cies of sys­tems, pro­cesses and in­fra­struc­ture. Samir Mankand, Di­rec­tor, GSEC, is con­fi­dent the lo­gist

f or Mankand, the chal­lenges in meet­ing the cus­tomer’s de­mands have two di­men­sions. One is in terms of pro­vid­ing qual­ity in­fra­struc­ture-build­ings, x-ray ma­chines, ma­te­rial han­dling equip­ment, etc. “To this end, we con­tin­u­ously keep in­vest­ing in cold rooms, strong rooms and ma­chines,” he said. Another di­men­sion is that of ef­fi­cient pro­cesses and cus­tomer ori­en­ta­tion of the com­pany’s per­son­nel. “We are try­ing to im­bibe the best prac­tices at big­ger air­ports. We train our per­son­nel both for the knowl­edge base, as well as at­ti­tu­di­nal is­sues,” he added.

GSEC has re­cently cre­ated a 3,500 sq mt ware­house which con­tains close to 300 sq mt of cold rooms. “We are adding two cold rooms ev­ery year, as the de­mand for phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts grows. We have re­cently aug­mented x-ray ma­chines, ETD ma­chines and ma­te­rial han­dling equip­ment. We will soon of­fer screen­ing and pal­leti­sa­tion fa­cil­i­ties in col­lab­o­ra­tion with an ap­proved reg­u­lated agent. For our cus­tomers, we of­fer track-and-trace fa­cil­i­ties through our web­site,” in­formed Mankand.

“We have re­cently re­ceived a lot of en­quiries from air­lines who wish to start their op­er­a­tions from Ahmed­abad. This year, there­fore, we are fo­cussing on fa­cil­i­tat­ing their en­tries into Ahmed­abad by be­com­ing com­pli­ant with their stan­dards in terms of se­cu­rity and

GSEC is also plan­ning to ex­pand the scope of their ser­vices to en­able the air­lines to avoid mul­ti­ple agen­cies.
