What IWS brought to the in­dus­try

Among the promi­ment shows for the cargo sec­tor, In­dia Ware­hous­ing Show (IWS) 2016 had some old and some new par­tic­i­pants. CARGOTALK spoke to few ex­hibitors to know the cur­rent trends, the prod­ucts that they brought to the show and so­lu­tions they are of­fer

Vi­neet Kanau­jia, Vice Pres­i­dent-Mar­ket­ing, Saf­ex­press ‘Make in In­dia’ is all about pro­duc­tion and man­u­fac­tur­ing and In­dia has be­come a global man­u­fac­tur­ing hub. So lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain will have a big role to play be­cause af­ter all the man­u­fac­tur­ing is done goods need to move to the var­i­ous parts of the coun­try. Tech­nol­ogy is a big en­abler for sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics and act as a strate­gic weapon which de­cide the suc­cess or the fail­ure of any sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics firm. For in­stance, our en­tire net­work is con­nected with ERP, we have ware­house man­age­ment so­lu­tion that we of­fer to the con­sumers and in fact we are linked through ERP to var­i­ous cus­tomers. We are also im­ple­ment­ing bar-cod­ing so­lu­tion on our pack­age level track­ing of con­sign­ment.

Mohan K Jha, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, In­no­va­tive Lo­gis­tics Ser­vice

There are am­ple op­por­tu­ni­ties for sup­ply chain es­pe­cially in terms of on­line re­tail be­cause e-com­merce is highly de­pen­dent on lo­gis­tics and post GST a lot of growth is com­ing up. The in­dus­try is bang­ing on tech­nol­ogy now, for ex­am­ple, track and trace, au­to­mated ware­hous­ing such as RFID, WMS to name a few.

Rahul Sa­gar, AGM-Mar­ket­ing, Maini Group

The show helped us to strengthen Maini’s po­si­tion as com­pre­hen­sive ware­hous­ing so­lu­tion provider. We re­ceived an en­thu­si­as­tic re­sponse from all the busi­ness vis­i­tors for our so­lu­tions. We in­tro­duced Goods Lift in the show. It is an ideal so­lu­tion for stores and mez­za­nine area to trans­port ma­te­rial from one floor to an­other in a multi-level ware­house. With its smooth in­te­gra­tion op­tion with ex­ist­ing stor­age sys­tem and best of safety fea­tures, it was an in­stant at­trac­tion for the vis­i­tors.

Ganesh Ragha­van, Asst. Vice Pres­i­dent & Busi­ness Head, Go­drej Efacec Au­to­ma­tion & Robotics

This ex­hi­bi­tion gave us the op­por­tu­nity to show­case our new so­lu­tions and also a good way to show our pres­ence in the in­tra lo­gis­tics seg­ment. This time we talked about ‘end of line au­to­ma­tion so­lu­tion’ as well as ‘or­der ful­fil­ment’. Hence we are ba­si­cally into AS/RS but we have ven­tured into these two ar­eas also. To­day man­u­fac­tur­ing lo­gis­tics is about 15 per cent of GDP and the ‘Make in In­dia’ ef­fort is plan­ning to take it to 25 per cent.

Atul Khanna, Gen­eral Man­ager In­su­la­tion Divi­sion-PPD, Supreme In­dus­tries

It is a good plat­form to in­ter­act with peo­ple and to un­der­stand the mar­ket sce­nario; we are par­tic­i­pat­ing here on reg­u­lar ba­sis. We rep­re­sented two dif­fer­ent ver­ti­cals– ma­te­rial han­dling wherein we in­tro­duced pal­lets and crates and other was ther­mal in­su­la­tion divi­sion where we are of­fer­ing the ther­mal in­su­la­tion for PEB build­ing.

Ni­rav Doshi, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Nido Ma­chiner­ies

This ex­hi­bi­tion was help­ful in the sense we got quite a few cus­tomers, met in­dus­try ex­perts and vis­i­tors who wanted to know about the in­dus­try. We have been tak­ing part from the last three years. We launched two prod­uct cat­e­gories– a com­plete con­vey­ing au­to­ma­tion line and goods lift or a ver­ti­cal re­cip­ro­cat­ing con­venor.

The ‘Make in In­dia’ cam­paign is go­ing to be very help­ful for the lo­gis­tics in­dus­try; the more you make, the more lo­gis­tics will be re­quired. So, it is very im­por­tant from both users and man­u­fac­turer’s per­spec­tive.

Sch­mitt Gerald, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Fro­nius In­dia

We came for the first time. We have been rep­re­sented in In­dia through L&T since the late 1990s but not with this kind of prod­uct. Ba­si­cally we are into three dif­fer­ent prod­ucts–weld­ing, so­lar en­ergy and bat­tery charg­ing. We started this prod­uct (bat­ter charg­ing) in In­dia. We show­cased our bat­tery charg­ers for fork­lifts or any elec­tric trucks. The tech­nol­ogy used for charg­ing in In­dia is still the first gen­er­a­tion trans­former charg­ers.

Our bat­tery charg­ers are like max­i­mum 20 per cent of the size that is easy to carry around. This bat­tery saves min­i­mum 30 per cent of the en­ergy and more im­por­tantly its bat­tery life would be ex­tended by 25 per cent.
