Collaboration with digitalisation
Log-hub and 3SC have joined hands to enable seamless service offerings to identify and implement the savings potential of the new Indian tax regime.
With the objective of digital B2B market place for warehousing; Log-hub AG from Switzerland and the 3SC from India are now collaborating in the Indian market. Both companies are technology based and offer advanced analytics based transportation and warehousing solutions. Both the companies provide complete supply chain management services in terms of planning and execution throughout India. Their transportation and warehouse network is rendered by a control tower set up of more than 200 experts and the digital marketplace for warehousing space. Complementary to the order fulfillment both partners offer a variety of predictive and prescriptive analytical services including demand profiling and forecasting, supply chain network design, vehicle route planning, load and packaging optimisation.
“Due to implementation of the new GST tax system (goods and service tax), the dominance of decentralised local storage will be diminishing and regional or nationwide logistics locations will gain more importance. Nevertheless, the ongoing combination of multiple complex tax systems as well as transit times at the local borders makes it essential to have an in-depth know-how of local tax regimes while redefining the supply chain networks”, says Rabiya Gill, India Manager, Loghub. “There is no Indian competitor that can offer the depth and breadth plus global experience and neutrality that Log-hub AG and 3SC Solutions together offer to the market”, states Lalit Das, Founder, 3SC.
In the mid-term, more changes in the tax system are being expected, so flexibility and agility of new solutions will be a key factor to allow the realisation of future savings. A fair number of multinational players have started changing their logistics network in India but midsized players lack behind due to a deficit of resources or inflexibility of existing supplier contracts or own investments.
