We are lucky to have some of the large MNCs based out of In­dia. Com­pa­nies like Ama­zon are putting up ware­houses and try­ing to repli­cate some of those pro­cesses, sys­tems, au­to­ma­tion in other coun­tries. If any in­no­va­tion or tech­nol­ogy gets rolled out, Re­turn on In­vest­ment (ROI) has to be dis­cussed.

There could be us­age of space in two ways; one where you are get­ting it and then dis­tribut­ing it in B2C space. Two ap­pli­ca­tions have a dif­fer­ent kind of ROIs and pay­backs. So if few sys­tems can be placed which en­ables them to re­duce the num­ber of wrong ship­ments then the cost sav­ing is hu­mungous. En­ergy con­ser­va­tion around re­frig­er­a­tion and light­en­ing can give nec­es­sary ROI. Rep­re­sent­ing Phillips, I would like to say, if you want to set up a ware­house with all the con­straints dis­cussed, we would like to come in as a part­ner and see how we can make a fa­cil­ity more ef­fi­cient.
