Di­rec­tor, Min­erva In­te­grated Lo­gis­tics

Post lib­er­al­i­sa­tion, with all the for­eign com­pa­nies set­ting shops in In­dia saw a huge gap in lo­gis­tics and how the In­di­ans were man­ag­ing their sup­ply chain. They slowly trained or forced the In­dian play­ers to use bet­ter in­fra­struc­ture, IT sys­tem and im­ple­mented pro­cesses. Few in­ter­na­tional play­ers also came in to han­dle th­ese cus­tomers in In­dia. Af­ter the ini­tial adap­tion is­sues now, we see lot has changed not only on the thought process but also im­ple­men­ta­tion in the ground level as to how lo­gis­tics is ap­proached. This new aware­ness has also forced the In­dian gov­ern­ment to fo­cus on our lo­gis­tics sec­tor. From a des­ig­na­tion of store keeper, it has achieved the des­ig­na­tion of lo­gis­tics man­ager. Mov­ing from go-downs to full-fledged ware­houses or dis­tri­bu­tion cen­ters is an achieve­ment in it­self.
