MAN­AG­ING DI­REC­TOR, SAF­EX­PRESS

Q How would you de­scribe the cur­rent port­fo­lio of lo­gis­tics ser­vices of Saf­ex­press?

Saf­ex­press of­fers so­lu­tions through its fully-in­te­grated sur­face, air and mul­ti­modal in­fra­struc­ture, and al­lied fa­cil­i­ties. We cover all 707 dis­tricts through dis­tri­bu­tion net­work of over 620 des­ti­na­tions. A fleet of over 5,500 Gps-en­abled ve­hi­cles op­er­ates round the year on more than 1,000 de­fined routes across In­dia de­liv­er­ing around 80 mil­lion pack­ages to over 5,000 cor­po­rates. 3PL so­lu­tions sup­ported by a to­tal ware­hous­ing space of over 13 mil­lion sqft across In­dia range from de­sign­ing, im­ple­ment­ing to op­er­at­ing the com­plete sup­ply chain of com­pa­nies re­sult­ing in re­duced cost, stream­lin­ing of de­liv­ery sched­ules and en­abling or­ga­ni­za­tions to fo­cus on core com­pe­ten­cies. Safeair is the air cargo ser­vice which pro­vides mul­ti­modal con­nec­tiv­ity in as­so­ci­a­tion with air taxi op­er­a­tors like Jet Air­ways, In­digo, Air In­dia and Spice­jet.

Q What are some of the chal­lenges and ex­pec­ta­tions of cus­tomers in the sup­ply chain & lo­gis­tics space?

Ma­jor chal­lenges faced by cus­tomers in­clude in­ad­e­quate com­mu­ni­ca­tion, slow sup­ply chain ve­loc­ity and low rate of tech­nol­ogy adop­tion by the in­dus­try. Cus­tomers seek real-time in­for­ma­tion of move­ment and stor­age
