A sys­tem­atic chain for lo­gis­tics

J.K. Arora, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor, Cargo Movers, shares, “Skilled and well trained man­power is must for ef­fi­cient sup­ply chain man­age­ment else there shall be mis­takes which can in­cur losses. Skill im­parts nec­es­sary train­ing that can en­com­pass fruit­ful de­vel­op­ment for the sec­tor.” “In in­ter­na­tional wa­ters, time and ex­pense are the main com­po­nents. We have seen how er­rors in ship­ment re­sult in a big mess. There should be a main­tained check­lists in­clud­ing time du­ra­tion along with steps to en­sure ef­fort­less per­for­mance. Com­pa­nies are us­ing soft­ware world­wide to have ef­fi­cient sup­ply chain man­age­ment with all ex­port-lo­gis­tics freight for­warder and im­porter in a chain sys­tem. There is a heavy penalty from gov­ern­ment if not ad­hered to rules prop­erly,” he adds.

Skills nec­es­sary for ef­fi­cacy

Amit Tan­don, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor, Asia Ship­ping In­dia, states, “With the JIT (Just in Time) con­cept in maan­age­ment of costly raw ma­te­ri­als, pack­ing ma­te­ri­als and ef­fi­cient man­age­ment of pro­duc­tion cy­cles to meet vari­a­tions in de­mand pat­tern, mak­ing sup­ply chain man­age­ment more ef­fi­cient con­trib­utes to op­ti­mi­sa­tion of ma­te­rial stocks lev­els by fore­cast­ing and match­ing with the de­mands from pro­duc­tion man­age­ment. There­fore, en­gage­ment of skilled man­power in all func­tions is essen­tial. The costs in­curred for the en­gage­ment of the skilled man­power for the sup­ply chain man­age­ment con­trib­utes to the over­all well-be­ing and ef­fi­cient man­age­ment of ma­te­ri­als man­age­ment func­tion, and can­not, there­fore, be clas­si­fied as ex­pen­sive or waste­ful.”

Best Road Freight For­ward­ing Com­pany – Nepal & North–East In­dia (North & East 2016) : Sugam Pari­va­han

Kaus­tubh Mit­tal, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor, Sugam Pari­va­han, says,“Sup­ply chain man­age­ment with avail­abil­ity of skilled man­power, sup­ported by tech­nol­ogy strives to keep the prod­uct live by as­sur­ing trans­parency, in­for­ma­tion, and in­tact speedy de­liv­ery to the end user. Skilled man­power is the need for ef­fi­cient sup­ply chain man­age­ment, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing fast de­vel­op­ment to cope up with rapid change in de­mand from end users. For some it may be ex­pen­sive in­vest­ment to do, at the same time one has to re­alise the im­por­tance of such in­vest­ment on skilled man­power in this fluc­tu­at­ing and de­mand­ing sce­nario. The most se­vere and im­me­di­ate re­quire­ment for skill de­vel­op­ment is found to be in trans­porta­tion and ware­hous­ings sec­tor. The speed at which ef­fi­ciency and qual­ity im­prove­ment is re­quired will con­se­quently call for a swift de­vel­op­ment of ca­pa­bil­i­ties from lo­gis­tics ser­vice providers.”
