Agility, innovation, efficiency, predictability and customer satisfaction are all markers of a successful new-age digital organisation. And they all depend on an efficient supply chain and logistics management.

India is exploring its opportunities to become a fully 21st-century digital economy. The country is taking plenty of initiatives to promote economic digitalization and the countless new startups are illustrative of this success. But even though India has made great progress in the past two years, it still has a long way to go.

As India feels increasing pressure from strong digital economies such as the USA and China, the Indian government decided to invest massively in internet accessibility and digital growth. The country’s existing challenges can only be overcome with entrepreneurial determination, which is spreading at a quick pace. New business models, digital platforms and data-based services are shaping a new Indian market. Rapid change is occurring not only on an economic, but also on a social scale. digi logi2

Though companies across the spectrum know they need to start their digital transformation journeys, very few have actually managed to do so. According to IDG’s 2018 State of Digital Business Transformation report, 89% of enterprises have plans to adopt a digital-first business strategy. However, only 38% of traditional enterprises have one. The numbers are slightly more bullish when it comes to startups, with 55% having a digital strategy in place.

Full Truck Load (FTL) transport in India benefited greatly from this demonetization. The sector reported a 23% month-on-month revenue growth after the implementation in December 2016. Cashless transaction tools such as FASTags and diesel cards, a direct result from India Stack, resulted in significant savings on capital expenses for truck owners who associated themselves with such platforms.

Tax reform:

Besides the drastic demonetization reformations, India’s government implemented the largest tax reform ever at a single time. A complex constellation of 17 different tax systems was replaced by one transparent GST-system (Goods and Services Tax). More than 1 million businesses registered within the first month. This created digital data availability, resulting in new opportunities to open up extra sources of lending money to SMEs.

The challenge of logistics:

It is not uncommon to see traditional organisations face logistics and supply chain challenges such as low transparency of fleet movement, un-optimised routes, fuel wastage, vehicle breakdown, irregular vehicle maintenance, inability to track goods’ movement/delivery, driver retention and failure to employ actionable intel to make smart business decisions. Further, linking banking services to make and receive payments during the logistics lifecycle is a major bottleneck.

Unfortunately ..most companies have legacy systems that create many hurdles in the way of seamless operations. The good news is that new-age digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Internet of Things (IoT) are helping to disrupt traditional systems and ensure end-to-end optimum logistics in companies of the future.
