Scaling up the Supply Chain Ecosystem to further Global Economic Growth on June 26th, New Delhi
23 June 2019

The past few years have witnessed a rapid growth in the supply chain management function with a focus on advanced planning processes, such as analytical demand planning or integrated sales and operations planning (S&OP), which have become established business processes in many companies. While logistics has often been outsourced to third-party logistics providers, wherein the supply-chain function ensures that operations are well-integrated, from suppliers through to customers, with decisions on cost, inventory, and customer service made from an end-to-end perspective rather than by each function in isolation. The supply function is now so important that large manufacturers have started working on an in-house logistics model which would cater to their demand and supply chain.

DHL Presents The Economic Times Supply Chain & Logistics Summit 2019, powered by Future Supply Chain, which is scheduled on 26th June in Hotel Hyatt Regency, New Delhi. The summit’s partners include LiladharPasoo, Anaplan, Maersk, and Infor, with PwC as the knowledge partner.

Prasad Shidhaye, Director, India, Deliver Asia Pacific, Supply Chain Johnson & Johnson stated, “Fast Moving Change Is Here…And Customers Aren’t Just Buying Products…They Are Buying Experiences. Customer Experiences are the customer’s perception with supplier’s employees, channels, systems & products. Leading global companies recognize that their customers are often more influenced by their supply chain experiences than other types of interactions.”

Krishan K. Batra, President & CEO, ISM-INDIA said, ‘To manage the supply chain as a strategic asset, it is important to step back and consider what makes up this asset. Unlike traditional assets a company fully owns, the supply chain is both a direct and an indirect asset, much broader and more complex than just its internal component. It is rightly said that in today’s’ competitive world it is not the companies but supply chain competes. Hence there is a strong need to treat Supply Chain as a Strategic Asset.”

Batra, President & CEO, ISM-INDIA; Saurabh Jain, Partner - Operations & Supply Chain Consulting, PWC; Dr.Rakesh Sinha, Global Head - Supply Chain, Manufacturing & IT Godrej Consumer Products;  Dr. Ravi Prakash Mathur, Senior Director - Head of Logistics and Supply Chain Excellence, Dr.Reddy’s Laboratories; Prasad Shidhaye, Director, India, Deliver Asia Pacific, Supply Chain Johnson & Johnson; Roger Lee, Vice Chairman, Asia Pacific Logistics Federation (APLF) Director, Singapore Institute of Materials Management (SIMM); Jagadeesh Kunchey, Vice President, Supply chain & Logistics, ITC; Shridhar Kulkarni, Senior Director (Logistics, Distribution and Transportation) India Region, PepsiCo; Pradeep Banerjee - Executive Director - Supply Chain, HUL; Rajesh Mehta, Executive Director, LiladharPasoo.

The Supply Chain and Logistic sector is the backbone of the economy, providing an efficient, cost-effective flow of goods on which other commercial sectors depend. With India looking to cement its position among the pantheon of major global economies, Supply Chain 4.0 is going to play a major role in achieving the goal.
