Accelerating sales through an agile supply chain
In an intensely competitive FMCG market, characterised by frequent price wars and eroding margins, we enable our clients to develop a distinctive competitive edge by making their supply chain network leaner and building an efficient distribution network with the least leakages possible.
- Reduced safety stock level: Higher transit time necessitates high safety stock maintenance with the dealers, leading to overstocking, thereby, causing immense detention issues. However, with the transit times provided by us, clients have successfully been able to reduce their safety stock levels by over 50%, resulting in a seamless supply chain network.
- Assured product 'freshness': Our shortest transit time on surface ensures that produce reaches ‘fresh’ from factory to customer as consumers these days are more conscious about the age of the produce since manufacturing than the time left till expiry.
- Greater category fill rate (CFR): Using our fastest and most reliable line haul service, clients have been able to systematically increase their CFR or reduce instances of missed sales, leading to eventual gain of market share.
- Reduced in-transit damages: Our ‘driver relay’ model has improved satisfaction levels amongst the pilots and considerably reduced fatigue amongst them resulting in minimised accidents and theft cases. Furthermore, the minute-by-minute tracking of vehicles and round the clock maintenance facility available at short distances, have all contributed to our success on this front.
- Optimised working capital: Reduction in transit time by 50-70% and reduction in safety stocks at the warehouses have resulted in the release of millions of rupees otherwise blocked in working capital for all our clients.
