SIAM automotive logistics conclave

Automotive logistics conclave

The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) held a two-day automotive logistics conclave, in New Delhi on August 1 and 2. 
The conclave, themed ‘Need for optimisation of Resources’ witnessed rigorous discussions between logistics heads, suppliers and OEM heads, to find solutions to optimise resources and mitigate gaps to facilitate industry growth.
Setting the tone for the conclave at the inaugural session,  Mr Prem K Verma, Chairman, SIAM Logistics Group and Project Leader - Distribution & Logistics Strategy - Tata Motors, said, “Our vision is to facilitate need-based interactions for developing a better understanding of automotive logistics and their requirements."
He further added, “The automotive industry wants to contribute over 12 per cent to India’s GDP as a part of our vision for the Automotive Mission Plan (2016-26).” Concluding his address, he asserted, "Undoubtedly, the cost of logistics in India is high, especially in automotive logistics where 96 pc of transportation is done on roads. To cut down costs, we need to eliminate the waste in the system to make it cost-competitive in the market. The government needs to develop a policy and bring adequate infrastructure to promote multi-modal transportation in India." 
Delivering the keynote address, Mr N Sivasailam, Special Secretary, Department of Logistics, Ministry of Commerce, said, “It is time we start prioritising freight, for which I have also requested a policy shift. We need a system to track cargo shipments, by having improved timetables to monitor the incoming and outgoing of the ships. We also need to work closely with the Railway Ministry to make the operations profitable for licences”. 
Concluding the inaugural session, Mr BC Dutta, Vice-President, Hyundai India, urged all the stakeholders to join hands, work together and find solutions to bring the economy back on the track, and help tackle the recession undergoing in the automobile industry. 
The second session of the day talked about optimising outbound logistics and was chaired by Mr Prem K Verma. Highlighting the changes in the automotive sector, Mr Arun Malhotra, ex-MD, Nissan India, said: "GST and the e-way Bill have brought immense changes in the system”. E-way Bill, he said, is a bottleneck that needs to be removed. He suggested that when policies are being designed, there should be someone who addresses the challenges. 
Mr Umesh Bhanot, MD, APL Logistics Vascor Automotive Pvt Ltd said in his presentation, "When we talk about optimising outbound logistics, it is important to recognise its various dimensions like finished vehicle logistics and after-market parts”. 
Highlighting the importance of collaboration of all stakeholders, Mr Jasjit Sethi, CEO, TCI Supply Chain solutions, asserted, “For optimising outbound logistics, we should consider LoT size (sell few, buy few), order to replenishment, mint condition, cost of logistics, network design, medium to lon- term plans, and carrier optimisation. The only way to win is by working together and respecting the ecosystem.”
