Logistics is increasingly becoming a strategic source of competitive advantage with the increase in global production sharing, shortening of product life cycles and intensification of global competition. In this highly competitive business environment, the quality of logistics has assumed greater significance influencing firms’ decisions such as which country to locate in, which suppliers to buy from or which consumer markets to enter. This has lead to many companies outsourcing supply-chain services, commonly called 3PL (Third party logistics). Some of the top logistic companies in India like CTC freight carriers private limited, Atlas Logistics, DHL, NTL Logistics Plus have a very efficient logistic system and provide all kinds of services like Sea Freight, Air Freight , Trucking Services, Cargo Handling, Break bulk cargo not only for domestic purpose but even for international shipments. This helps companies to focus on their core activities like production etc.
In the present era of tough competition market wars are shifting from media to the retailer's shelf and even directly to the customers. Coke, Pepsi, Hyundai, HLL, Godrej, TATA, Bajaj, etc, derive immense strength from their well-established distribution networks. In fact India is becoming the auto hub of the world and big logistic companies and even Govt. of India and Indian railways are especially targeting the auto industry to get more involved in the effective use of resources by entering into Public-Private partnerships so that there is overall savings to all the parties involved. Logistics is the only department of a company that is in direct contact with the customers. So, the customer perceives the delivery channels as the representatives of the company and it becomes the prime responsibility of the channel members to deliver the services that keep the customers satisfied.

Interesting summation there Shams. A quick question though, has Walmart been able to start business in India? Or resistance from the people still remains strong?

A friend of mine from India who works with me in leading IT firm told me that Walmart may create huge employment there but people would remain employees forever. No one think about to become employer. Entrepreneurship would be highly impacted. So, its matter of controversy will not be solved with ease. It has already backed up so many arguments.

Wal- Mart is the world’s largest corporation and it is one among the biggest private employer of America. The potential effects of FDI in retail include an increase in imports, price pressure on Indian producers and yes, It will generate huge employment over there.

Re: Logistics in India

As more major corporations establishes themselves in the growing Indian market, logistics needs would grow with it. One of the challenges in logistics in India is the inadequate road infrastructure that drives logistics cost upwards. One of the most effective transportation system in India is it's accessible rail systems that makes up for road infrastructure. India would prosper with an improved road infrastructure.
