The 4th Annual Economic Times (ET) Supply Chain Management & Logistics Summit 2017 saw industry forerunners discuss the impact and implementation of GST on the supply chain management & logistics industry. It highlighted the next generation supply chain in India and was centred on the theme 'Gateway to the Future: Building Next Generation Supply Chain'.

The summit brought together the industry’s brightest minds to debate the future of the supply chain that will drive change and deliver transformation. It was attended by manufacturing and supply chain executives from distinguished FMCG, retail, e-commerce, pharma and logistics firms. The power-packed day proved to be a distinctive experience featuring insightful content and networking opportunities. The panellists were optimistic about GST and said that there are many ways in which GST will improve Supply Chain Management (SCM) and logistics in the country.

"Supply chain management & logistics is a powerful and relevant business that forms the bulwark of the economy and this Summit has opened gateways to understand the opportunities and challenges for businesses and the implications of GST," said Deepak Lamba, president, Times Strategic Solutions.

Swatantra Dev Singh, minister of state for transport, Uttar Pradesh, said, "The recent developments in the sphere of supply chain management and logistics have changed the way trade takes place across the country, benefiting end users and businesses."

"Our vision is to have better roads, a better supply chain for the villages as well as we welcome all the logistics and transport traffic passing through or headed to Maharashtra. Our government is different to what has been experienced in the last 15 years, and we look forward to ushering in great change over the next 5 years," said Diwakar Raote, minister of state for transport, Maharashtra.

The summit offered fresh thinking on the opportunities and challenges facing the sector, as well as providing the ideal environment to discuss best practices and trends in global markets, quality, supply chains, talent issues and more. It focussed on skilling the modern workforce, the evolution of the warehousing sector in India and highlighting 5 technologies that will self-orchestrate the supply chain. The panellists also threw light on maximising supply chain revenue, enhancing the customer experience and increasing profits through strategic management of suppliers, logistics and costs. (KD)
