“In a country like India, road freight makes up a majority of the total freight movement and is the largest transportation segment in the country. However, this segment is highly unorganised. This causes challenges for businesses as they face uncertainty in terms of shipment status and integrity and consignment delivery,” Neeraj Bansal, CEO DHL SmarTrucking , told in an interview to Fibre2Fashion.
“There are several contributing factors for the slow adoption rate of technology in the Indian trucking sector. Smaller trucking companies may perceive the cost of logistics technology to be prohibitive; which is not always true. In addition, while there is a lot of potential in adopting new and emerging technologies, the sector has a lot of local players who do not have the know-how to deploy them. For example, in the cold chain segment, inadequate technology adoption limits the reliability and security that logistics partners can provide to businesses.”
DHL SmarTrucking was created in response to the changing market conditions in the Indian logistics industry. Both offerings-DHL SmarTrucking for dry logistics and DHL SmarTrucking Coldchain for temperature-controlled logistics use state-of-the-art technologies to deliver not just shipments, but an unmatched shipping experience to their customers across sectors, including e-commerce, retail, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, automotive and consumer durables.
DHL SmarTrucking offers automated solutions using IoT-enabled sensors which help with route optimisation and minimise fuel wastage, by reducing instances of long and wrong routes, and avoiding routes with heavy traffic. Within a few months of launch, the company has more than 700 trucks on the road and it plans to add 10,000 SmarTrucks on the road and hire 20,000 drivers in the next 10 years. At the moment it is running pan-India operations using a network of 21 SmartHubs spread across the country. With its extensive pan-India road network, a dedicated team of personnel, and a fully-owned fleet of containers, the company is able to meet the growing demands from the textile sector.
Globally, DPDHL is making further progress with its ambitious environmental strategy. It has improved the carbon efficiency index by two index points to 32 per cent against the 2007 baseline. In doing so, DPDHL has exceeded its target for 2017 by one index point. On the path towards performing 70 per cent of its first-and last-mile deliveries with clean technologies by 2025, the group is now at around 28 per cent. (PC)
