Role of 3PL Service Provider in E-commerce Logistics
In India, e-commerce industry is growing rapidly and hence logistics requirements are constantly changing with the evolving business environment....
Supply chain consulting refers to advisory services that aid inventory and administrative optimization. The same includes advisory services such as production planning, demand estimation, procurement planning, inventory management control and warehouse design.
The market is a niche segment in the logistics industry and is highly organized. The barriers to entry in this industry are medium to high. This market is expected to be valued at around US$0.3 billion as of Fiscal 2021 (Source: RedSeer Report) and is expected to grow fast in the coming years as businesses are looking at the supply chain as a strategic moat and not a cost centre and industry players are increasingly looking for an umbrella service provider – experts and SCM consultants who can work as advisors and implementors with the necessary expertise.
The SCM consulting companies in India cater to key sectors: Automotive, chemical, consumer goods, fashion and apparel, logistics service providers, manufacturing, and healthcare retail. COVID-19 has impacted some end-use sectors negatively because of the cash crunch in the industry, while other sectors have seen a surge in demand as the sectors (ex-healthcare) were positively impacted by COVID-19.
