March 5, 2021: Bajaj Electricals (BEL) and Mahindra Logistics (MLL) signed a 5-year ₹ 1,000 crore logistics contract for end-to-end redesign and outsourcing of Bajaj Electricals’ entire logistics, with the twin objectives of achieving enhanced & industry-best service levels, coupled with a logistics cost saving in excess of 25 percent.

Working together, MLL has developed for BEL a fully redesigned and consolidated logistics network, with storage optimisation, transportation management and inventory movement through technology, best practice and automation.

“At the heart of the network, there will be two large ultra-modern mega-warehouses in Delhi and Mumbai, with latest technology, automation and skill-building, enhanced by environmentally conscious, greener & sustainable warehouse practices. This network will further operate fully IT-enabled fulfilment centres from which BEL’s dealers, distributors, customers will enjoy market-leading delivery lead times,” said the release.

As part of the solution, MLL will be deploying a mix of dedicated long-haul fleets and local distribution trucks, enabled by the latest tracking technology and control tower operations. There will also be a transition towards sustainable logistics using electric delivery trucks from EDel by Mahindra Logistics.

Anuj Poddar, executive director, Bajaj Electricals, said, "At Bajaj Electricals, we have been actively working towards various strategic initiatives to enhance value for our customers and other stakeholders. This collaboration with MLL is one such key initiative and I am confident that it will help transform our logistics, help us serve our customers efficiently, strengthen our competitiveness and also drive improved margins.

Rampraveen Swaminathan, CEO & MD, Mahindra Logistics, said “I believe what we are aiming to do for BEL is truly unique and exceptional; enhancing service levels to their customers significantly, while simultaneously driving down costs . I don’t think this would be possible without the extensive use of technology - across network design, warehouse management and transport optimisation and control. Adapting our learnings from disparate industry verticals allowed us to create an innovative solution for the consumer durables and electronics business leveraging our reach, know-how and tech investments in equal parts.”

This association is a major end-to-end outsourcing of an entire logistics by a leading Indian business group. Bajaj Electricals and Mahindra Logistics will continue to seek areas of logistics collaboration across businesses as a means of achieving competitive advantage and cost optimisation.
