Automotive supply chain: A paradigm shift in the making?
ITLN organised the sixth edition of the AutoSCM Summit in Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Pune on December 6, 2022.
Presented by Frankfurt Airport, the networking event had Dachser as Supporting Partner, Wiz Freight and Esquire Express as Associate Partners and C.H. Robinson as Gold Partner.
The event attracted the best minds in the country and beyond to discuss and debate the evolution, pain points and future of the automotive supply chain industry.
The attendees and speakers included OEMs, component manufacturers, logistics companies, freight forwarders, airports, airlines and EV stakeholders.
Binu George, Dachser: “All we need is the right solution provider. The shipper needs to understand who performed in the last decade and particularly the last two years.”
Deepesh Kuruppath, CargoFL: "Enterprises go for local transporter to become cost-efficient, but they engage with big transporters to become process-efficient. What if we can make these local transporters process-efficient using tech.”
Mandar Vaidya, ZF Group: “We are actively looking at what buffer can be taken out and what needs to remain. There is an effort to go back to JIT but we still keep some JICs. It is a mixed model.”
Sanjay Suranglikar, TATA AutoComp Systems: “We always integrated the new software with the SAP so that we can have a common thread in the backend which allows different systems to communicate with each other.”
Srinivas Mahankali, Blockedge Technologies: “We have very advanced platforms that enable organisations to implement cloud foundations and data laying, data warehouses and data analytics platforms, cutting their cost and time by almost 80 to 90 percent."
Kshitij Bajaj, Dandera Ventures: “Vehicles are going to be modular in nature where from one utility to the other all you have to do is change a couple of parts. Swap it out and have a completely different vehicle”
