A robust logistics set up that will smoothen and hasten the movement of components/spares and vehicles between vendors, factories and eventually to customers, is important for the sector that is a major economic driver. In the post GST world, as auto companies recast their supply chain and logistics plans, India’s auto sector needs to quickly find ways to do business more efficiently. If India has plans to be a serious player on the global auto stage—the Government’s Automotive Mission Plan 2016–26 forecasts a four-fold growth—companies in the industry will need to focus sharply on their core business and leave contract logistics to specialists.
India’s largest automaker, Maruti Suzuki, wants to make five million vehicles in India in the next decade. In this time, the firm is preparing to invest as much as INR 200,000 crore in the Indian market to support its vast network of vendors—of all sizes—spread across the country to reach this ambitious target. However, for Maruti and other auto companies, a key cog in the wheel is a robust logistics set up that will smoothen and hasten the movement of components/spares and vehicles between these vendors, the company factories and eventually to customers.
Gearing up for growth
To be sure, this industry’s vitality is key to drive economic growth for India. The sector accounts for 7% of India’s GDP, 45% of manufacturing GDP and employs about 19 million people both directly and indirectly. It contributes around 5% to India’s exports. The Indian auto sector has the potential to generate up to USD 300 billion in annual revenue by 2026, create around 65 million additional jobs and contribute more than 12% to India’s GDP, according to the plan from Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) and the Union Government.
Even then, the sector, which works with over 800 component makers of all shapes and sizes, geographically dispersed across India, needs to find a smoother and faster way of doing business. Up to 15% of an auto company’s revenue is leaked in managing India’s inefficient logistics—it needs an expert to manage its complexities.
