For an industry-leading player like Avvashya CCI, what this means is multiple opportunities to collaborate, create competitive advantage and offer new-age, digitally-enabled solutions with transformation across five critical areas.
New projects, new possibilities
Bolstering global business supply chains for marquee customers across the country is no easy feat. Having successfully rolled out 50 Lakh sq. ft. of world-class facilities for diverse product categories ranging from groceries to chemicals to e-commerce, the pie is set to get bigger.

As a result, customers can count on unmatched connectivity across key consumption sectors and industrial clusters in India.
Expansion into diverse sectors
If you want to be a force to reckon with in the industry, it is important to constantly expand one’s portfolio of services and venture into newer markets and sectors. In this respect, Avvashya CCI has proved its capabilities by offering end-to-end supply chain solutions across the whole spectrum covering Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals, Automotive and Spare Part Logistics, Electronics, FMCG, E-commerce, Food and Groceries.
While the organization already has rich experience in helping leading E-commerce players ramp-up activities during seasonal sales and festive seasons, it has turned crisis into opportunity by excelling in warehousing for Groceries and successfully adapting to changing consumer behaviour where non-large and white goods E-commerce deliveries are giving way to Groceries and other products that meet customers’ needs at a hyper-local level.
Building resilience, adding value
“If the recent global pandemic and the constantly evolving business environment has made evident, it is the need to be resilient and flexible. Since this approach has been integral to the way we do business, we could successfully help a number of key customers meet demand and supply requirements for essential goods and products, pharmaceuticals, groceries, etc. during the pandemic. They rely on us because we deliver excellence and their confidence and trust which in turn motivates us to do even better”, says Anoop Chauhan, Chief Operating Officer – Supply Chain, Avvashya CCI.
There have been months where the organization’s performance level has increased over 200% and even touching 300% at times, as compared to the average past performance.
Complete safety and adherence to all precautionary protocols is a given for Avvashya CCI. Especially while handling Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals or Food products, the most stringent Indian and international standards and safety benchmarks are complied with. All staff members, as also drivers, handlers and equipment operators participate in regular training and workshops. Even COVID-19 safety and care has now become a mandatory part of tool box meetings.

In areas like spare part logistics where Just-in-time inventory determines the level of competitive advantage in swiftly meeting after-market requirements, integrating the right digital technology significantly enhances performance effectiveness in terms of order to delivery time (OTD) and delivered in full on time (DIFOT).
Avvashya CCI focuses on technology that empowers human capital and enhances manpower productivity by integrating voice picking, using ring scanners, etc. This consequently also reduces inventory holding costs.
