3rd SCMPro Warehousing Ecosystem Summit
14th March 2020, Mumbai


We are seeing multiple trends in warehousing. A year after GST, we see increase in warehouse requirements in some sectors. At others, we see consolidation. At one level, there is an increasing need for technology. At other places, we see slow adoption of technology. These conflicting trends have one underlying theme – the necessity to remain a sustainable business. All said, it is time for warehousing professionals to reflect on their business models. And focus on achieving excellence.
