Demand driven Value Network Integrative Improvement System - can be defined as a standard system that simultaneously and interdependently drives operational improvement across all functions and processes Three key structural components Maturity- and process-based transformation Functional integration Sustainability through a three-tier system
Integrative Improvement System Maturity- and process-based transformationTransferring process improvement ownership from technical experts to front-line teams requires structural reorganization around lateral processes. Functional integration The integrative approach is an organization primarily designed around processes, products, and customers, not functions. Sustainability through a three-tier system Sustainable improvement does not result from the mere application of improvement tools and processes for example Lean, Six Sigma, autonomous maintenance, one point lessons etc. Sustainable change requires a three-tier system – management principles, operating systems, and tools

Packaging & technology Despite a global recession, emphasis is on innovation in design, choice of materials, processing, and life cycle logistics. The future of packaging is in sustainability. Environmentally conscious decisions are being prevalent today and more and more importance given to it being environmentally friendly. Walmart continues to be on the forefront of sustainable packaging in the retail arena. Although the retail giant has achieved many of its environmental goals such as plastic bag reduction, it continues to be unable to eliminate PVC from private- label packaging. As sustainable packaging evolves, Walmart will continue to strive in achieving its PVC elimination goals. Many other large companies are following suit including Proctor & Gamble. Very recently, they announced plans to use sugarcane-derived plastic on selected packaging for its Pantene Pro-V, Covergirl and Max Factor brands to increase its sustainability credentials. The strategy by P&G is completely consumer-driven.
Transportation • The road freight segment in India is gradually evolving from being a pure transportation business to a complete, service-based, end-to- end logistics solutions industry. • Increase in competition and private investments happening getting more players • Many players have tied up with large clients, particularly in the automotive, pharmaceutical, and retail sector to provide complete supply chain solutions. • Large fleet operators have been looking at providing multi-model logistics solutions via a combination of rail and road network and exploring opportunities in this area through: (a) JVs / partners with container cargo movers (b) long-term rake hire contracts with the railways.
Transportation - ShippingThe skills on fleet management are centered in port operations,warehousing and cost effectiveness, but also on how to cope withincidents, thus realizing safe and environmental friendly operations
Transportation - Air RPK billions Source: World Market Forecast
Transportation - RailwaysThe importance of railways to port logistics creates a dependence of theports upon highly reliable railway service.i) Lower transportation costii) Higher reliabilityiii) Relatively safer and secureiv) Very environmentally friendlyv) Reduced accidents.The freight segment accounts for roughly two thirds of railway’srevenues.
Transportation -Emerging conceptsThe Companies in logistics for procurement, manufacturing, and sales,aiming to reduce CO2 emissions and costs. For example, the monthlytransportation volume of products and parts from China to Japan isenough to fill 400 40-foot containers. To the Americas and Europe,products and parts of a volume equivalent to 1,000 40-foot containersare shipped from China each month. Given these volumes, efficiencyimprovement in logistics is an important issue in promoting businesson a global scale.Importance is now given to cargo carrying efficiency through reviewingpackaging materials and mixed packing, modal shifts amongwarehouses, direct deliveries to customers, and by optimizingtransportation routes through the introduction of the milk run system.The aim is to reduce wastage related to packaging materials,transportation, space, trans-shipment, and storage.
WarehousingOne of the most important element ofsupply chain management iswarehousing. The proper storage andtracking of inventory ensures thatdelivery times are met and assetmanagement Services costs arereduced.Warehousing facilities are completelyequipped to handle all kinds of cargo.They are well guarded and spacious,provide complete safety of the goods.Keeping the goods intact andimpervious to any kind of damage.Outsourcing the warehouses hasbecome more and more competitive

Today letting out warehouses are building one has become lucrative business
SCM Future Segment customers based on the service needs Analysis can be used to segment customers based on "buying behaviors," and network models can be used to calculate the cost-to- serve of each segment under varying scenarios. Strategic sourcing analyses should be undertaken, followed by the installation of e- procurement software to sustain the savings identified, on an ongoing basis. Supply chain planning technology should be implemented - it is the critical link between supply chain strategy and supply chain operations.
