2007- The Year that was from a India Supply Chain standpoint December 31, 2007Posted by Ramnath Rangaswamy in Blogroll, Business, Emerging Markets, India, Indian Economy, Logistics, Supply Chain.
The year that was- 2007
This is the year when India signed the Trans-Asian Railway agreement in June 2007. Private train operators completed a full year of operations.
Modern retail chains, like Big Bazaar and Reliance Retail began making their presence felt in India. Reliance Fresh stores were sprouting and many of them were closed, because of protests.
India was ranked 39th as per the world bank LPI rating . I would like to see India improve it’s rank.
What are my wishes for 2008
In 2008 I would like to see more companies begin to think of supply chain as a key competitive advantage. I would like to see them use S&OP processes in India, drive waste out of the supply chain and increasing capability of the supply chain team members in organizations.
I would like to see more supply chain articles appear in the newspapers and magazines.
Wish you all a Very Happy, Prosperous and Sucessful 2008!
To quote the Thirukural, on the passage of time,
“Though it seems a harmless gauge of time, a day [ or in this case a year],
To those who fathom its form, is a saw steadily cutting the tree of life.”
