Getting chemical logistics right in a digital future is a critical imperative as it will distinguish the winners from losers. As chemicals are key to India’s industrial and manufacturing transformation, digitization would be key to both the chemical industry and its future logistics transformation and competitiveness. Connecting buyers, suppliers, transporters, and third-party logistics providers through a robust digitized platform to collaborate and conduct business will be a game changer.

The time has come for the chemical logistics industry to evolve and transition from basic automation and spreadsheets to fully digitalized operations in order not just to leapfrog ahead but also create efficiency and bottom-line value for themselves as well as the clients and customers they serve.

Customer requirements need to bring greater efficiency in chemical logistics operation, profitability and competitiveness, goods movement, warehouse availability, schedules at transit-terminals, information logistics on supply chain, and others. And not to forget, digitalisation’s sustainability impact is tremendous.
