IIM Shillong holds e-symposium on logistics management

By Newmai News

SHILLONG, July 12 - The Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Centre for Policy Research & Analysis under the aegis of IIM Shillong on Saturday hosted an e-symposium on Logistics Management under the e-Symposia Series on Emergent North East India: Strategic and Developmental Imperatives.

Chairman of the Board of Governors, IIM Shllong Shishir Bajoria while welcoming the participants said, �Logistics is the key for success of anything. This could be very sophisticated with computers running dedicated programs or something as rudimentary as the Mumbai Dabbawalas who provide a great service to the entire working population of Mumbai. Be it in countries or companies, logistics is vital and strategic.� He also mentioned about the examples such as the US network of highways which have helped build the success story of the country�s industrial positioning.

�As it stands today, the region with its abundance has a major problem though lack of logistical support for it to harness the bounty that it has.� He also expressed hope in projects such as Bharatmala Pariyojana and the Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport which he felt will go a long way in creating a real value chain for the region.

Congratulating IIM Shillong on its delivery of business, management and innovation leadership, Union Minister of Road Transport Nitin Gadkari said through video, �I strongly believe that innovation, entrepreneurship, science, technology, research skills and successful practices and conversion of knowledge into wealth is the future for our country. I believe that you have a relatable responsibility to oversee the socio-economic growth of the region. This can only be achieved through cooperation, coordination and communication with stakeholders of the region.�

He rue the country�s extensive import requirement despite the presence of minerals setting copper, aluminium, gold, and coal as examples, Gadkari felt that impetus is on management institutes to contribute management strategies and solutions by comprehensively assessing the strengths and weaknesses related to industrial upliftment.

Speaking specifically on logistics management, Gadkari opined the need to augment water transport while citing its cost effectiveness as compared to road or railway mode of transportation while sharing his insights on possibility of boosting Ro-Ro and Ropax water travel mode for easy connectivity, and cutting short distance coverage using the mighty Brahmaputra.

He also said that unless innovative transportation models are executed, high logistic management cost will remain.
