Pattern four:
Integration and collaboration are central to strong supply chains

In India, supply chains should be able to respond to fluctuations in demand and supply. Demanding customers, the need to serve a segmented market, and regulatory uncertainty add to the complexity.

Companies looking for sustainable revenue growth in India are asking:

  • How can we design resilient supply chains to navigate challenges, such as an overburdened infrastructure and variable tax rates?
  • Can our supply chains deliver quality and consistent service across the vast market?
  • Acquire supply chain flexibility that comes from partnering and collaborating more with suppliers and accommodating front-end channel operators.
  • Ultimately, this boils down to trust and working together with stakeholders on shared goals and objectives.
  • This approach can help to more effectively and efficiently navigate infrastructural and regulatory challenges.
