Logistics in all forms plays a significant role in a global economic scenario, often ranging between 4-12 per cent of the country’s GDP, between the developed and the developing countries. The percentage of losses and wastage are often very significant in the overall logistics process, in most markets.

Customers even today rely more on "trial & error" methods, rather than "tried & tested" well-planned logistics processes, due to a huge gap in the intellectual capital related to the logistics business. There is vast opportunity in the consultancy business related to a focused procurement plan and logistics planning; wherein customers expect a partner to guide them in their supply chain needs while allowing themselves to focus and direct their manpower on their core businesses.
