Q3. Case Study

Road freight services of India was started by Mr Khanna in 1990 and has grown from a one road freight operation to a fleet serving 200 plus shippers in west zone of India. The Company serves the automotive industry by providing inbound transportation to their warehouses and plants. It has strategic alliance relationship with three large automakers and is the exclusive trucking company for a number of auto suppliers. Mr. Khanna as Promoter of the company is willing to adopt latest technologies, IT system and management techniques. He was about to call strategic planning meeting with his senior executives, he was pondering over recent trends in the logistics field. He also knew that to retain current admirable position in market, his company must continue to be innovative and provide the services based on customers need.During recent past three years, the company has witnessed increased competition. The other logistics companies that provide rush deliveries have made significant inroads in the market where just-in-time management system mandate, VMI inventory system, minimal raw material inventories, guaranteed deliveries and vendor penalties for late deliveries. The perplex trend to Mr Khanna is the growing vertical integration of road freight companies into other logistics services. A number of other companies have started warehousing divisions to provide sorting, kitting (putting pieces together to make up a kit), and cross-docking (moving freight across a dock to a waiting truck). Other carriers are adding third party logistics divisions to manage a shipper/receiver’s transportation and storage activities. Finally a few trucking companies have started air and ocean freight divisions, freight-forwarding services and logistics information services. He also recognizes that this vertical integration of trucking companies is a result of customer growing demands. In addition, shippers are reducing number of vendors in transportation suppliers, being used and asking the minimal vendors to provide a wider range of products and value added services. After considerable thought, company decides that only viable long term strategy is to become a full service logistics provider. If current status of company is continued, it will greatly impair the growth and profit potentials of the company.
