Logistics and Servicing is not a core competency of GUSTI but it is still a required and vital function. GUSTI will outsource to global leaders in Logistics and Servicing. With Government participation and permits, GUSTI aims to operate on the lines of a ‘free port’.
The primary success factor for this lies in setting up a sourcing hub. This will be a virtual database for industrial manufacturing products which will be used to facilitate the sourcing and delivery of any piece of equipment a member of GUSTI needs to get operational and producing. GUSTI envisions this as a world–class service with time–bound service level agreements (SLAs) for the sourcing and delivery of equipment.
The long-term vision for GUSTI’s Logistics & Servicing function is aimed at having free access to a global hub, much along the lines of a free port. Location-wise, Bangalore is ideally situated within India and strategically located to serve Western Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, all of Asia, and the Asia-Pacific-Japan region. Bangalore also offers a vast network of rail, road and air connectivity for commerce and transportation. Complete connectivity, accessibility and visibility will be provided through GUSTI’s associated supply chain system.
The tremendous scope of this business opportunity requires an experienced leader in this field to handle and manage this from the start.
