REIMAGINING LOGISTICS WITH PASSION AND TECHNOLOGY
Written by- Indranil Roy
“Whether it’s building a better business or going to war, you win through best logistics practices”.
Every enterprise whose business requires the movement and management of goods needs a holistic logistics partner. While on the surface, logistics is considered to be about storing and transportation of products, deep inside – it’s much diverse. A logistics partner liaisons and negotiates, with all the stakeholders (suppliers, manufacturers, retailers and consumers), while complying with all the statutory compliances to ensure co-ordination and optimization of the entire business cycle. In Supply chain management, logistics is responsible, for end-to-end optimization within the organisation as well as working with counterparts. It helps to develop the edge and profit of a company while constructing a valuable network within the supply chain including the end user.
With time, Logistics solutions like everything else has confronted changes. Emerging innovations, new brands, customer preferences and adaptive business models have created a cutthroat market; and finding a trustworthy brand is becoming a hardcore challenge. But, Inext Logistics is a one-step-solution for all these impediments.

A PASSIONATE LEADER
“A great leader never does the conspicuous or follow, instead he learns and shapes his own passion”. And the same is imprinted in Amardeep Singh Khurana (CMD) Inext. As a visionary, Mr Khurana identified the prolific scopes in the changing supply chain domain and believed in delivering solutions that show passion. “There is a lot of scope for logistics service providers who can offer quality services with flexibility and commitment”, he says. With this thought, he laid the founding stone of Inext to provide solutions having adaptability and dedication. His idea to deliver passion eventually became its principle coining its tagline “PASSION DELIVERED”.
Under his aegis, Inext hasn’t just achieved new heights, it has built a growing ecosystem for its people. His passion and zeal extend to his fellow leaders and employees, and the cohesiveness strengthens its operations. The Company invests considerable resources in coaching its people, turning them into high-performing professionals.

The subversive approach amalgamated with considerable experience in freight, warehousing & distribution services, helps in advising on industry insights, negotiate risks and proactive measures in changing scenarios. The combined focus is to provide the most innovative, competitive and effective logistics and supply chain solutions with an eye for product development.
THE EFFICACY OF R&D
As mentioned before, logistics is constantly encountering changes. And to thrive, R&D is indispensable. Inext believes and works towards surpassing its competitors. It constantly confers new practices, welcomes new technology to create effective solutions. Digitization is the name of the game! Modern logistics systems are bundled with Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Smart Sensors, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI), along with cloud computing. So how can Inext stay back in this race? The Company has boarded all the competencies, starting from:
- Shipment Tracking Systems – Enables clients to track consignments 24×7
- Enhanced GPS Accuracy – To track truck locations with updated traffic data
- Social Media Platforms – Optimize efficiency by transferring information and building better communication with clients
- Logistics Technology – To address the fast turnaround times, and safety challenges. The trucks and other freight carrying vehicles consists of features like lane assist and backup cameras, to ensure safe deliveries.
A plausible example of its R&D and technology integration is its ERP platform. The platform enables clients to check the real-time status of their consignments; and process orders online as well. “The platform enables the suitable transfer of information on the click of a button”, acclaims Mr Khurana. The platform can be accessed via website or as an app.

And to ensure their integrity, Inext gives abundant opportunities for growth with responsibilities on diverse aspects.

Also, they find well-defined salary and incentive structure, and top performers are rewarded with much more than their annual salary packages. “Our motto is – work more and earn more”, shares Mr Khurana. The positivity creates a cheerful ambience and people work as an entrepreneur instead of an employee.
Mr Khurana also states, “Everyone here works very hard and party harder”.

Through a flexible and cost-effective manner, it partnered with customers to understand their concerns and devise solutions & strategies to keep the wheels in motion.
