New Delhi, 14 January 2019: JK Lakshmi, counted among the leading cement manufacturers in West and East India, has selected FarEye, the pioneer in digital logistics, to get predictive visibility, strategic insights, and better control into goods movement and improve collaboration with third-party vendors. Maintaining an efficient distribution network to ensure on-time deliveries is a top priority for JK Lakshmi Cement and FarEye’s state-of-the-art technology has been a key enabler for the company.
“On our wide distribution network handling volumes around 8 lakh tonnes/month, pilferage and back/forward loading are some of the key operational challenges that we face. We believe that gaining better visibility into our vast network of multiple plants and about 10,000 destinations will help us control pilferage, optimize capacity and eventually help us deliver a superior customer experience.” says Dr. Shailendra Chouksey, Whole-Time Director, JK Lakshmi Cement.
FarEye will help the company boost its collaboration with external, 3rd party vendors by introducing its proprietary platform that integrates with the internal and external stakeholders to provide much-needed real-time visibility at a trip level on web and the ease of their mobile phones. The key areas where the FarEye platform will benefit JK Lakshmi are as follows:
- Enhance Collaboration: Boost collaboration among 3rd party vendors
