The logistics sector is changing fast across the globe and logistics performance is envisioned as the key to economic growth and competitiveness. The nature of demand, type of players, use of modern technologies, on-time deliveries, new risks, and policy concerns have given an entirely new dimension to logistics, which was earlier pursued as a simple movement of goods from one point to another. Logistics has an important bearing on the performance, economic development and integration of a country.
World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index which ranks every country on the basis of their customs, infrastructure, ease of arranging shipments, quality of logistics services, timeliness, and tracking and tracing; has ranked India 44th with a score of 3.18. In comparison, India’s major trading partners like Germany, US, European countries, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia are ranked better because of their superior logistics arrangements.
Indian steel and mineral industry which is looking at 300 million tons of steel production and approximately 200 million tons of finished steel movement, along with another 500 million tons of raw material movement has to be more competitive and efficient in time to come. Keeping in view the need of the hour to upgrade Indian logistics, Metalogic organized this conference on Modern Logistics for Indian Metals & Raw Material Industry.
METALOGIC 2ND ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Quality ~ simply better than the rest..
From jewellery to food products, cars to electronics, we all know that “Quality” is the key. Quality in the steel sector or even in any manufacturing industry is a measure of excellence or a state of being free from defects, deficiencies and significant variations.
It is brought about by strict and consistent commitment to certain standards that achieve uniformity of a product in order to satisfy specific customer or user requirements.
Whether you are a small house owner, civil architect, manufacturer, construction company or involved the mining, oil and gas industry, it is vital to ensure you are purchasing and using steel products that are designed, manufactured and tested to comply with the correct standards for your intended use. Failure to do so can lead to safety issues, replacement costs, re-work, delays and hefty compensation claims.
Quality Compliance~ Ensuring quality by strict control..
Confirming to the prescribed standards will allow businesses to ensure that metals and components supplied by different companies will be mutually compatible. Using standards also helps businesses demonstrate to regulators and customers that their products and services meet defined safety, quality, and environmental standards. Improved ability to meet legislative and regulatory requirements enables companies to develop competitive manufacturing capabilities and expand their market reach by ensuring conformity with various industry, military, aerospace, and automotive standards. Hence, without Quality
