Industry Focus

Warehousing

India is witnessing a great boom in the warehousing sector. Warehouse companies are increasing capacities, expanding their network and adapting new concepts to match international standards. Increasing manufacturing activity and growth in organized retail are the key demand generators for warehousing space. Exploding e-Commerce is also driving the warehousing demand. Rising containerized cargo traffic, formation of CFSs and ICDs and emergence of third party logistics (3PL) service providers has further accentuated the growth in the warehousing sector.

Overview

The Indian logistics industry is expected to grow annually at the rate of 15- 20 percent, reaching revenues of approximately $ 385billion by 2015. While the warehousing market is buoyant, it is equally at a greater risk due to increasing value of materials being stored in each location, paucity of experienced managers and limitations in risk mitigation measures. As per estimates, the number of fires originating from storage facilities is around 23% of the total fires reported. Warehouse losses could disrupt manufacturing processes, result in loss of market share (if the goods were imported and were in short supply) or delay a complete project (if the stored cargo gets destroyed). In the past few years, the Indian industry has lost millions in warehouse accidents. In the 2005 Mumbai floods insurance companies settled warehouse claims worth Rs. 500 crore (USD 100 million).

With increasing reliance of companies on third party logistics partners, outsourced warehousing, lean manufacturing and tight delivery schedules any loss in a warehouse can trigger consequential losses down a long chain.
