JK Lakshmi to upgrade logistics
15 January 2019

India’s JK Lakshmi Cement has contracted FarEye, a digital logistics company, to maintain its distribution network and increase predictive visibility.

"On our wide distribution network handling volumes around 800,000tpm, 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, optimise capacity and eventually help us deliver a superior customer experience," said Shailendra Chouksey, whole-time director, JK Lakshmi Cement.

FarEye will help increase the company’s collaboration with third-party vendors by introducing its proprietary platform that provides real-time visibility at a trip level, according to a press release. The company is also expected to digitalise vehicle placement and introduce electronic proof of purchase.
