World class — technology and years of expertise have helped Avvashya CCI deliver global service standards in the specialised field of chemical warehousing
There are inherent risks that are a part of handling large stocks of chemicals such as fire, burns and toxic fumes. This is why warehouse and inventory management is always a huge challenge for the chemicals industry - it requires special care and high-end safety precautions.
Chemical warehousing is such a specialised business that few enterprises are willing to take it on. It is capital and labour intensive. It requires strict adherence to safety, fire and environment norms, and also professional manpower trained to handle chemicals and materials that may be classified as hazardous. This is where Avvashya CCI (ACCI) has carved out a position for itself as one of India's best logistics service providers for the chemicals industry.
To cater to the niche requirements of the chemicals industry, ACCI has set up a specialised warehousing facility at the world class — multi-user ACCI Logistics Park at Panvel. The logistics park is predominantly used by Fortune 500 chemical companies present in India. Says Viswanathan Raju, Vice President, Contract Logistics - Chemical, Pharma and Food, Avvashya CCI. "The Panvel Logistics Park offers the highest health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) standards."
Specialised warehousing solutions, such as for the chemicals industry, constitute around 25 to 27 percent of the logistics industry, and the segment is growing quite rapidly. What separates ACCI from the competition is the robust adherence to statutory norms and implementation of minute details of safety and environment protection processes. This expertise has gone a long way in cementing the numero uno position of the Allcargo warehouse.
Chemical warehousing requires much more than proper infrastructure. The Panvel Logistics Park offers the entire value chain of services including:
The ACCI Logistics Park also boasts of world-class 3PL warehousing infrastructure that meets the just-in-time inventory requirements of auto manufacturers, and seasonal demands and fluctuations of e-commerce players. In the backdrop of the success of the Panvel Logistics Park, ACCI plans to replicate similar facilities at many more locations in the country.
ACCI manages a 5,700 pallet position facility at its Logistics Park at Panvel for a leading global chemicals manufacturer. Earlier, the customer had faced several challenges such as space constraints and hurdles in increasing storage capacities, managing mixed batches, high primary and secondary transportation costs, difficulty in arranging vehicles for last-mile deliveries, and difficulties in managing inbound and outbound logistics due to space constraints.
This is when ACCI stepped in with its expertise.
For the chemicals company, ACCI currently manages 4,000+ tonnes of chemicals, 300+ SKUs and over 550,000 movements to 70+ locations all over India.
These are a few reasons why ACCI has won the 'Best Warehouse Service Provider' Award from the customer for the third consecutive year, having been measured on metrics related to safety, sustainability, social responsibility and services.
ACCI today has emerged as India's specialist in handling end-to-end supply chain requirements for industry, with clear expertise in the chemicals sector. It was formed in 2016 by merging three strong entities:
