Vagaries of Indian Supply Chain

Sometime ago I had posted a picture of a truck with agri produce being transported on a barge across a river. Yesterday I happened to see this picture of camels transporting water melons. This brings to fore the point I have made in “The INDIAN reTALEs” about Indian Retail and SCM being a unique animal (pun intended w.r.t the camel) and needs to be understood well to be managed.

Imagine trying to apply international best practices like fleet optimization to this herd of camels, you will get the idea!!
