Logistics plays a very important role in ensuring that all products and outputs reaches to the end of the Supply Chain or Consumers, in a timely and safe manner. However, in reality, every industry has certain products, which are more critical than others. These can be raw materials, finished goods or spares. The criticality can be in sensitivities regarding value, temperature, handling, transit time, nature of the product, confidentiality, life span or even high on emotional quotient.
More than often, the Shipper has not tried to assess differentiated logistics solutions for such items and traditionally these shipments have been transported with the normal bulk cargo. The traditional logistics companies have also never recommended for differential treatment of such critical products, mainly due to lack of differentiated network and handling capabilities; hence such sensitive/critical products had very little logistical choice in the past.
There are quite a few names among the large international logistics companies that have created space in such niche logistics arena. Some has developed secured network to carry precious cargo, some has developed faster delivery capabilities and so on. No such dedicated critical logistics solution existed in India till CriticaLog arrived on the scene.
