Sanjay Bhatia, Co-Founder, Freightwalla: Digitisation should lead to transparency
Arguably, the biggest bug in the logistics system is bottlenecks in movement, both literal and metaphoric. The recent Suez Canal crisis━where the Ever Given was stuck from March 23 for nearly a week after she ran aground on the Canal━serves as an opportunity for revisiting how supply chains operate in trade and the related risks that come with it.
Sanjay Bhatia is the Co-Founder of Freightwalla, a four-year-old digital freight forwarding company that says it aims to revolutionise logistics and has recently struck deals in blockchain-based supply chain solutions. In this interaction, Bhatia says the government’s digitisation push is great, but it needs to be more comprehensive to truly bear the cherished results of transparency and savings in time and costs. The Suez Canal crisis in March also brought into focus India’s water transport systems. Bhatia appeals to the government for better infrastructure and policies.
