As the key knowledge partner for the India Commercial Vehicle Summit 2015, held in Westin Hotel, Pune on the 28th and 29thof May 2015, BMGI presented a framework for Commercial Vehicle players to go beyond making commercial vehicles and tapping related market. The event was organized by Shanghai based Lnoppen who facilitates business through events and market research across Asia & Europe. Thought leaders from across the world from the automotive industry graced the occasion. Senior Management representatives from automotive companies such as Tata Motors, Mercedes Benz, Mahindra & Mahindra, Ashok Leyland, AMW Motors, John Deere, ARAI, Maruti Suzuki, to name a few participated in the summit.

The event chairman Naresh T Raisinghani, CEO & Executive Director, BMGI, addressed the delegates and shared the current trends in the Indian Commercial Vehicle Industry and shared levers that could change the game in the Indian industry. The levers he shared include keeping aging vehicles off the road, mandating BSV norms, financing with low or nil interest cost vehicle for Light Commercial Vehicle’s and rapid infra development. He mentioned how he perceived that the current government was being aligned for the betterment of the industry.

BMGI unveiled a whitepaper titled “Revamping Logistics in Commercial Vehicle Manufacturers” which emphasizes on the need for a complete make over of supply chain for a sustained growth in the automobile Industry in India and thus contribute significantly to the country’s GDP. However this requires determination and commitment on the part of all stakeholders – Government, OEMs, suppliers and others. Since external agencies and factors are not within their control, it becomes imperative for automakers to focus on improving their respective supply chain practices laying emphasis on aligning these to meet the dynamic, evolving business environment. The paper was made available exclusively for the participants of the 4th India Commercial Vehicle Summit.

Are the only opportunities that exists for a CV maker limited to making and selling CVs? Nirmalya Banerjee, Business Head, BMGI, shared ways in which CV makers could look at the related jobs as carried out by the customers and tap the opportunities for growth. In his presentation on ‘Going Beyond Commercial Vehicles’ he engaged the audience with videos to explain value creation model and identifying jobs to be done.

Through a story of different coloured cheese, Mr Banerjee provided a lens for the organizations to see and identify opportunities. He pondered, while the CV makers assume responsibility of transfering goods from one location to another, there is no standard way of loading or unloading the goods into & out of the vehicle. He shared the technological advancements could make the last mile connectivity much more effective by the use of drones to deliver to the end user from a hub.

Sharing a framework that will enable organizations to look into a direction beyond what is in the known realm today, the business head from BMGI ended his provocative presentation inspiring the audience to look at the related jobs the customers are getting done today.
