Programme Background and Objectives


India is on the throes of a major revamp in the supply chain and logistics management strategies with the advent of GST. The advent of GST is likely to create new opportunities for modern warehousing facilities across important connected locations. Large and modern warehouses would be the order of the day from small and inefficient warehouses at present set up for tax arbitrage purposes only. Similarly, role of logistics across the supply chain will increase manifold with 3PL players taking a major share of business and in turn building complex supply chain at their end to provide efficient services.


This will entail large scale restructuring and/ or complete remodelling of existing supply chain networks from that of efficient tax management to one of appropriate cost optimization model to enhance supply chains all across Industries and verticals.


GST will have intensive impacts on almost all the aspects of the business operations in the country, for instance, pricing of products and services, supply chain optimization, IT, accounting, and tax compliance systems.


Financing needs will grow in scale and in ticket sizes for manufacturing and services. Supply chain risks across the spectrum will also increase, necessitating lenders to understand supply chain complexities in detail to be able to decide on appropriate risks in business models and concomitant pricing.


CRISIL’s two-day programme is aimed at credit analysts, professionals and entrepreneurs in micro, small and medium enterprises, and supply chain professionals to appreciate supply chain and their key linkages, understanding structure, purpose, assessment and opportunities in financing across the value chains of  products and services to encompass Vendor Financing (VF)/ Purchase Financing, Inventory Financing/ Dealer Funding (DF), Invoice Discounting/ Receivable Funding (RF) all under a complete consultative and technology intensive to lending and monitoring as against product centric approach used as present with less than optimal monitoring. A lender will need to be present across the entire value chain in order to maximise/ monitor opportunities and existing relationships rather than be present with products at specific areas of a supply chain.


The programme will be delivered through experience sharing, discussions to enhance understanding, presentations, exercises and case studies.
