Sohan Lal Commodity Management (SLCM), India’s leading agri services solutions provider, has been conferred with CII Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence (SCALE) Award 2017 in the Agri-warehousing category. SLCM made it to the CII Institute of Logistics shortlist for this award for driving excellence in the field of agri-supply chain and agri-warehousing in India and demonstrating their success in devising innovative technologies in agri industry.

The CII SCALE Awards was instituted to encourage, acknowledge and recognise organisations that follow and succeed with best supply chain practices. These awards are considered to be one of the most coveted awards for excellence in the Supply Chain and Logistics industry and are presented to the top three companies in both Logistics Industry and User Industry category.
 
Speaking post the award ceremony, Sandeep Sabharwal, Group CEO, SLCM said, “We are delighted to be recognised by CII Institute of Logistics with the CII-SCALE Awards 2017. Providing the latest cutting edge, innovative solutions to the agriculture fraternity is the core function area of SLCM. As a leading business in the agricultural services sector, we are constantly looking to develop new and avant-garde solutions that will benefit the entire agriculture eco-system.”

“We have championed scientific storage practices through our proprietary agri services solution AGRI REACH and have revolutionised agricultural financing through our NBFC arm, Kissandhan. We feel privileged to continuously play a significant role in uplifting the agriculture sector in the country and pioneering innovative solutions in the sector,” Sabharwal added.

AGRI REACH can reduce post-harvest losses which are presently at 10% annually to just 0.5% irrespective of infrastructure, crop or geographic location of the crop. This has been duly accredited in a study conducted by FICCI as well. Moreover, to prove its scalability in international avenues, the Group forayed into Myanmar in April 2014 and as on today SLCM Myanmar is an independently running entity successfully curtailing the post-harvest losses ranging from 20-25% in that country.
