Flagship Event – C.L.A.W. (Convenient location for advanced warehousing)
Traditionally, the fiscal costs have predominantly determined the supply chain configuration. Hence, organisations tend to have a supply chain structure that is more distributed and fragmented. However, after implementation of GST the companies are moving towards a central warehousing system so as to utilize the benefits of the single tax regime and optimize the movement of goods. To provide a better insight on this t rend we are organizing C.L.A.W. The idea behind this event is to apprise the students with the Advantages and Problems that India possess with respect to Operations, Supply Chain Management and warehousing due to implementation of GST.

Quest ion formats would be designed in a way that will push the students to think deep to unmask the answers. Students will participate in a team of two.
