Kolkata-based Super Procure, a logistic workflow management company, which began operations in July 2017, has been witnessing two-fold jump in business on a month-to-month basis.

According to Varun Biyani, co-founder and CEO, the company’s web-based portal allows manufacturers and distributors to automate or digitise the flow or movement of goods by allowing them to get quotes from multiple vendors and transporters.

The company has added close to 30 customers from across sectors such as infrastructure, iron and steel and FMCG. It hopes to add 70 customers by October. The software currently facilitates close to 10,000 trips a month, which is likely to increase to 60,000 a month by the end of this year, he said.

‘Manual data’

“We started our business in July 2017, when the GST was introduced. This transformed the logistics industry by emphasising on digitisation. Our business has been growing 200 per cent on a month-to-month basis,” Biyani told BusinessLine.

The logistics industry is still largely dependent on manual data and records, Biyani said, and added that his company’s web-based portal helps simplify the process of logistics management through digitisation.

“Freight rates are highly fluctuating depending on the demand-supply situation.

“We bring both manufacturers and transporters on the same platform allowing them to compare the rates and negotiate better,” he said.
