About its partnership with Messe Muenchen India, Sanjeev Malhotra, CEO, NASSCOM Center of Excellence, said, “Digital supply chains are crucial to overcome pandemic-related disruptions and adopt risk-proof strategies backed by robust technologies such as AI and IoT. Logistics companies need to pre-emptively identify risks and emerging challenges, discover and adopt next-generation technology solutions, and speed up their response timelines to meet consumers’ needs and market demands. Supply chains today are data-rich, and they have the potential to be more intelligent, resilient, affordable, and sustainable using digital tools. Through our partnership with Messe Muenchen India, we want to promote such IoT and AI- driven tools among Indian logistics service providers. Hence, we are proud to present a one-day conference on ‘Digitizing the Supply Chain’ at SmartCards Expo.”
Role of Start-ups in Digital Supply Chains India’s dynamic startup ecosystem has received global accolades for creating Globally, the 3rd largest number of unicorns, innovations, investments, and companies over the last few years.

Digital supply chains will play an increasingly important role as India becomes a manufacturing hub and an integral part of global value chains. Over the years, SmartCards Expo has cemented its position as India’s only trade fair for the identification, authentication, and digital payments ecosystem. We are delighted to collaborate with the NASSCOM Centre for Excellence to organize a one-day conference and Startup Pavilion for the supply chain industry.
