MUMBAI: Snapdeal is planning to invest $300 million this year to strengthen its Supply Chain Management (SCM), which is a key function of any e-commerce company. Additionally, the company has strengthened its SCM team with the appointment of Hardeep Singh as head - infrastructure.

 

In his new role, he will help craft strategies for making Snapdeal’s Supply Chain systems future ready. This includes the entire gamut of network design, infrastructure and special projects.

 

Singh comes with over 21 years of experience in various aspects of supply chain operations including – planning, warehouse management, driving process excellence, supply chain technology integration, end-to-end solutions design and implementation. Prior to his appointment at Snapdeal, he was at Bharti Retail as head – supply chain and infrastructure.

It is exciting to see a young company like Snapdeal launch innovative supply chain solutions and set new benchmarks in this space. I look forward to working with the dynamic team at Snapdeal.”

Our aim is to create a delightful experience for our customers and as the customers evolve, we need to constantly innovate and develop newer solutions to service them better.
