On 3rd January 2014, Mr Partha Neog – Sales Manager, Hankyu Hanshin Express India Pvt Ltd. Delhi NCR delivered a guest lecture to the management students of FIIB Delhi, as a part of their course of International Logistics Management (ILM).

While comparing the Indian exports percentage (in context to the total GDP) to that of the Japanese Economy, he discussed why the value of a dollar in India is significantly higher than in other countries.

In the process of explaining and analyzing the logistic issues in India with the MBA students, he presented before them, various charts showcasing various statistical results of Ocean import and Air import in India with explanations of the frequently used terminologies. From his years of experience in dealing with several countries, the real life examples cited by him were informative and helpful in terms of the topic of the lecture.

He then explained in detail how Ocean Import and Export procedures are operated in India. Comparing these to advanced countries like Japan and China- he pointed out how India as an Economy had miles to go to match up to the techniques applied there. Further, his line of speech went into elaborated illustrations of how custom inspections are done in the import-export business, how different nations impose different kinds of regulations and inspection techniques before giving custom clearance to container goods. Important import tips pertaining to classification of different kinds of products were discussed, which also covered several important factors like direct taxation, Octroi, and seasonal impacts on these techniques etc.
