These factors demonstrate what a company excels at and its uniqueness in the market. Analysing a company’s strengths will enable you to understand its competitive position and future scope.

Here are the top competitive strengths of TVS Supply Chain Solutions Ltd:

  • Being a large player in a fragmented market

The Indian logistics market is more expensive (13% of total GDP) compared to most developed countries. As such, there is a growing demand for cost-effective, modernised and well-integrated logistics services. Moreover, the market is highly fragmented and unorganised, which minimises the competition for a large player like TVS SCS.

  • Track record of successful acquisitions

Over the years, TVS Supply Chain Solutions has made over 20 strategic acquisitions across many countries. Through its acquisitions, the company has acquired companies specialising in repair and refurbishment services, freight forwarding solutions, tech logistics, same-day express delivery and more. This has allowed it to build an extensive portfolio of offerings.

  • Having a resilient business model

The company has built a business with well-diversified revenue sources. As of FY2023, it has 8,788 clients spread across 26 countries and different sectors such as automobiles, consumer tech, utilities, etc. Most of these clients have multi-year contracts with TVS SCS which ensure long-term profits.

  •  Leading provider of one-stop logistics solutions

According to a report by Redseer, TVS Supply Chain Solutions Ltd is the largest supply chain solutions provider in India. Its market leader position in an industry expected to $385 billion by FY2027 provides attractive growth potential for investors. Moreover, the company provides end-to-end logistics services, which is still uncommon in our country.

  • Asset light operations

Despite its relatively large size, the company operates an asset-light business as it does not maintain ownership of its assets. However, it has full control over the scheduling, routing and storage of goods to deliver. This allows this company to keep its expenses low while maintaining control over performance and quality metrics.

  • Predictive analysis capabilities

TVS Supply Chain Solutions Limited has successfully integrated emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data into its algorithms. This enables the company to use real-time data analytics to optimise its network density, equipment utilisation and improve customer service and operational efficiency.

Risks involved

When making any investment decision, proper risk management is necessary to identify threats before they occur. That is why you should study the following risk factors if you are planning to invest in TVS Supply Chain Solutions IPO:

  • Dependence on a few key customers

The company derives a portion of its revenue from a few key clients. As of FY2023, the top 20 customers accounted for as much as 38.88% of its total revenue from operations. Hence, if one or two clients refuse to renew their contracts or their demand for services decreases, it could result in a decline in the company’s revenue.

  •  High operating expenses

TVS Supply Chain Solutions spends a large portion of its revenue on operating expenses. In FY2023, 36.47% of its operating revenue was spent on freight, forwarding, carrying and handling charges. Meanwhile, 20.45% of its revenue was spent on employee benefits and 10.46% on sub-contracts. Any increase in these expenses will affect the company’s profits.

  •  Losses in previous financial years

If you check the company’s restated financials, you will see that the company realised Rs. 417.61 million in profits in FY2023. However, in the previous two fiscals, the company incurred losses of Rs. 458 million and Rs. 763.44 million, respectively. A labour strike and various macroeconomic events resulted in overall losses. In similar situations, TVS SCS may incur losses in the future.

  •  Exposed to currency fluctuations

A significant portion of this company’s revenues are from foreign countries. While international diversification has several benefits, it also exposes its profit margin to foreign currency fluctuations. Hence, the weakening of the Indian rupee against various foreign currencies, including US Dollar, Euro, British Pound, etc., can affect its bottom line.

A comprehensive analysis of the above strength and risk factors will provide you with key insights into the company’s fundamentals. You can get more details from the Red Herring Prospectus (RHP) that the company has filed with SEBI.
