ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Some says “managers are born and some says managers are made”. I was also in some dilemma before commencing my summer internship. But after the successful completion of my summer internship I came to know that managers are guided properly and are motivated to work willingly towards fulfilment of specific goal. The satisfaction and euphoria that accompany the successful completion of the work would be incomplete unless we mention the people as an expression of gratitude who made it possible and whose constant guidance and encouragement serve as a beacon of light and crowned my efforts with success. The project report is the outcome of the backing and encouragement of the number of persons whom I have been associated during the past two months. I wish to offer my deep veneration to Mr.Areef patel,Executive Vice Chairman of Patel Integrated Logistic Limited (PILL) for providing the opportunity to work on this project title. “The Operation Procedure at Patel Integrated Logistics Limited.” My proud full sense of obligation goes to Mrs. Monika Sinha, my project supervisor , in procedure department for assisting me lot during the project work. I also like to convey my sincere thanks to all employees of Patel Integrated Logistics, Pune and all my co summer trainees for their helping hand that I always found extended to me whenever I needed. Last but not least I like to thanks all my teachers, family members & friends, particularly to Prof. Nitin Tupe and. I own special thanks to our director Dr. Daniel Penkar who had helped me to clarify my concept by sharing their valued experience in their teaching, research and training which have thereby become an unconscious part of my ideas and thoughts while making this project.

PREFACE
Practical knowledge is an important suffix to theoretical knowledge. One cannot merely depend upon the theoretical knowledge. Classroom lectures make the fundamental concept of management clear. They also facilitate the learning of practical things. However, classroom lectures must be correlated with the practical training situations. It is in the sense that practical training in a company has a significant role to play in the subject of business management. Market research is indeed in ancient art; it has been practiced in one form of the other since the day of Adam and eve.

As an essential part of our course, I got the privilege to have training in PATEL INTEGRATED LOGISTICS LIMITED. As my area of interest is operations, the project was provided to me titles “THE OPERATION PROCESS”, in Patel Logistics.

The documents needs to be verified thoroughly to identify whether it is a genuine customer or not. If it is a regular customer then we have to oblige by taking a letter from the customer by asking us to hold the goods with us. Do Not carry any consignments containing Arms and Ammunition without proper license.PICK-UP PROCESS Delivery of packages to the customers at the right time in proper condition is an important role of any carrier. We need to check the station mentioned by the customer in the document and follow the various procedures mentioned below -When a customer comes with the documents for booking the consignments. After verification of the contents and the physical condition of the packages. for practical reasons even if the customer gives all the documents we should avoid carrying the goods.

We should ask the customer to replace the drums and not handover the GC note without getting a replacement for it.

whereby we should be in a position to limit our liability.Two copies of invoice need to be given to the customer. we issue a goods forwarding note for each consignment. In future we need to insist customer to give 3 copies of Invoice i. 2 for normal Transportation and one to be stamped by the Excise Authorities. . The other 2 copies of Invoice should be stapled. EXCISABLE GOODS CENTRAL GOVERNMENT has posted few doubts over EXCISE GATE PASS for Excisable goods.(f) Declaration of Household Articles / Undertaking letter to insure such consignments from the consignor. the value whichever is lower will be recorded in the forwarding note as well as in the GC note.

GOODS FORWARDING NOTE Whenever a customer comes for booking a consignment.Consignee’s name and address in full should be furnished in the invoice. However. With reference to the new Policy of Excisable goods. With Forwarding note there will be a contractual obligation.Invoice should be printed. 2. Duplicate copy signed and stamped by the Excise Authorities needs to be pasted (with glue or fevicol) behind the drivers copy. If not.The value recorded in the invoice and in the forwarding note should be the same. The customer needs to fill up all the columns and the same needs to be signed and stamped. . there needs to be 2 invoices maintained in original and duplicate. A Forwarding note will help us to intimate the customer if there is any problem. . 3. (Consignee’s address in the invoice should be the one in GC unless specific instructions are given by the consignor for delivery to different address). Hence a forwarding note is necessary for all practical purposes.

The Forms required basically by the following states are as attached as enclosures Check list of check post documents. the exemption certificate should be given to us and in the Driver's copy it should be written in bold letters "OCTROI EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE ATTACHED". Clarify to the driver that he needs to hand over the drivers copy along with the Excise Gate Pass cum Invoice pasted behind it. 4. OCTROI EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE Certain states levy Octroi. FORMS Different states require different types of Forms which are basically concerned with Sales Tax. if the customer asked us to pay the Excise Duty charges.

If you find the Excise Gate Pass cum Invoice has been removed.After loading. Ask the driver to count personally. These forms need to be accepted in triplicate and should be attached along with Drivers copy of GC note. we may have to recover the amount from the driver concerned. If the above procedure is not followed. he will not get the Truck Hire from the branch concerned and in fact. 6. At the time of booking. These Forms have to be filled up by the Consignor with all the details and the same should be signed and stamped.

the number of packages. Every consignment needs to be weighed. you have to weigh all the packages and record the total actual weight in the Goods Forwarding Note. From the above it is very clear that we are liable to deliver weight whatever we have recorded in our GC note. For example: We have accepted such consignments and at the time of delivery customer has reported certain shortages. commensurate with its weight. the actual weight and the mode of packing should be same at the time of delivery. Later on it was proved that when the survey is conducted at the port. If a customer gives one or multiple packages. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------BUSINESS POLICY MANUAL 2008 – 09 (33) . we are supposed to deliver the goods as it is i. If there is any difference in the weight then the customer may ask for open delivery and they can claim for the shortages. Although the packages are intact and if there is a difference in weight. If the consignment is voluminous in nature. The actual kg is derived by the CFT (cubic feet) of above mentioned vehicle and arrived value of one CFT is equivalent to 12 kgs for LTL and 10 Kgs for Retail.e. to avoid any claim for shortages later. In such case it is important that we should ask the truck vendor/driver to weigh the empty truck and after collecting the part load from the customer again take the weighment. we need to charge the customer on weight calculated as a factor of the consignments volume. For example: A branch has booked 20 cartons of same size and similarly 20 drums of same size. Take a photo copy of the import document and also get the survey report conducted at the Port. As a logistics company.e. the weighment is very important irrespective of the quantity you have i. The accuracy should be maintained in all aspects. because the truck hire is paid on the basis of weight loaded. that the consignments are in proper condition. These are the standard norms accepted. It is possible that you may have to send a vehicle to the customer for collecting part load for a particular destination. The actual weight should be recorded in the GC note. as it was booked. They have taken weighment of one carton and one drum and multiply with the total number of drums and cartons. WEIGHING Our charges are generally on weight basis.
