1. TVS Supply Chain Solutions distinctive technological approach as a provider of logistics solutions enables it to increase its visibility, speed, accuracy, and cost-efficiency for clients. Moreover, the company’s ability to personalize its technology-driven services to align with the unique needs of individual customers further sets it apart in the industry.

5. The logistics market in India is highly fragmented and unorganized compared to the other markets. This reduces the market penetration into the industry. This makes TVS Supply Chain Solutions Limited to be strategically positioned to capitalize on the substantial growth opportunities.


Risk factors to watch out in the IPO:


1. TVS Supply Chain Solutions obligation to repay the borrowings and the restrictions imposed by its financing agreements may reduce the funds available for purposes such as capital expenditures, acquisitions, and strategic investment as a result this will reduce the company’s flexibility in planning for or reacting to changes in the business, competition pressures, and market conditions.


2. As it can be seen that majority of TVS SCS' revenue from operations was denominated in foreign currencies, this makes the company vulnerable to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.


3. The working capital requirement has been increasing and an inability to meet such requirements can adversely affect its operations.


4. 38.88% revenue comes from the top 20 customers. Any termination or impairment of relationship with these customers can adversely affect the revenues of TVS Supply Chain Solutions.


5. As the entity operates on an asset-light business model, its operations are significantly dependent on network partners and other third parties for our warehousing and transportation needs. If the company is unable is retain any of its partners, it can significantly impacts the company’s operations.
