we being students of JSSATE college, Bangalore are looking for our final year academic project on d supply chain and logistics subject, but we are not able to select any appropriate topic for the same please do guide us and which are d firms that do entertain us in there sector to do our project

Answer
Hi and Good day

Its nice to note that the students at JSSATE college are interested in taking up final year projects on supply chain/logistics. There are many firms which provide the opportunities, but you guys are positioned a bit late, if you want to do the project between Jan - April next year. Because, most of the top companies like the DHL, DB Schenker, Fedex, AFL, TVS logistics, Agility from the logistics end and manufacturers like brittania, mico, siemens, caterpillar etc would expect you to approach them atleast 90 days before you start the project.

Suggest that you form a committee and take couple of your profs into the committee and then start approaching prospective companies in Bangalore initially and maybe at a later stage you can look at other cities as most of the companies dont cover your costs during the project.

All the very best to you and please feel free to connect for any support

Thanks
