Of particular interest to them were IBS’ products iLogistics and iPort. V K Mathews, CMD - IBS, spoke on the advantages when companies implemented iLogisitics in their operations. The fact that the oil and gas industry was showing an increasing willingness to share logistics resources amongst themselves bodes well for the product.
