SLCM in India has defined & implemented systems and scientific processes which are making agriculture logistics independent of infrastructure and agnostic to geographical location irrespective of the crop. Taking it forward, SLCM Ltd was established in Yangon region of Myanmar. Warehousing Services can be broadly classified into categories mentioned hereunder:
We take charge of the complete warehouse or its chambers / area on lease / long lease basis and offer the space to different clients for storage the commodities. The rates and other terms & conditions are mutually agreed upon between SLCM & the customer through an agreement.
In this kind of warehousing service, commodities traded over Exchanges which are stored in SLCM warehouses as per the agreed terms through an agreement between Commodity Exchanges and SLCM. However, the rates for warehousing are declared by the commodity exchanges through circulars time to time.
In WMS, customer approaches SLCM to provide Warehouse Management Service for his commodities located at his (owned or leased) warehouse.

The terms & conditions are mutually agreed upon between the two parties.
In India, Warehouse Owners approach SLCM to provide Warehouse Management Service for the commodities pertaining to State/Central Government. Such warehouses are accredited by the State/ Central Government under Private Entrepreneurs Guarantee (PEG) Schemes. This in turn, means we are managing the stock for the government indirectly.

We have also initiated warehousing and warehousing allied services in the organic sector in India. The challenge with organic storage is that the product can’t be treated with normal fumigation. To maintain the longevity of the product life; it is imperative that the processes are aligned with organic stature of the product.
SLCM has evolved this service for more than 40 varieties of dry food products such as grains, cereals and spices, condiment, etc. in four states in India & now in Myanmar as well. Exporters who are certified by the world’s best agencies like USDA Organic, India Organic, Fair Trade & Kosher in India have shown their trust to SLCM for the upkeep of their organic product.
SLCM provides curative services for organic products and has introduced Cocoon Fumigation. This storage system can be used for medium and long term storage needs and eliminate the use of fumigants or chemicals. This system is recommended to control insect infestation, humidity, which can lead to change in chemical composition, taste, colour and mould that tend to spoil the commodity. SLCM offers fumigation services at a minimal cost and assures the quantity & quality of organic goods stored in its Warehouses.
After proving it’s competency for dry goods commodities in India; SLCM has initiated warehousing services for horticulture sector. The post harvest loses in the sector are as high as 30% to 40% of the produce. Till date, SLCM has taken over managements of 19 Cold Storages across India.
