Abstract: Abstract: Presence of major global auto companies has pushed the domestic sector into adopting supply chain management (SCM) practices in order to stay competitive in the market. This has also helped many companies to export their product in the international market. Automotive Supply Chain is complex network of nodal (main) organization, auto ancillary com-panies, distributors, dealers & others. Tierization of auto supply chain further complicates the adaptation of SCM practices as relationship, size & scope differs from Tier to Tier. It has been seen that Tier-1 companies are becoming stronger & big-ger because of market growth & by adopting best management practices but Tier-2s & other upstream companies are struggling for survival in competitive & fast paced business environment. Low margin, meeting strict Quality Standards, frequent changes in Delivery schedule from customers & little bargaining power are the some of the challenges faced by them. These companies are largely home grown, proprietary driven with small structure, lack resources, knowledge & ex-perience in best SCM practices. SCM practices in Tier-2 companies has not received serious attention from academicians & industry alike in the past. Little literature is available in this aspect of study. Therefore, a need is felt to study SCM practices from Tier 2 perspective. The article, based on theoretical reviews & expert practitioner’s view point highlights the best SCM practices for Local Tier 2 suppliers for improving their competitiveness from futuristic perspective. Further it is found that many of the SCM practices need inter-organizational (supplier- buyer) collaboration for its effective implementation at Ti-er-2.
