Transportation & Logistics

The logistics industry in India is evolving rapidly and it is the interplay of infrastructure, technology and new types of service providers that will define whether the industry is able to help its customers reduce their logistics costs and provide effective services (which are also growing). Changing government policies on taxation and regulation of service providers are going to play an important role in this process. Coordination across various government agencies requires approval from multiple ministries and is a road block for multi modal transport in India. At the firm level, the logistics focus is moving towards reducing cycle times in order to add value to their customers. Consequently, better tools and strategies are being sought by firms in order to enhance their decision making. Logistics industry in India is an industry that has not achieved its much deserved attention or recognition. It is an area that is ripe with potential and yet the resources are far from complete utilizations. There is however a huge demand for logistic services in India especially with the growth of the Indian economy along with the influx of new companies in sectors that was otherwise unknown. Estimated at a value of $14 billion US dollars this industry is slated for another 9% to 10% growth in the years to come.
