The Indian logistics sector is reshaping its identity – from traditional scattered and isolated ways of functioning to a modern integrated mode. The change is taking place across various stages of logistics, including inventory management, storage, transportation, etc.
India’s objective is to bring the logistics cost down from the current 14% to 7-8% of the GDP in the medium term. About 50% of the logistics cost lies in transportation, currently relying on roadways, which is expensive and time-consuming.
