The "Logistics
in India 2018"
report has been added to's

The logistics sector in India has seen a lot of activity in the recent
times. Introduction of the good and services tax is being touted as a
boon for the industry.

The government on its part has been working on ways to attract greater
investments in the segment. Grant of infrastructure status to logistics
is a step in the right direction.

A shift from pure transportation business to end-to-end service
providers has emerged, thereby facilitating growth of third-party
logistics and supply chain management industries in India. The rising
scale of freight transportation has further encouraged a trend towards
outsourcing non-core activities like logistics, warehousing, and
associated activities to integrated players which has increased the
share of the organized segment.

The overall outlook is very bright. The sector will see huge growth in
terms of capacity through a host of ongoing and upcoming big ticket
programmes. Six major projects in roads, ports, inland waterways and
railways - Bharat Mala, Setu Bharatam, district connectivity, Sagarmala,
port-rail connectivity, 106 national waterways development - have been
announced by the government, which will directly benefit the sector in

Rising e-commerce footprint has led a manifold increase in the demand
for warehousing. In the times to come, continuous growth in demand for
transport and storage services, demand from end user industries, greater
technology penetration, development of integrated facilities and planned
fleet acquisitions by service providers and 3PL providers will fuel
growth in the sector.
