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 future.
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.
