Indian Logistics Sector
The logistics industry in India is valued at 13-14% of GDP.
About 70% of domestic cargo movement in India happens
through roads. The last mile delivery of goods happens only
through roads.
It is found that 31% of the logistics cost goes on other
expense apart from Transportation and warehousing. This
includes losses in transportation on storage.
Generating skilled manpower, technology implementation
and improving the infrastructure are the most needed
support to the industry.
