The FICCI Lo­gis­tics Forum was for­mally launched by Dr CP Joshi, Union Min­is­ter of Road Trans­port & High­ways at the ÂIn­dia In­fra­struc­ture Sum­mit 2012Ê, or­gan­ised by FICCI on Au­gust 31, in New Delhi. Chaired by Raaja Kan­war, di­rec­tor, Apollo Lo­giSo­lu­tions, the Forum is open to lo­gis­tics com­pa­nies, pro­fes­sion­als, re­lated in­dus­try or­gan­i­sa­tions, aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions and other lo­gis­tics stake­hold­ers.

Ac­cord­ing to Kan­war, the vi­sion be­hind the launch of the forum is to pro­vide a plat­form to the Lo­gis­tics In­dus­try in In­dia to voice their opin­ion and con­cerns. „Through the FICCI Lo­gis­tics Forum, we as the in­dus­try are aim­ing at shar­ing in­no­va­tive ideas, pro­mot­ing adoption of best prac­tices, ad­vo­cat­ing the in­ter­ests of the lo­gis­tics in­dus­try and reach­ing out to all the as­so­ci­ated stake­hold­ers in­clud­ing pol­icy mak­ers,‰ he said. In his opin­ion, the launch of the Forum is a unique ini­tia­tive which will help to bring all the lead­ing play­ers of the in­dus­try to­gether and put a con­sol­i­dated ef­fort to­wards re­solv­ing sev­eral in­dus­try is­sues.

The Forum is open to lo­gis­tics com­pa­nies, pro­fes­sion­als, re­lated in­dus­try or­gan­i­sa­tions, aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions and all oth­ers hav­ing in­ter­est in the lo­gis­tics sec­tor. „We are look­ing for­ward to­wards a healthy par­tic­i­pa­tion from all stake­hold­ers in or­der for the FICCI Lo­gis­tics Forum to play a cat­alytic role in the over­all de­vel­op­ment of the sec­tor,‰ added Kan­war. Speak­ing to Car­gotalk, he also main­tained that the nitty-gritty of the Forum will be de­cided within very short time af­ter dis­cussing with the in­dus­try stake­hold­ers (both from users and ser­vice providers of lo­gis­tics ser­vices).
