CII Lo­gis­tics urges for sep­a­rate min­istry for lo­gis­tics

Cargo Talk - - Industry News -

In view of the tremen­dous chal­lenges and is­sues be­ing faced by cargo and lo­gis­tics in­dus­try in In­dia, and the lack of in­te­gra­tion among the govern­ment agen­cies and pol­icy mak­ers, the CII Lo­gis­tics will push the idea of hav­ing a sep­a­rate min­istry for lo­gis­tics. Cur­rently, the lead­ing in­dus­try body in the coun­try is dis­cussing the mat­ter within the or­gan­i­sa­tion to give a con­crete shape to this pop­u­lar de­mand. Speak­ing to Car­gotalk at the re­cently held CII In­sti­tute of Lo­gis­tics’s ‘Next Gen­er­a­tion Sup­ply Chain 2020’ Con­fer­ence held in New delhi, Cyrus Guzder, Chair­man, CII In­sti­tute of Lo­gis­tics, Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil and CMD, AFL said that the cargo and lo­gis­tics in­dus­try must have in­dus­try sta­tus. And, it is very dif­fi­cult to ad­dress this long-pend­ing in­dus­try is­sue with­out a nodal and pow­er­ful min­istry. Sup­ple­ment­ing Guzder, R Di­nesh, Co-Chair­man, CII In­sti­tute of Lo­gis­tics Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil and JMD, TVS & Sons main­tained that though it ap­par­ently looks like an early de­mand, it is true that un­til and un­less the in­dus­try gets a sep­a­rate min­istry, the coun­try can­not ex­pect seam­less lo­gis­tics op­er­a­tion and growth of its econ­omy.
