Ef­fi­cient Govern­ment

Cargo Talk - - Industry Speak -

How was FY 2013-14 for your com­pany?

It was a very good year for Swiss WorldCargo. We were on tar­get with our an­nual plans and above rev­enue Bud­get.

Pre­sent mar­ket trends and ex­pec­ta­tions from FY 2014-15?

Post elec­tions, the po­lit­i­cal in­sta­bil­ity has been cleared with the new Govern­ment in ac­tion. We fore­see the mood of In­dian trade, busi­ness and in­dus­tries to get back on track. This will in­vari­ably im­prove the in­dus­trial pro­duc­tion and to an ex­tent ex­ports.

Swiss World Cargo, be­ing a niche car­rier with an eye to­wards care and qual­ity, we see our op­por­tu­ni­ties in var­ied ex­port com­modi­ties and prod­ucts which need spe­cial­ized han­dling, at­ten­tion and ser­vice.

What are your ex­pec­ta­tions from the new govern­ment?

1. Sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of trans­ac­tions and process ef­fi­ciency from govern­ment de­part­ments who are in­volved or fa­cil­i­tate trade would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by the lo­gis­tics fra­ter­nity. 2. The mar­ket pres­sure will force in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ments, which will also need full sup­port of the govern­ment as busi­nesses and peo­ple have no more the lux­ury of time or pa­tience, in com­pet­i­tive en­vi­ron­ment.

3. This is one big chance of In­dia as a Na­tion to rise up to in­ter­na­tional ex­pec­ta­tions and leapfrog to the next level.
