Cargo Talk - - Academy -

Ac­cord­ing to a re­port by Na­tional Skilled De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (NSDC), In­dia will need around 28.4 mil­lion strong work­force by 2022 in the coun­try’s boom­ing trans­porta­tion, lo­gis­tics, ware­hous­ing and pack­ag­ing sec­tor. The sec­tor cur­rently em­ploys over 16.74 mil­lion employees. Hence, this sec­tor will have one of the high­est in­cre­men­tal hu­man re­source re­quire­ment of 11.7 mil­lion from 2013-2022, across the 24 sec­tors that have been mapped for as­sess­ing in­cre­men­tal hu­man re­source re­quire­ment in the coun­try.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, ris­ing in­vest­ment, rapidly evolv­ing reg­u­la­tory poli­cies, mega in­fra­struc­ture projects and sev­eral other devel­op­ments in re­cent times have driven the In­dian lo­gis­tics mar­ket, si­mul­ta­ne­ously, also over­com­ing in­fras­truc­tur­ere­lated con­straints and lo­gis­tics-cen­tric in­ef­fi­ciency.

The re­port fur­ther states that key growth driv­ers are the lo­gis­tics ac­tiv­i­ties which are cur­rently out­sourced and grow­ing rapidly at a rate of 52 per cent.
