Many things can be done but it should start with technology that enables and connects different platforms and technologies.There is a need for neutral industry enablers in our market to make this happen. to get a competitive advantage over others. It is more focused on being better than look like logistics or forwarding company, which need not necessarily help the end user.

What drives 3PL growth in India? In my opinion China and India are future growth engines as most of the developed economies of Europe and North America are peaking while they continue to be the largest drivers and consumers. India is an important market for us.
Your future plans... China and India are two key markets. We see them as growth engines and we will support growth in these markets.
However MIQ does not buy business, we believe in building the organisation not just in erecting one–one would agree there is fine difference in two approaches.
