Infrastructure is critical to the growth of economy and logistics infrastructure in particular, with a well-designed extensive network of roads, bridges, railways, ocean and air routes, ports and airports, is one of the vital growth drivers for industry.
The country’s logistics infrastructure is considered highly incapable of supporting the existing and projected high growth rates. With the highly unorganised logistics market and gross under-utilisation of resources therein, what is it that they would need to unconventionally equip them with this growth in demand and increase in competition that they would have to surpass?
