Ma­jor in­vest­ments by both pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors in the last five years on in­fra­struc­ture, tech­nol­ogy up­grades and ex­pan­sion of sea and air­port fa­cil­i­ties, and ded­i­cated lo­gis­tics cor­ri­dor in the rail net­work are ex­pected to strengthen the In­dian lo­gis­tics in­fra­struc­ture.
