Dileepa. B.M, CEO Bonded Truck­ing, Shreeji Translo­gis­tics Lim­ited, says, “There is need of in­vest­ments by the gov­ern­ment and pri­vate sec­tors in the large in­fra­struc­ture projects to im­prove mul­ti­modal trans­porta­tion through land bridges, rail-road in­land wa­ter­ways sea, LASH, Ro-Ro, etc. Apart from the need of the ship­pers to move the car­goes on a door-to-door ba­sis the need of pro­mot­ing mul­ti­modal trans­port is also aris­ing from some typ­i­cal is­sues be­ing faced by the trans­port sec­tor across the globe with re­spect to : in­creas­ing fuel price, con­ges­tion on high­ways, work­ing time di­rec­tive, driver short­ages. The need for long-term plan­ning ap­plies to the de­vel­op­ment of trans­port in­fra­struc­ture in par­tic­u­lar like ports, air­ports, roads, rail­roads, bridges, tun­nels – they all have com­mon el­e­ments that span the life cy­cles span in decades, if not cen­turies. This re­quires long-term fore­cast­ing of the de­mand for trans­port in­fra­struc­ture.
