AMTOI Day 2018 showcases business opportunities in NE
NAILESH GANDHI, PRESIDENT, AMTOI, emphasises that the AMTOI will be formulating programmes to connect with the youth in the Northeast and attract them to the logistics industry.
Gandhi has stated that youngsters of today can become logistics professionals, entrepreneurs or associate with AMTOI in the Northeast. He stressed that AMTOI will be going from strength to strength this year through important initiatives. For one, it will be setting up Councils for specific logistics verticals. A beginning has already been made with the NVOCC Council and Tank Operators Council, he said. “Besides, this year there will be special focus on the role of technology, which is today disruptive and changing the business model itself. This disruption will have to be embraced,” the AMTOI President said. AMTOI has appointed a consulting firm which will help it understand the technology related changes happening in the industry, and also to come up with a white paper on the way forward for the industry with regard to technology and how AMTOI can help its SME members with this change. In this regard, AMTOI will also be setting up a Technology Council, having specialists from outside, which will guide members on the technological changes and how they can be incorporated in the day-to-day functioning.
Ravindra Gandhi, Hon. Treasurer, AMTOI stressed that this is a starting point for opening up new logistics opportunities in the Northeast for the locals as well as AMTOI members. He highlighted the government’s special focus on the Northeast, its Look East Policy for closer relations with SouthEast Asia and initiatives like the IndoBangladesh protocol for boosting trade through water and other modes.
