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.
