CILT India Hosts Entire Value Chain of India’s Logistics and Transport Sectors

CILT India

The Capital witnessed a two-day expo and conference on the Logistics and Transport sectors on the theme - Rediscovering India’s Logistic Sector: Efficiency, Costs & Technology. The expo was organized by the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport – India (CILT India) in association with Exhibitions India Group at the National Rail Museum in New Delhi on November 21-22, and was supported by the Union Ministries of Commerce & Industry, Railways, Shipping, Road Transport & Highways, and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship.

Inaugurating the expo, General (Dr. VK Singh (Retd.), Hon'ble Minister of State, Ministry of Road, Transport & Highways, said, “The logistics sector has been growing in India; it is presently pegged at $160 billion, and expected to grow to $215 billion in the next year-and-half. This growth, compatible with the way infrastructure is moving, will make a remarkable difference. The Government is making efforts to ensure that both the logistics and the infra sector will continue to grow side-by-side. The need of the hour is to create more expressways and highways. Today, we have about 5.5 million kms of roads, of which, the national highways carry 40% or more of the heavier loads, and is only 2.29% of this 5.5 million. Hence, the government needs to create more expressways and better highways so that the various corridors get linked within a short timeframe.”

Also present was Shri Suresh Prabhu, Hon'ble Member of the Rajya Sabha. He observed, “I would like to appreciate the great contribution made by the professionals in the transport and logistics sector to address the challenges being faced in the country with logistics being a major hurdle in realising India’s true potential for growth. In this event, solutions available in the country and in the world will be showcased so that people can address the challenges.”
