India’s logistic industry is besieged with a host of issues. Despite holding promise, the logistics sector in India remains mired in several complexities which have the potential of holding it back. These include significant inefficiencies in transportation, poor condition of storage infrastructure, complex tax structure, low rate of technology adoption and poor skills of the logistics professionals.

The biggest challenge that faces this sector is that they should quickly imbibe latest technologies and uncork new services to cater to corporates seeking to outsource their logistics needs. In fact, the trend in the industry is towards the third party logistics (3PL) concept as multinational companies in industries such as automotive, IT, and consumer goods have outsourced supply chain activities to third parties. While such business opportunities have been welcomed, they also change the risk profile of these Service Providers.

In addition to traditional risks – failing to deliver products on time and losing shipments – they must worry about mistakes made in a range of new service areas. The future of the Indian Logistics Industry lies not just in value propositions for the customer, but also in the quality of risk mitigation measures undertaken.
