Recent Developments in the Transport/Logistics/Warehousing Sector

As the Indian economy grows and the operating system evolves, several macro trends will shape the supply chain design. Greater and more intense competition and global value chains are leading to substantial shifts in what is expected of the supply chain function. It is no longer enough to simply connect supply and demand at optimal cost and service levels. Today?s businesses are demanding more from their supply chains, including competitive advantage.

A definite rise in the number of women in Indian logistics industry has been witnessed and the day is not too far when women would have equal participation. Both private companies and the government have taken initiatives to improve the transport and supply chain system in India. Given the recent trends in the market, job opportunities for Director, Transport are expected to increase.
