Recent Developments in the Transport/Logistics/Warehousing Sector

Road transport is still the dominant mode of transportation both for moving goods and passengers. India has a huge network of roads comprising of National Highways, State Highways, Major District Roads and Village and other roads. The road network is assuming a pivotal role in the movement of goods and passengers. There has been a substantial shift in the mode of transportation from railways towards the road sector. While the railways handle only 40% of the freight and 20% of the passengers load, 60% of the goods and 80% of passenger?s movement takes place through roads. It is anticipated that the function of the road network will further increase in the foreseeable future.

Apart from this shift, there has also been a rise in job openings for many job roles namely Road Transport Clerks, Traffic Manager, Locomotive Engineer, Railroad Conductors, Subway Operators, Customs Department Officers, etc. Women have also started to take up jobs in this sector. Given the recent trends in the market job opportunities for Goods Supervisor, Road Transport are also expected to increase.
