Market Size and Expected Growth of the Indian Transport and Logistics Sector

According to a report by the World Bank, India?s transport sector is large and diverse; it caters to the needs of 1.1 billion people. In 2007, the sector contributed about 5.5 percent to the nation?s GDP, with road transportation contributing the lion?s share. Good physical connectivity in the urban and rural areas is essential for economic growth.

The non-polluting and environment-friendly hand carts are one of the cheapest modes of intra-city transport. They play a pivotal role in providing point-to-point connectivity, helping people reach nearby markets, railway stations and bus terminals and allowing them to commute short distances in narrow lanes where cars and auto rickshaws cannot easily travel. They are also useful for making intra-city deliveries and help in timely operations of many industrial units. Lately, these have become an indispensable feeder service for many in India and rise in the demand for such transport facilities has added to the employment opportunities for Hand Cartman nationwide.
