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 handles 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 future.
