Warehousing plays a very vital role in promoting agriculture marketing and ensuring food security in the country. The warehousing capacity available in India, in public, co-operative and private sector is over 112 MT and another 35 MT of warehousing capacity is required during the 12th Five Year Plan for storing all major crops highlighting the huge demand-supply mismatch. About 70 per cent of warehousing space is owned by government agencies. The warehouses in India lack in optimal size, adequate design, ventilation facility, inventory management and storage system as they have been built following the traditional norms. Insufficient and inefficient infrastructure has been a major drawback of warehousing sector.

Dynamic market requirements have made it imperative for Indian warehousing players to overcome challenges, as well as maintain, improve and sustain competitiveness. The Government has eased FDI norms and is promoting PPPs to pump in more investments in warehouses. The Government recognizes that development of cold chain is an essential in upgrading India’s food processing industry and therefore offers many incentives for promoting growth.

Despite its strategic importance in the Indian economy, the Indian warehousing sector confronts several challenges. The challenges and concerns need to be addressed with collaborative efforts among all stakeholders, including the government and its agencies, policy makers, entrepreneurs, investors; logistics service providers, manufacturers, farmers and sellers.
