Currently the annual logistics cost of the world is estimated at about USD 3.5 Trillion. India spends around 14.4% of its GDP on logistics and transportation as compared to less than 8% by the other developing countries. Indian freight transport market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.35% by 2020 driven by the growth in manufacturing, retail, FMCG and e-commerce sectors. Freight transport market in India is expected to be worth US$ 307.70 billion by 2020. In India Road Freight constitutes around 63% of the total freight movement consisting of 2.2 million heavy duty trucks and 0.6 million light duty trucks annually. The road freight movement is expected to increase at a CAGR of 15%. The Sea Freight consists of around 9% of the total freight market and is mainly used as a major mode for imports and exports. The air freight consists of around 1% of the total freight market in India which will grow around 12.5% CAGR over the next 5 years. 
Companies in India currently outsource an estimated 52% of logistics and 3PL represents only 1% of logistics cost. In developing countries like India, an efficient logistics infrastructure can reduce the cost of transportation which in turn can contribute directly to economic development. However, investments in the logistics sector in the form of Port infrastructure development, Dedicated Freight Corridors, development of national highways, expanding the reach of the railways will play a central role in the future of this industry. According to the survey conducted by the Transport intelligence in 2013 ranks India as the second most attractive logistics market in the future after China. In India, about 110 new logistics parks are expected to be operational with an estimated cost of USD 1 Bn. Hence, India offers huge opportunities in development of logistics services, infrastructure and multi modal transportation, etc.
Therefore, with the objective of discussing the various issues, opportunities and future direction of this industry, ASSOCHAM is organizing a National Summit “LOGISTICS INDIA 2016” at 9:30 am on May 4, 2016 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi. We have invited Hon’ble Ministers of Road Transport, Railways & Civil Aviation to Address the participants at the summit.The Summit will be attended by large number of manufacturers, service providers including national and international stakeholders and will focus on making logistics a vibrant sector of Indian Economy.
