Indian roads have become the predominant mode of transportation of freight cargo. Estimate of the modal movement of cargo highlights that in India nearly 61% of the cargo is moved by road, 30% by rail and rest by airway, pipeline and inland waterways. Freight movement in India is dependent on National Highways. While they constitute only about 2% of Indian road network, they carry nearly 40% of the total traffic. As a result most of these highways are severely congested, resulting in freight traveling only a third of the distance compared to developed countries.
Various estimates put the market size of the Indian logistics sector to be between USD 90-125 billion.  Sources also estimate that the industry employs over 45 million people and is growing at a rate of 15%. The annual logistics cost in India is estimated to be 14% of the GDP, which translates into USD 140 billion and almost 99% of this is accounted for by the unorganized sector and slightly more than 1%, i.e. approximately USD 1.5 billion, is contributed by the organized sector. If India can bring down its logistics cost from 14% to 9% of the GDP i.e. at the level in the US, savings to the tune of USD 50 billion will be realized at the current GDP levels.
With an objective of discussing various policy and regulatory issues and dynamic developments in the Road Transportation and Logistics sector in India, ASSOCHAM is organizing a National Summit “ Building an Efficient Road Transport & Logistics – Issues and Challenges” 9:30 a.m. on August 7, 2013 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi.
We have invited Shri Oscar Fernandes, Hon’ble Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways, Shri Vijay Chhibber, Secretary, Department of Road Transport & Highways, Government of India and other important government functionaries from concerned departments.
In view of the importance of the subject, we would request you to kindly attend this important Summit and also nominate your colleagues to attend the same. We would also request your organization to be the PARTNER / SPONSOR of the Summit as per details enclosed for your kind reference.
