  sectors Logistics / Free Trade Warehousing Zones

The logistics industry is witnessing a quantum growth as a consequence of the sustained and robust growth in manufacturing and services sector, both domestic and EXIM trade, liberalized market and increasing levels of disposable income.


Government of India has introduced Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the manufacturing and retail sector. With a larger number of foreign investors entering the Indian market, better logistics practices are expected in the coming years. As India's retail sector opens up on a huge scale, domestic logistics companies are planning significant investments to expand their portfolio of services. It is expected that in the next two years, the logistics sector will have undergone major changes, offering a wide spectrum of value added services such as labeling, packing, kitting, reverse logistics etc.
