The world is moving at a faster pace, and getting what we want quickly is the mantra of our time. Gone are the times when people used to visit brick-and-mortar-stores for their daily essentials. Today's technological advancement and the emergence of the internet have changed the course of our history. Right from taxi apps like Uber to delivery apps like Zomato; these big-league apps are ruling the market. Transportation is changing - it is no longer the same as it used to be!
Earlier logistics was perceived as a vertical which involved the transportation of goods from one location to another. Now, the scenario has completely changed since the arrival of online truck booking apps like Vahak.
The logistic sector in the country; particularly the one pertaining to inter-city movement, is highly unorganized.
This space is currently highly fragmented with a huge number of unorganized players like SME-sized transporters, agents, brokers and fleet owners etc. Only 10-15% of the $215 billion Indian logistic markets is owned by organized players.
While there is a requirement to reduce the overall logistic cost from 14% of GDP now to 10% of GDP by 2022; the Indian transport market needs to be more efficient.
If that's the case:
How can the Indian transport market be made more efficient while lowering the overall logistics cost?
