While mines and minerals being the anchor industries, Food Processing including Marine Food, Electronic Manufacturing, Textiles, Gems & Jewellery, Steel and Aluminum, Petroleum & Chemicals, are sunrise sectors. Under the aegis of policy initiatives to Make India a Manufacturing Hub, the market is bullish about the surge in domestic demand for steel, aluminum and metal products. At the same time marine food sector of Odisha has carved a niche for itself.


Different industries have specific and distinctive requirements to move cargo. Logistics inefficiency is legendary in our country, and manufacturing sector bears the maximum brunt with about 14-17% of production cost being drained due to logistics inefficiency.

Realizing the changing needs of industries in the region, road and rail network are on the upgrade, and coastal shipping and port sector are also adding capacity. Development of container handling terminal at Paradip and others proposed open the ambit to have a multi- modal approach to evacuate cargo. Major port Paradip and non-major ones like Dhamra and Gopalpur are gearing up to serve the surge in cargo variety such as Bulk, Break Bulk and of course Reefer & Non-Reefer Containerized ones. With a proven manufacturing base, it is time to address logistics concerns of Eastern States.

This June, Bhubaneswar will host first ever ‘Smart Logistics Summit’ that is unique in itself as a forum for stakeholders in manufacturing, trade services and EXIM logistics. Expect a meaningful, solution driven business networking summit with a focus on mapping missing infrastructure requirements needed by manufacturers, traders and exporters, and how tailor- made solutions could be derived by major Indian and MNC freight forwarders. The summit is regional in the sense that it is for the industries and trade in the hinterland but at the same time it offers opportunity to experience excellence in supply chain management like none other. On this occasion, Smart Logistics Awards will be bestowed upon for best practices and innovation in supply chain solutions, where every nominee is scrutinized by internationally recognized jury. The platform is open for eminent personalities, industries and associations to nominate.
