After resounding footfall at the 'Smart Logistics Summit & Awards' at Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Amaravati and Bhubaneswar, the latest stop for the elite series is national capital New Delhi.

Smart Logistics Summit is a unique platform to reach out to the shippers in deep hinterland, understand their pain points in moving cargo, analyze existing logistic bottlenecks and try to find how service providers could offer better solution for an efficient and smart movement of cargo.

NCR region with an ever-exploding population has been the nerve center of supply chain industry, manufacturers and traders. Delhi and satellite cities of Gurugram, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Noida with a population base of more than 25 million, a diversified economy consisting of service industries, hub of auto components, textiles & apparel, processed & non-processed food products, consumer goods, metal & engineering, chemical, and e-commerce et al make a perfect investment pitch for itself in warehousing and distribution space.

The ports in Maharashtra and Gujarat have served as major gateways for Delhi and NCR, besides there are also cargo movement to Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru as well. Being a landlocked region, ICDs have also flourished in this area. India's biggest ICD, Concor operated ICD Tughlakabad, is the testimony to the cargo generating ability of the region. There are many more public and private company managed container depots have been able to co-exist in the hinterland due to the growing consumerism and cargo demand. Despite the economic, trade and cargo potential, the region has been forced to slowdown due to various constrains. The much delayed infrastructure upgradation has forced a sluggish cargo movement as the road and rail network have been prioritized for people movement. It is time to ponder into many such challenges, and this could be possible when the shippers and logistics service providers meets and elucidates the needs.

It is time to look beyond the traditional, and discover some contemporary tech-enabled 'SMARTER LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS' to transport valued cargo to the desired destinations with 'EASE'.
