Every time I buy something in Amazon or any such e-commerce portal, and choose the ‘Overnight Shipping’ option for a variety of items, I wonder at the mechanism that gather my products from a warehouse several states away and deliver at my door within 24 hours.
That is the marvel of Logistics, the invisible force that makes businesses run seamlessly, all the while remaining as a strong backing power in the background. Logistics runs on speedy delivery of a product in best condition at cheap rates.
Market researcher Novonous says India’s logistics industry is calculated at $300 billion. Going by the report, the country’s logistics market is likely to grow at 12.17% by 2020. With the burgeoning online shopping sector in India, e-commerce companies are expected to invest close to $8 billion in logistics (apart from other things) in the next few years, a recent Assocham-PwC study has mentioned. The e-commerce market in India is expected to touch $80 billion by 2020.
Technological developments in logistics have surely surpassed manual methods in connecting sellers, third-party logistics partners and customers. It has also made possible card on delivery, electronic proof of delivery, etc.
