Logistics sector to benefit from National Logistics Portal Back to News & Events List


The government's plan to develop a National Logistics Portal as a single online window to link all stakeholders will significantly help the logistics industry by dealing with a single ministry than with seven
different ministries, said R Dinesh, Joint Managing Director, TV Sundram Iyengar & Sons Pvt Ltd, and Deputy Chairman, CII Southern Region.

CII Institute of Logistics had in January signed a memorandum of understanding with the Commerce Ministry and to get one core ministry with which the industry could deal with all major issues.

Earlier, there were seven different ministries, including railways, highways and civil aviation. Now, it will be a single portal. This is the single biggest change with this common portal coming, he said reacting to setting up of the portal, which will be developed by the Department of Commerce.

The portal will also mean more focus on digitisation, which will bring significant improvement in ease of doing business, he said.
