The growing contribution of foreign trade has helped Indian economy become double since the last decade. Foreign trade represented 20% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2000, which increased to 42% in 2012. This development has been accompanied by a phenomenal rise in the volume of freight traffic movement. Being one of the largest consumer markets in the world, India’s logistics sector is driven by industries such as automobile, pharmaceuticals, Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and retail. Furthermore, the government of India lays emphasis on increasing manufacturing and exports. This has made logistics an imperative sector to achieve the desired levels of development foreseen for the country.
Seasoned expertise to your service

It handles air and sea shipments besides providing services like custom clearance, warehousing, trucking and insurance as per customer’s requirements. The core team of the company had already been working in Logistics industry for years. They had gained knowledge and understanding through partnership in a freight forwarding company.

The strong relationship between domestic & international trade and logistics infrastructure is widely accepted. While growth in trade stimulates the requirement for supporting infrastructure, availability of infrastructure at competitive rates promotes trade and improves global competitiveness of a country. In developing countries such as India, an efficient logistics infrastructure can reduce cost of transportation which in turn can contribute directly to economic development. However, India lags behind several other countries in the global setup in terms of logistics infrastructure and services. Inadequate infrastructure is the major bottleneck impacting the development of logistics and the efficient movement of cargo in the country. Cargopeople has been a force to reckon with during all these years of operation.
