EXECUTIVE SUMMARYThe Indian economy has witnessed fast-pacedgrowth over the last decade, making it one of the preferred investment destination formultinational corporations and a recognisedmanufacturing hub to the world. This, in turn, hasresulted in increased demand for world-classlogistics and warehousing services in India,leading to the growth and transformation of thissector. The logistics sector has been growing atan impressive rate of 8 to 10 per cent perannum since 2002 to touch revenues of $100

Global Logistics Report ranks India 39 amongst150 countries in terms of logistics performanceduring the year as well as its future potential.Further, the Indian logistics industry is expectedto grow annually at the rate of 15 to 20 percent, reaching revenues of approximatelyUS$ 385 billion by 2015. The accelerated growthof the logistics industry, coupled with anincreasing trend to outsource warehousingactivities, has made India a vast and untappedmarket.For most domestic players logistics has for longbeen restricted to the basic transportation of goods. Traditionally, warehousing – which is animportant constituent of the logistics sector – has been dominated by small players with lowcapacities and poor deploying, handling, stackingand monitoring technologies. Erratic powersupply and prolonged outages also meant lowdependence on technology. India's archaicwarehousing system was detrimental to thegrowth of almost all sectors, especially sectorslike food and food-processing that requiresmodern warehouses and investments in coldchains and allied machinery.With increasing demand (from both MNCs andIndian companies) and growing requirements, theIndian logistics industry has expanded itsbouquet of services to now include warehouse-related activities as well. Interestingly, the role of a warehouse too has transformed – from atraditional storehouse to a place where theinventory is efficiently managed, with greateremphasis being laid on value-added services, suchas packaging, labelling, bar coding and reverselogistics.All these factors have led to the rapid growth of the organised warehousing industry in India.Growing at the rate of 35 to 40 per cent perannum, the warehousing industry is capturing theimagination of various logistics players, bothdomestic as well as international. Warehousingactivities account for about 20 per cent of the
