The current issue of Indian Transport & Logistics News outlines India’s port infrastructure and what it needs to do in order to meet rising demand on account of growing imports and exports to and from India. While the larger ports of India become the global gateways, it is the smaller and non-major ports around India’s coast that serve the spillover demand. Going paperless is a priority for the air cargo industry. In our special feature on e-freight initiatives, Reji John finds out that while the digitisation process by the air cargo community is slow, the pressure is mounting on the industry players to speed up the processes. Our focus airline for this issue is Emirates. The Middle-Eastern carrier has a strong presence in the Indian market and is poised to grow as the airline is very focused on expansions, new initiatives, and additional capacity, reports Jasleen Kaur. The newly opened Hamad International Airport at Doha is our airport-in-focus. The giant facility will have an annual capacity of 50 million passengers as well as public spaces for art exhibitions. Increasing intra-Asia trade is not only limited to the developments in China alone. Read about how the general rise of domestic demand in Asia, including India, Indonesia and Vietnam, is also spurring air cargo growth in the region. With the Indian manufacturing companies increasingly relying on multimodal transportation, the potential for this logistics segment is enormous. In our industry report, Jasleen Kaur points out that to get the full benefit, there is an urgent need to fix the infrastructure gaps, increase the container penetration, and accelerate investment in infrastructure through the PPP model. In an exclusive interview, Srinivas Sattiraju of Delex Cargo talks about the game changing trends in the supply chain space, talent acquisition and the position Delex keeps in the rapidly evolving supply chain industry.
