CHAPTER-I1. LOGISTICS INDUSTRY IN INDIA1.1.1 INTRODUCTIONIndia has become the prime destination for logistics service providers all over the world.The demand for logistics services in India has been largely driven by the remarkable growth ofthe economy. The growth is being projected at 9-10 per cent in next few years, with the CAGR(compounded annual growth rate) expected to grow at a rate of 7-8 per cent. This growth isexpected to gain greater momentum due to the exponential growth of the Indian economy. Indiais also experiencing a big retail boom as the buying capacity of the middle and upper middlesegment of the population has scaled new heights. Many large multinationals from the retailindustry are planning to set up operation in India and large local retailers are also planning toexpand their operations. But with the infrastructure largely under-developed and incapable ofcatering to a growing economy, logistics management in India becomes too complex. The poorcondition of infrastructure directly translates to higher turnover, pushing up the operating costsand reducing efficiency. There are other problems such as complex regulatory compliance andlimited adoption and utilization of technology, which has resulted in increased paperwork andinability to communicate effectively with customers.In spite of dismal infrastructural scenario, the hopes of the logistics sector are kept up by thevarious upcoming infrastructural projects like logistics parks and hubs and other initiatives bypublic and private sector. The future of the logistics sector depends not only on the continueddevelopment of infrastructure but also on the capability of the service providers in adaptingthemselves and making optimal utilization of technology.India is emerging as one of the world’s leading consumer market with the raise of middle incomegroup. Estimated at US$991 billion in 2020, Total consumption expenditure is expected togrow to nearly US$ 3.6 trillion in 2020. Food, housing & consumer durable and transport &communication are expected to be the top 3 categories, accounting for 65% of consumption in2020. The FMCG sector alone is expected to grow at a base rate of 12 % annually to become anINR 4000 billion industry by 2020. The logistics sector is expected to play an important role in
accessing this emerging market and enabling this growth.1.1.2 INDUSTRY TRENDSTransportation: Container cargo represents only about 30% (by value) of Indias external trade-much lower when compared with the global containerized cargo average of 70-75%. At a growthrate of 12%, Indias container cargo traffic is estimated to reach 15 million TEUs by FY16E fromabout 7.5 million TEUs now (at 12 major ports). In comparison, China has created capacity atits ports to handle more than 100 million TEUs a year. Out of the 15 mn TEUs of total containertraffic, we estimate Exim rail container traffic to be 5 mn TEUs by FY16E. This would be a hugeopportunity and will significantly benefit container rail operators.Rising investment in the rail and port spaces also fuels growth in allied industries like wagonmanufacturing, port handling equipment, railway electrification systems and constructioncompanies.To reduce the transportation cost and for quicker movement of cargo Multimodal transportoperation is introduced (MTO). MTO helps exporters with less documentation for instance singledocument for all modes of transport.Third Party Logistics (3PL): Outsourcing is everywhere. Logistics industry is no exception.Logistics services like transportation, warehousing, cross docking, Inventory management,packaging and freight forwarding all are part of third party logistic services. Companies in Indiacurrently outsource an estimated of 52% of logistics. And 3PL industry is estimated to be US$1.5bn in FY14. 3PL represents only 1% of logistics cost emphasis its significance in the industry.Future is no doubt lying in outsourcing. As the growth in the 3PL market is expected to be inthe range of 25-30% CAGR over FY11-14E. As of now, the 3PL activity is limited to only fewindustries like automotive, IT hardware, telecom and infrastructure equipment.The organised 3PL market in India can be categorised into three major segments – publicsector, private sector and foreign entrants. Some of the major players in each category are: TVSlogistics, DIESL (TATA), Panalpina, TCI, Gati, Allcargo, V Trans, Total, VRL and Reliance etc.
Private Participation: The industry is becoming more competent with the entry of globalgiants like Gazeley Broekmen (Wal-Marts logistics partner), CH Robinson and Kerry logisticsand large Indian corporate houses like Tata, Reliance and Bharti group. A series of mergersand acquisition like DHL acquired Blue Dart, TNT acquired Speedage Express Cargo Serviceand Fedex bought over Pafex, are also leading to consolidation industry at various levels andsegments. Many of these companies are planning to broaden their areas of operation and are alsoplanning to develop their own logistic parks across the country. If the trend continues as per theestimates, the market share of the organized logistics players is expected to double from 6% in2013 to approx. 12% by 2020.Express logistics: Organised players have monopoly over the express logistics industry. 65%of express business is in the hands of organized players, while semi-organised and unorganisedplayers accounts for 25% and the remaining 10% of the market by EMS Speed Post. Butaltogether different picture can be witnessed in the domestic segment. In domestic front,unorganised players hold 41% of the market share based on price advantage. While organisedplayers accounts for 45% and EMS Speed Post the remaining 14%.Warehouses: Recently, warehouses have become key growth drivers in the logistics industry.Apart from conventional storing services, warehouses now providing value-added services likeconsolidation and breaking up of cargo, packaging, labelling, bar coding and reverse logisticsetc. warehousing and related activities account for approx. 20% of the total logistics industry.Most of the warehousing space in India lies with unorganised players in domestic front, whichis causing wide supply and demand gap in storage space. According to KPMG, an additional120million square feet of warehousing space is needed by 2013 to bridge this gap.Currently, the organised warehousing industry in India has a capacity of approx. 80millionmetric tonnes and is growing at 35 to 40 per cent per annum. An investment of approximatelyUS$ 500million is being planned by various logistics companies for the development of about45million square feet of warehouse space by 2013.Many players in this segment such as MultiModal Logistics Park, Mega Food Parks and Free Trade Warehousing Zones have planned nextgeneration storage models.
Logistic parks: About 110 logistics parks spread over approximately 3,500 acres at an estimatedcost of $1 bn are expected to be operational and an estimated 45 mn ft2 of warehousing spacewith an investment of $ 500 mn is expected to be developed by various logistics companies by2020.Majority of these logistics parks are planned in close proximity to state capitals. However,availability of large land parcels at relatively low cost, connectivity to multiple markets acrossstates and industrial clusters has led to the emergence of some tier-2 and tier-3 cities as favoureddestinations for the development of logistics parks and warehouses.1.1.3 Government Initiatives and regulationsInitiatives:To emphasis the significance of transportation in logistics industry and to increase thecompetence in the sector government introduced private participation, especially in port sector.The major initiative in transport infrastructure is introduction of National Maritime DevelopmentProgram (NMDP) with an investment of Rs 568bn. NMDP would be addressing the challengesof the growing international traffic demand of the country along with developing the portfacilities at par with world standards. While liberalizing the railway services, government openedthe doors of container business to the private parties. A total of 15 players immediately enteredthe market.FDI regulations• In general 100% FDI under the automatic route is permitted for all logistic services• FDI up to 100% subject to FIPB approval is permitted for courier services.• FDI up to 49% under the automatic route is permitted for air transport services, includingair cargo services.• 100% FDI is permitted in Ports and Harbours under automatic route• 100% FDI is permitted under the automatic route for storage and warehousing includingwarehousing of agricultural products with cold storage.
• 100% FDI is permitted in transport and transport support services through automaticroute.1.1.4 Indian Logistics Industry- Future TrendsThere have been several key indicators to the future trend in the Indian logisticssector. The demand for logistics services has been largely driven by the remarkablegrowth of the Indian economy. Logistics spend in India is estimated to be around 13% ofthe GDP, which is comparatively higher than other developed countries.The air transport sector’s contribution has been around 0.2 per cent of the country’sGDP, while the transport sector’s contribution to the GDP has been growing over the lastcouple of years. India’s air cargo is predicted to grow at over CAGR of 11.5 per cent inthe next few years.The contribution of the marine transport sector has also been around 0.2% to thecountry’s GDP. The sector’s contribution to the GDP has been increasing mostly becauseof the growing economic developments in the country. The role of the shipping industryin the growth of Indian economy has been very significant. Major ports in India togetherhave handled around 500 million tonnes of cargo in the past two years and this figure isgrowing significantly.The Indian railways has realised the necessity to improve the infrastructureprovide better service. The plan to develop Logistics Parks or hubs has the potential tostreamline and optimize the supply chain and reduce the costs. Currently around 80% ofthe goods in India move by road, the railways has to essentially devise plans to divert thistraffic to the rail.India’s logistics sector attracted huge investments, leaving behind some of themajor sectors including aviation, metals, and consumer durables. The growths in theretail and manufacturing industry, commodity markets and development of SEZs have
been key factors in the growth of Indian logistics industry. Recent studies have indicatedthat the Indian logistics industry is expected to grow annually at the rate of 15 to 20%. Anumber of infrastructural projects involving warehouse and logistics parks are beingundertaken are expected to be operational in the next 2-3 years.The setting up special economic zones (SEZs) has led to increased logisticsactivities around them. Several logistics parks have come up at locations like Mumbai,Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad because of their excellent port, rail, and roadconnectivity and are witnessing significant investment in infrastructure. Many of thelarge logistics players are in the process of setting up warehouses, container freightstations (CFS), inland container depots(ICD), logistics parks, distribution centers andother facilities to leverage the abundant opportunities. Increase in foreign trade isexpected to further accelerate the demand for logistics services.The future of the Industry is very bright and is sure to witness exponential growthin the coming years. The increased participation of both public and private sector iscrucial for developing logistics and improving supply chain management. Not only dothe logistics companies need to create efficient business to thrive in the logistics sector,but they also need to explore ways for investing energy, costs and time to grow a stronglogistics system

Chapter- II2. Literature Survey2.1.1 LogisticsLogistics is the management of the flow of resources between the point of origin and the point ofdestination in order to meet some requirements, for example, of customers or corporations. Theresources managed in logistics can Include physical items, such as food, materials, equipment,liquids, and staff, as well as abstract items, such as Information, particles, and energy. Thelogistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, materialhandling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security. Thecomplexity of logistics can be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by dedicatedsimulation software. The minimization of the use of resources and time are common motives.2.1.2 Origins and definitionThe term logistics comes from the late 19th century: from French logistique, fromloger to lodge Logistics is considered to have originated in the militarys need to supply itselfwith arms, ammunition, and rations as it moved from a base to a forward position. In the ancientGreek, Roman, and Byzantine Empires, military officers with the title Logistikas wereresponsible for financial and supply distribution matters.The Oxford English Dictionary defines logistics as "the branch of military sciencerelating to procuring, maintaining and transporting material, personnel and facilities."However, the New Oxford American Dictionary defines logistics as "the detailedcoordination of a complex operation involving many people, facilities, or supplies", and theOxford Dictionary online defines it as "the detailed organization and implementation of acomplex operation".Another dictionary definition is "the time-related positioning of resources." As such,logistics is commonly seen as a branch of engineering that creates "people systems" ratherthan "machine systems".According to the Council of Logistics Management, logistics includes the integratedplanning, control, realization, and monitoring of all internal and network-wide material, part, and
product flow, including the necessary information flow, in industrial and trading companiesalong the complete value-added chain (and product life cycle) for the purpose of conforming tocustomer requirements.Logistics is the process of planning, implementing, and controlling the effective andefficient flow of goods and services from the point of origin to the point of consumption.Main logistics targetsLogistics is one of the main functions within a company. The main targets of logisticscan be divided into performance-related and cost-related targets. A few examples are high duedate reliability, short delivery times, low inventory level, and high utilization of capacity. Whendecisions are made, there is a trade-off between targets.Logistics viewpointsInbound logistics is one of the primary processes of logistics, concentrating onpurchasing and arranging the inbound movement of materials, parts, and/or finished inventoryfrom suppliers to manufacturing or assembly plants, warehouses, or retail stores. Outboundlogistics is the process related to the storage and movement of the final product and the relatedinformation flows from the end of the production line to the end user.Logistics fieldsGiven the services performed by logisticians, the main fields of logistics can be brokendown as follows:• Procurement logistics• Production logistics• Distribution logistics• After sales logistics• Disposal logistics• Reverse logistics• Global logistics• Domestics logistics
Procurement logistics consists of activities such as market research, requirements planning,make-or-buy decisions, supplier management, ordering, and order controlling. The targets inprocurement logistics might be contradictory: maximizing efficiency by concentrating on corecompetences, outsourcing while maintaining the autonomy of the company, or minimizingprocurement costs while maximizing security within the supply process.Production logistics connects procurement to distribution logistics. Its main function isto use available production capacities to produce the products needed in distribution logistics.Production logistics activities are related to organizational concepts, layout planning, productionplanning, and control.Distribution logistics has, as main tasks, the delivery of the finished products to thecustomer. It consists of orderprocessing, warehousing, and transportation. Distribution logistics is necessary because the time,place, and quantityof production differs with the time, place, and quantity of consumption.Disposal logistics has as its main function to reduce logistics cost(s) and enhance service(s)related to the disposal of waste produced during the operation of a business.Reverse logistics denotes all those operations related to the reuse of products and materials.The reverse logistics process includes the management and the sale of surpluses, as well asproducts being returned to vendors from buyers.Business logisticsOne definition of business logistics speaks of "having the right item in the right quantityat the right time at the right place for the right price in the right condition to the right customer".As the science of process, business logistics incorporates all industry sectors. Logistics workaims to manage the fruition of project life cycles, supply chains, and resultant efficiencies.Logistics as a business concept evolved in the 1950s due to the increasing complexity of
supplying businesses with materials and shipping out products in an increasingly globalizedsupply chain, leading to a call for experts called "supply chain logisticians". In business, logisticsmay have either an internal focus (inbound logistics) or an external focus (outbound logistics),covering the flow and storage of materials from point of origin to point of consumption (seesupply-chain management). The main functions of a qualified logistician include inventorymanagement, purchasing, transportation, warehousing, consultation, and the organizing andplanning of these activities. Logisticians combine a professional knowledge of each of thesefunctions to coordinate resources in an organization. There are two fundamentally differentforms of logistics: one optimizes a steady flow of material through a network of transport linksand storage nodes, while the other coordinates a sequence of resources to carry out some project.Production logisticsThe term production logistics describes logistic processes within an industry. Productionlogistics aims to ensure that each machine and workstation receives the right product in the rightquantity and quality at the right time. The concern is not the transportation itself, but tostreamline and control the flow through value-adding processes and to eliminate non–value-adding processes. Production logistics can operate in existing as well as new plants.Manufacturing in an existing plant is a constantly changing process. Machines areexchanged and new ones added, which gives the opportunity to improve the production logisticssystem accordingly. Production logistics provides the means to achieve customer response andcapital efficiency. Production logistics becomes more important with decreasing batch sizes. Inmany industries (e.g., mobile phones), the short-term goal is a batch size of one, allowing even asingle customers demand to be fulfilled efficiently.Track and tracing, which is an essential part of production logistics due to product safetyand reliability issues, is also gaining importance, especially in the automotive and medicalindustries.
2.2 Review of literatureThe Indian economy has been growing at an average rate of more than 8 per cent over thelast four years (Srinivas, 2006) putting enormous demands on its productive infrastructure.Whether it is the physical infrastructure of road, ports, water, power etc. or the digitalinfrastructure of broadband networks, telecommunication etc. or the service infrastructure oflogistics – all are being stretched to perform beyond their capabilities. Interestingly, this isleading to an emergence of innovative practices to allow business and public service to operateat a higher growth rate in an environment where the support systems are getting augmentedconcurrently. In this paper, we present the status of the evolving logistics sector in India,innovations therein through interesting business models and the challenges that it faces in yearsto come.Broadly speaking, the Indian logistics sector, as elsewhere, comprises the entire inboundand outbound segments of the manufacturing and service supply chains. Of late, the logisticsinfrastructure has received lot of attention both from business and industry as well as policymakers. However, the role of managing this infrastructure (or the logistics management regimen)to effectively compete has been slightly under-emphasized. Inadequate logistics infrastructurehas an effect of creating bottlenecks in the growth of an economy, the logistics managementregimen has the capability of overcoming the disadvantages of the infrastructure in the short runwhile providing cutting edge competitiveness in the long term. It is here that exist severalchallenges as well as opportunities for the Indian economy. There are several models that seemto be emerging based on the critical needs of the Indian economy that can stand as viable modelsfor other global economies as well.Chandra and Sastry (2004) have pointed towards two key areas that require attention inmanaging the logistics chains across the Indian business sectors – cost and reliable value addservices. Logistics costs (i.e., inventory holding, transportation, warehousing, packaging, lossesand related administration costs) have been estimated at 13-14 per cent of Indian GDP which ishigher than the 8 per cent of USA’s and lower than the 21 per cent of China’s GDP (Sanyal,2006a). Service reliability of the logistics industry in emerging markets, like India, has beenreferred to as slow and requiring high engagement time of the customers, thereby, incurring highindirect variable costs (Dobberstein et. al, 2005).
However, the Indian logistics story is one with islands of excellence though there hasbeen a general improvement on almost all parameters. It is this aspect that we explore further inthis paper. The paper is organized as follows: the next section gives a brief introduction of someof the peculiarities of the Indian logistics sector.

4.1. Container Corporation of India Limited (CONCOR)Container Corporation of India Limited (CONCOR) was set up in March of the year1988 and commenced operation from November of the year 1989 taking over the existingnetwork of 7 Inland Container Depots (ICDs) from the Indian Railways to profitably satisfy thecustomers needs for high- quality, cost-effective logistics services. From its humble beginning,it is now an undisputed market leader having the largest network of 57 ICDs/CFSs in Indiaoffering scheduled and on demand rapid rail and road services between the hinderland and ports,and between major metros.In addition to providing inland transport by rail for containers, it has also expanded tocover management of Ports, air cargo complexes and establishing cold-chain. It has and willcontinue to play the role of promoting containerization of India by virtue of its modern railwagon fleet, customer friendly commercial practices and extensively used InformationTechnology.The company developed multimodal logistics support for Indias International andDomestic containerization and trade. CONCORs core business is characterised by three distinctactivities, that of• Carrier,• Terminal operator• Warehouse operatorCONCOR had been certified to ISO/IEC 27001: 2005 standard for establishing andmaintaining Information Security Management System (ISMS) for its IT functionality.CONCOR had commissioned seven container transfer/handling facilities during the year 1990.In addition to three ICDs at Ahmedabad, Pune & Hyderabad, two full-fledged Container FreightStations (CFSs) were commissioned at Moradabad and Panipat as cargo consolidation andclearance centres with linkage to the OCD at New Delhi.The Company had commissioned Port Side Container Terminal (PSCT) at Todiarpet inMarch of the year 1991, situated in the vicinity of Chennai Harbor. A similar terminal wascommissioned at Wadi Bunder in close proximity of Mumbai Port in April of the year 1991. In1992-93, the company achieved the first ever movement of refrigerated cargo containers by rail.CONCOR had introduced this service to give a boost to export frozen and chilledproducts. CONCOR commissioned Inland Containers Depots at Tughalakabad in Delhi andWhitefield in Bangalore during the year 1993. In addition, the first phase of expansion andupgradation of ICD a Tondiarpet in Chennai was commissioned and completed during the sameperiod. During the year 1994, the company made a small footstep as a Multi modal transportoperator and also as a consultancy organization for multi-modalism.
The Government of India disinvested 20% of its equity shares in the company. A newCFS was commissioned in 1995 at New Mulund (Mumbai) and a new export warehouse of thecompany also started at ICD, Sabarmati. In the same year CONCOR obtained approval fromWorld Bank to increase the quantity of wagons to be procured in the second Tranche from 750 to1500. Scheduled reefer services between ICD Thughlakabad during the year 1996 and also in thesame period the Muboni Port was introduced.The new ICDs were commissioned at Agra in November of the year 1996, linked withports directly by road ICD Tughlakabad by rail and another ICDs were commissioned at Nagpurin January of the year1997, a rail linked with the twin ports of Mumbai and SNPT. In January ofthe year 1997, the CONTRACK services were launched by the company offering movement ofpiecemeal domestic cargo in containers through specialized, scheduled and reliable container-railservices.Two new ICDs of the company were commissioned, one at Moradabad in February ofthe year 1998 and the other at Malanpur/Gwalior in June of the year 1998. Second bondedwarehouse was commissioned at ICD/Whitefield. The Company had launched a daily servicebetween Chennai port and Whitefield ICD, Bangalore in the year 1999. During the year 2000,CONCOR had fashioned a separate domestic division to give a major heighten to the companysgrowing interest in domestic container movement.The Company had introduced an express parcel service vans between Chennai andDelhi. Private sector warehousing company, Continental Warehousing Corporation had enteredinto a strategic alliance with CONCOR in the identical year 2000 for handling domestic cargo.The Company had launched a fixed-day fixed-time weekly freight service between Shalimar(Howrah)& Mumbai and Shalimar & Ahmedabad with transshipment at Nagpur during the year2001.CONCOR had introduced Asias biggest ICD at Dadri in the year 2003. In the same yearthe company made a tie up with Kolkata Port Trust to provide services to shippers to transportcontainers using sea rail-mode between Nepal and Kolkata Dock Systems (KDS). During theyear 2004, CONCOR inked pact with Transworld to set up CFS at Dadri, forged alliance withAPL for box freight station at Dadri complex and also inked pact with APEDA for movement ofperishable goods.A joint venture for Management and operations of Rail Container Terminal in Birgunj(Nepal) was also finalized in form of M/s Himalayan Terminals and its was commissionedduring July of the year 2004. During the year 2004-05, the company had commissioned fourRubber Tyred Gantry Cranes (RTGs), two at ICD/Dadri and other two at ICD/ Dandharikalan(Ludhiana). Gateway Terminal India (Pvt) Ltd, a joint venture company of Maersk and thecompany formed an arm for the construction of 3rd container terminal at JN Port, it wascommenced construction work during the year 2005-06.
CONCOR & GDL had collectively signed agreement during the year 2005 for providingtrain services to transport EXIM container traffic. The Company had inked a MoU with BaxiGroup in the year 2006.
