Several factors are responsible for the growth of transportation industry. The major challenges include changing tax system and the increased growth in automobile, FMCG and pharmaceutical and retail industries. Increasing competition and entry of foreign players have been a great challenge for the transportation industry.
The widely distributed nature of the country is another challenge where the remote locations are totally cut off from communication and are hard to reach. The volatile demands and the preference of the customers are also a key challenge.
Infrastructure is the biggest challenge in the transportation industry, and it can deter growth. Bad roads, poor connectivity, lack of development of transports like inland waterways, railways and domestic aviation could be irritants in the growth process. Infrastructural bottlenecks increase the cost per transaction. Another major challenge confronted is the lack of skilled labour and high fragmentation in the industry.
Growth in the sector
The transportation industry is seeing growth with economic liberalisation and relaxation of FDI norms. The introduction of various taxes is expected to decrease the number of warehouse manufacturers and result in the increase in the demand for logistics solutions. The GPS and other tracking systems help a great deal in promoting customer satisfaction and expanding the customer base.
The opportunities are rife in the transportation industry and with markets stabilising this growth is assured to be steady.
