The government is eyeing seamless transfer of logistics data across various ministries by November.
The policy launched by PM, aims to reduce the cost of logistics in India to be comparable to global benchmarks by 2030; improve India's ranking in the Logistics Performance Index from 44 in 2018 to within the top 25 by 2030; and create a data-driven decision support mechanism for an efficient logistics ecosystem.
Some of the snapshots from the current of logistics are
1.The government plans to decrease the logistic cost from 13% to 7.5-8%
2. The National Logistics Policy seeks to bring flexibility in logistics services, and human resources through streamlining processes.
3. Courier companies, cold chain players, freight startups, and logistics and supply chain digitalizing firms have advantages from Unified Logistics Interface Platform (ULIP), launched as part of the National Logistics Policy, that provide existing 30 data sources of ministries
As said by Mr. Anurag Jain, Secretary, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), “We are reconciling the complete legacy data by the first week of November actually, everything would be shifted to this”
