FreightBro participated at the 2nd Logix India 2019 – International Buyer Seller Meet, organised by FIEO (Federation of India Export Organizations) in association with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. The three-day event from 12th-14th Dec at Lalit, New Delhi saw astounding participation from 26 countries and 120 International delegates. Mr Som Prakash, Minister of State for Commerce & Industry, inaugurated the event. He mentioned that the government intends to make significant infrastructural investments to provide impetus to lowering Logistics costs to a significant low. With a primary aim to develop superior logistics collaboration between India and other countries, the event also focussed on Technology integration, IT Enablement and rising need for Digitization in the field.
Attended by dignitaries from Ministry of Commerce and Industry and delegates from the likes of NAFL, QFZA, Ceylon National Chamber of Commerce, CONCOR etc, the event saw an impressive footfall. The exhibition area housed 27 stalls that comprised a mix of freight forwarders, port authorities, contract logistics service providers, freight technology solution providers, integrated logistics service providers and real estate providers.
The three days of the 2nd Logix India 2019 comprised of informative sessions and panel discussions by noted representatives of the industry and B2B meetings where delegates from Africa, ASEAN, CIS, LAC, Israel, WANA and SAARC interacted with each other and discovered opportunities for logistics associations with Indian counterparts. The spectrum of the sessions included India Logistics Vision, Qatar: Gateway to the Middle East, Inland Logistics, Aviation Logistics, Marine Logistics, FTWZ and Warehousing etc.
We are pleased to have been a part of this mega event. Given the fact that the industry is undergoing a transformational shift in terms of technology and innovation, this was an excellent opportunity for FreightBro to interact with global businesses and stakeholders. As we strive to attain Logistics Cost of 10% of GDP or lower in India, apart from infrastructural developments, technology is the driver that can enable the same.
