Integrated logistics is the key to competitive advantage: Suresh Prabhu

Stressing on integration as an important factor in logistics, Suresh Prabhu, Former Minister of Commerce & Industry and Civil Aviation, Government of India, says, “The biggest hurdle the Indian business faces, among other barriers, is logistics. We must distinguish between logistics and infrastructure. Infrastructure is basic necessity for logistics but just by creating infrastructure one cannot address the problem of logistics. Even today, if we can make an optimum use of infrastructure available in our country, that itself will solve the problem of logistics to a greater extent. Despite investing enough into infrastructure in the last decade or two, the logistics problem has not been solved. What we need to focus on is integration in the logistics industry.”
