1. Limited or non existence of integrated credible service providers. 1 player offering warehousing, transportation (FTL & LTL), within city distribution, portable cold storage, air freight, etc. 2. Capacity and capability in emerging cities and towns. 3. High cost: Most operate on cost + model, no reverse engineering. 4. Environment: No carbon emission understanding or reduction programmes. 5. Information flow: Lack of real time visibility. 1. Consolidation and expansion: Consolidated between organized and unorganized. Not competing instead complementing each other. 2. Innovation and infra development. LTL, dedicated milk runs, world class warehouses, etc 3. Increased competition. Forcing service providers to work on cost reduction and ancillary revenue. 4. Go green initiatives: Going paperless, newer trucks that emit less, solar energy for warehouses, etc. 5. Technology: Tech start ups specifically focused on logistics & SCM.
