As India advances toward its goal to become a $5-trillion economy, micro, small and medium enterprises have a very vital role to play in fuelling the economic growth of the country. With a vast network of 6.3 crore units producing more than 8,000 products, India’s Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) sector already contributes in a significant way. MSMEs account for about 30% of the nominal GDP. In addition, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), which dot the Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities and small towns in India, not only generate revenue and jobs, but form an important part of the economic growth engine as a key participant in the ecosystem.
For a small or medium business owner in India, one of the biggest concerns is delivering goods at the earliest, with minimal cost. What they need is express distribution services which is swift, and offers them a wide reach in terms of geography and of course customisable solutions. It’s no wonder then that SME’s are turning to express distribution leader, Gati-KWE with its expansive reach across the length and breadth of the country, for their requirements.
