The size of the logistics industry in India is estimated at USD 215 billion, with the express logistics sector emerging as one of the fastest-growing logistics segments with a 15% revenue CAGR for the past 5 years. With the increased use of technology, greater digitalisation, and the adoption of new-age technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain, it is estimated that the industry will be worth USD 1250 billion by 2028.
