Amazon, Flipkart to drive growth in cargo segment

FOLLOW US:

New Delhi : The e-retail industry led by the likes of Amazon and Flipkart has brought about a major disruption in the domestic cargo sector with an expected contribution of about Rs 5,000 crore this fiscal, of which the air cargo segment would garner around Rs 1,000 crore, a report said.

The Express Industry Report 2018 said the e-commerce players have challenged the traditional express operations and “unlocked” many opportunities by providing newer avenues for value addition. The domestic express industry is growing at 15 per cent, with the e-retailers being a key driver of growth, it said. Air cargo express will continue to reap dividends from the healthy growth of e-commerce players even as the e-retailers are looking at surface transport for delivery of goods and products, it added.
