The Logistics division in the Department of Commerce was created consequent to the amendment to the second schedule of the Government of India (Allocation of Business) Rules, 1961, on 7th July 2017, that allocated the task of “Integrated development of Logistics sector” to the Department of Commerce. The division is headed by a Special Secretary to Govt of India and has been given the mandate to develop an Action Plan for the integrated development of the logistics sector in the country, by way of policy changes, improvement in existing procedures, identification of bottlenecks and gaps and introduction of technology in this sector.

The planned activities of the Logistics division shall have an impact not only on the domestic movement of goods by bringing down the overall cost and increasing the speed and ease of goods movement, but shall also contribute towards making Indian goods more competitive in the global market. With the improvement in India’s ranking in the Logistics Performance Index (LPI), Indian exports shall automatically see an enhanced growth.
