Logistics and warehousing experts from industry, think tanks, academia interacted in a closed door dialogue with the State government and provided suggestions on the role government and industry can play in creating multiple logistics hubs, said a press release from the Institute.

State governments will find the compendium as a valuable handbook that can help policy makers understand various good practices and develop a unified vision.
