Indian Western Dedicated Rail Freight Corridor (WDFC) and Its Impact on Logistics, 2017-2041 - Strategic Analysis & Outlook - ResearchAndMarkets.com

January 3, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 3, 2019--The “Strategic Analysis of the Indian Western Dedicated Rail Freight Corridor and Its Impact on Indian Logistics, 2017-2041” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

With the construction of the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC), India will explore new opportunities along the corridor to best utilise its capacity and efficiency in the transportation of freight.

Indian cold chain logistics will benefit from this due to the demand for fresh produce to be conveniently delivered to end users at their door steps. This would also allow import of goods on a global scale as people start demanding goods all-year round irrespective of domestic seasonal availability, as they can be transported and stored in refrigerated trucks and cold storage warehouses.

Consumption of cold stored products is becoming increasingly popular in India, with a large working population seeking convenience in fresh produce that is preserved for longer shelf life. This growing need for cold stored products and off-season products around the year, is beneficial for setting up cold storage facilities in and around the dedicated freight corridors and in-freight trains.

Cold chain logistics in India is fragmented and is highly unorganized, allowing international participants in the cold chain market to take charge of the market and have more organised distribution of consumer products. Opening the market for international participants would allow new, innovative logistics technology to be available in India and would enable existing participants in the Indian logistics market to adopt them through intelligent partnerships with the companies entering the market.

Freight transportation in India is expected to have a 15% year-on-year increase for the next decade due to the growing demand for imported products for consumption and cold storage products among the urban working population.
