2014-04-02 21:31:02 - India Freight Transport Report Q1 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
India´s state-run major ports continue to be the underperformers in the BRIC country´s freight transport infrastructure, with volumes at many facilities struggling to grow. Ports have also been harmed by a ban on iron ore mining, and a fall in exports to Europe. A case in point is the Jawaharlal Nehru Port, India´s largest in terms of containers handled, which has seen a decrease in its box throughput as it continues to chase the elusive fourth terminal. We see strong growth potential in the air freight sector, however, as air freight and logistics companies look to capitalise on India´s growing pharmaceuticals export market, though national carrier Air India will struggle to take on this mantle given its financial constraints. The
opening up of the air sector to foreign players could provide a boost to the market.
