In India, this exhibition aims to enhance the industry’s capabilities by promoting best practices and facilitating knowledge sharing among key stakeholders.

Given the Interim Budget 2024’s heightened emphasis on sectors like infrastructure development, food processing, and pharmaceuticals, India is poised to become a crucial export hub in the global economy. This underscores the necessity for top-notch transport and logistics solutions to accommodate the escalating volumes of EXIM trade across both established and emerging trade routes.
