Mr. Girish Pillai, Adviser - Infrastructure, Railway Board in his special address said, "Dedicated Industrial corridors all acrosss the country will make tremendous difference to the manufacturing sector which is going down.

Private containers, rail side warehousing, investment in infrastructure, support in last mile connectivity are some of the avenues. Also, 3rd party logistics help decrease overall logistics costs. A model shift from road to rail and a model mix of logistics is required."

The government has also proposed to develop other ports to be developed under PPP Mode" he said.
