Growing costs of logistics has forced industry and trade to adopt cost effective logistics solutions to move the cargo. India's traditional dependence on road even for long distances is looked at as a serious constraint and concerns are rising to improve the other modes of transportation viz. rail and coastal shipping. Association of Multimodal Transport Operators of India (AMTOI) comes up with a unique event AMTOI Business Forum aimed at developing multimodal transportation in India. The forum, while highlighting the importance for multimodal transportation, also revolves around the need to innovate, adopt best practices and align business in tune with customer requirements.
