After seeing success in implementing GST to remove the interstate barrier in moving cargo, this policy should help integrate local supply chains with international supply chains better.

This will help Government achieve its dream by moving the logistic cost for busin ess from 13-14 % to a single di git. Moreover, in the long run, this initiative will create a single-window e-logistics market and focus on the gene ration of employment, skill development, and competitiveness among medium and small enterprises. The reduce d logistics cost and increased efficiencies will energise the economy across sectors in multiple ways and take us many steps closer to emerging as a global manufacturing powerhouse.”
