Tamil Nadu pushed back to the eighth position in Logistics

 Tamil Nadu which used to be a leader in manufacturing industry in 1970s has been pushed back to the eighth position in the ranking among states for efficiency in the Logistics sector. The poor ranking is despite the fact the state has three major ports, string of minor ports besides largest lorry infrastructure in Namakkal.

Punjab, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan are ahead of the southern state besides manufacturing giants Maharashtra and Gujarat. Telengana and Chattisgarh are behind Tamil Nadu as per the Logistics ease across states LEADs index released by the Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu earlier this week at the National capital.

Gujarat, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh are the best performing states in the country with regard to mobility of goods and efficiency of the Logistics chain. They are followed by Karnataka, Maharashtra, Haryana, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Chattisgarh.

The states on the bottom of the ladder include Assam Bihar and Jammu and Kashmir.

The report is based on the countrywide inputs received from various stakeholders in the logistics sector, among them being shippers, Logistics service providers, terminal operators and transporters. This is the first such index developed by the commerce ministry and US consultancy firm Deloitte. It ranks states in terms of the Logistical support they provided to the merchandise trade.
