In order to reduce the logistics costs and compete in the global market, Indian companies need to introduce innovative systems and make use of the latest technology available. “The Government is working on lowering logistics cost by improving the existing road network, developing airports and sea ports, building infrastructure, and tapping the potential of waterways in the country,” said Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping.

He was talking at the inauguration of India’s first integrated IT enabled end-to-end supply chain solutions of Future Supply Chain Solutions Limited (FSC) distribution centre at MIHAN on Saturday. This new technology was inaugurated by Gadkari and Kishore Biyani, Group CEO at Future Group.


The previous Government had introduced wrong policies which has plundered the development of the country. They also took years to give permissions to industry to set up manufacturing units in MIHAN. The captains of industry got frustrated and eventually stalled investment proposals and moved out in dismay. To worsen the situation the previous Government created a situation of policy paralysis which failed to attract investments and generate employment in large numbers thereby cheating the people of Vidarbha, Gadkari said.


Gadkari said that he has a vision to provide employment to atleast 50,000 people of Vidarbha. Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra was working to give a big boost to MIHAN. Permissions to set up new industries would be given quickly. The present Government has been successful in attracting many big companies like TCS, Tech Mahindra, Infosys, Shapoorji Pallonji Group and even HCL which would be coming soon at MIHAN. “Any official found stalling and hampering with the permissions would be severely punished,” he added.


The Chief Minister was also working on stopping the farmers suicides by providing irrigation facilities to farmers. The Government proposes to raise funds of the Rs 85,000 crore out of which Rs 36,000 crore would been earmarked for Vidarbha, he said.


MADC had floated a tender to develop the Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport at Nagpur. About six companies have taken part in the tender process and the work would start soon, he noted.


Kishore Biyani said, “The sortex system with new technology, will be the first of its kind in India. It will be a game changer and a stepping stone, making it India’s most automated first-of- it’s-kind GST ready distribution centre.”
Rakesh Biyani, Joint Managing Director of Future Group, P V Sheshadri, CEO of FSC, Devendra Parekh, President of VED, Girish Gandhi and others were present.
