Logistics is defined as a business planning framework for the management of material, service, information and capital flows. It includes the increasingly complex information, communication and control systems required in today's business environment. It is also defined as the procurement, maintenance, distribution, and replacement of personnel and material. A typical logistics framework consists of physical supply, internal operations and physical distribution of goods and services. Logistics is a critical component relevant across agriculture, manufacturing and service sectors and has to be optimally managed for smooth functioning of production and distribution operations. Additionally, logistics cost accounts for a major component of the input costs in all sectors, more so in the case of sectors such as cement, steel, automobiles, FMCG, retail, pharmaceuticals etc. With rising competition in the sectors that use logistics services, it has become even more important to enhance the efficiency of the system and use the cost-benefit in increasing the company’s competitiveness. Besides, with increasing globalisation a larger number of multi-national companies (MNCs) are sourcing, manufacturing and distributing goods on a global scale, and thus need more complex supply chains to be managed. Given such developments in Transportation, Warehousing and Courier / Express sub-sectors are expected to become a more specialised and niche expertise area where high premium will be charged for increased quality and quantity of service delivered by logistic service provider. The annual logistics cost in India is valued at Rs. 6,750 billion (US$ 135 billion) and it is growing at 8-10% annually. Logistics cost by value accounts for around 13% of the GDP of India – this is much higher than that in the US (9%), Europe (10%) and Japan (11%) but lower than that in countries such as China (18%) and Thailand (16%). In particular, the percentage-wise share of transport cost (an important constituent of total logistic cost incurred by a nation) by value of GDP has been steadily increasing. The high cost of logistics in India when compared to developed nations may be attributed to poor quality of infrastructure and inadequate service quality vis-a-vis counterparts such as US and Europe. Transportation, Warehousing and Courier / Express sub-sector in India is dominated by the unorganised segment (small truck owning companies linked to intermediate brokers or transport companies, small warehouse operators, shop cum courier pick-up points, custom brokers, freight forwarders, etc.); the organised segment accounts for less than 10% of the total logistics market in India. The type of logistics services provided in India are yet evolving; the focus in India has been on enabling ‘physical distribution’ as compared to developed nations where the focus has progressively shifted to ‘Integrated Logistics Management’.
Logistics Sector Skill Council (LSC), a society registered under the Societies Registration act, 1860, is a not-for-profit organization set up by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) along with National Skill Development Corporation of India (NSDC) with the aim to up-skill the logistics workforce in India. The mission of the Logistics Skill Council is “to bring the best in class workforce skills to the Indian logistics industry, thereby benefitting the employer, employees and the nation as a whole”.

Objective

  • Create an assessment framework to award tamper proof certifications to trainees
  • Rationalize and maintain a detailed Skill inventory
  • Undertake Skill mapping and Skill gap analysis i.e. identification of skill development needs based on LMIS and emerging technologies. The study will be done state-wise, region-wise and sub-sector-wise.
  • LSC aims over a period of 10 years, to develop a detailed occupational mapping which covers all the sub-sectors such as Warehousing Storage, Warehouse Packaging, Land Transportation, Air Transportation, Shipping Transportation and Courier / Express to map all job roles (100), affiliate 1400 training partners across PAN India, 2700 Master Trainers and certify approximately around 4 million skilled talent pool in the sector.
  • Set up a comprehensive Labor Market Information System (LMIS) i.e. preparing a compendium of skill types pertaining to job roles within its sub-sector and to assist in planning for skilling, up-skilling and re-skilling through delivery of planned, formal and structural trainings.
  • Steer the affiliation and accreditation processes to enable Quality Assurance in training at par with International standards
