Lead Courier / Consignment Handling Supervisors (QP: LSC/q3028)
The courier and cargo industry forms a strong and fast-growing component of the logistics and supply chain industry. The Indian courier industry size is estimated at Rs. 14,000 crores in 2015-16 and is expected to grow at 17% per annum to Rs. 20,000 crores in the next three years. The courier market in India is currently a highly fragmented one, where the government players (India Post), global integrators (such as FedEx and DHL), and large organised players (Blue Dart, First Flight, DTDC, Gati etc.) co-exist along with several other unorganised players. The booming e-commerce sector is an important factor that influences the growth of the courier industry which may further contribute to increased employment opportunities in this space.
