EDITORIAL Intralogistics Trade magazine for material flow and material management India’s economy continues to grow One look at the world’s countries with the highest (expected) economic growth shows India at the top of the list, and that for good reason. Since the new government took charge in May this year, there is growing confidence in the new Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address economic issues more intensely and the first signals have been well received. As a consequence, in the future it will be easier for foreign investors to launch business activities in India. Contributing factors include customs exemptions, tax relief schemes as well as a standardized taxation system. These are all steps in the right direction, yet they represent only a fraction of the measures required to bring India on course to growth. The country is in dire need of infrastructure enhancements. Only fully developed and nationwide railway and road networks, as well as efficient links to airports and ports, will enable Intralogistics will play a key role supplies for the general public and companies to be safeguarded while simultaneously creating an important impetus for comprehensive economic growth. An operating infrastructure is also a condition for functional relationships between customers and suppliers and intralogistics – in this context, intralogistics plays a vital role. We expect warehousing to become an increasingly more important subject in India. As a result, local as well as central logistics facilities are under extreme pressure to ultimately be able to create an efficient supply chain. Visit CeMAT India from 10 to 13 December in Delhi to find out about strategies, concepts, and technologies in intralogistics. Reiner Wesselowski Imprint Editor in chief: Dipl.-Ing.
