Sivasailam, Special Secretary, Logistics Division, Ministry of Commerce and Industry and Prof Manoj Pant, Head CTFL and Director IIFT.
The CTFL is an institution that was set up at the IIFT Campus in 2018 by the Logistics Division, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India.
CTFL is working towards the development of a sector specific Logistics Performance Index (LPI-S).
CTFL has been given a mandate to work along with nine different sectors and councils to understand and measure their logistics performance.
The meeting also deliberated CTFL's approach on how the logistics performance can be measured for these select sectors.
CTFL also regularly organises sector meets to map the value chain of the specific sector, which would aid in identifying the logistic challenges faced by the exporters in these sectors.
Through these efforts of organizing workshops and sector meets, CTFL presents a report in collaboration with the sector specific council outlining the framework for calculating LPI-S and remedies to the problems faced in these sectors, which helps in benchmarking best practices within the industry.
