Domestic road logistics sector shows suns of recovery to grow 6-9%; ICRA

This comes in the backdrop of India posting record goods exports of $95 billion in the first quarter of the current financial year. The he sector continued a strong rebound as facilitated by recovery across industries and improving freight availability.

“With the demand recovery sustaining post the festive season as well over Q4 FY2021, the logistics sector pared back some of the losses of the first half and closed the fiscal with a revenue growth of 4% for FY2021 against 4% contraction expected earlier by ICRA,” Srikumar Krishnamurthy, vice president and co-head, ICRA Ratings reported. The logistics sector reported a strong recovery over H2 FY2021, a sharp contrast to the steep decline in revenues and earnings reported over Q1 FY2021.

“Despite returning to pre-Covid levels, freight rates continued to remain firm given the rise in fuel costs. Sustained growth in E-way bill and freight volumes remained a testimony to the firming up of the sector’s performance over Q4 FY2021,” Krishnamurthy added. Indian exports were $32.5 billion in June, with shipments during the quarter surging 85% from a year earlier and 18% from the same period in FY20.
