 The Logistics Division of Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) has created a user-interactive dashboard which allows authorized user associations to log-in and lodge issues or suggestions for the government to track and resolve in a transparent manner. 

The Logistics Division of the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade is set to launch a new initiative to help industry associations highlight service-related issues online, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry said on Wednesday.

It is expected to be launched for all authorised associations in the sector soon.

This new digital initiative aims to reduce paper correspondence burden of industry associations and trade bodies, said the official press release. 

They can highlight issues and suggestions related to logistics services to the government through the user-interactive dashboard. 

It is being seen as a novel initiative for the industry that will not only allow the division to address issues related to a single Ministry/Department but also multiple ministries/departments.

A user demonstration of the system was organised recently that witnessed the participation of all major industry associations associated with logistics services in India, said Ministry of Commerce & Industry.

In the demonstration, the prototype of the system and its benefits were discussed and was followed by a detailed demonstration on the dashboard which would bring the industry and agencies closer with a continuous two-way communication that would help in responsive governance. 

The initiative is expected to help in the identification of procedural issues that lead to lower efficiency in logistics and higher logistics costs.

Senior office bearers of all industry associations present for the demonstration welcomed the initiative as a much needed tool that would significantly reduce communication gap between trade and the agencies. 

The user interaction dashboard is part of several initiatives being developed by the Logistics Division, DPIIT to address the technology, services, and human resource related aspects of logistics efficiency in the country.
