Message from SAP.

India is witnessing a change in the logistics landscape. The first phase was the introduction of GST by the government, which resulted in the centralization of taxes. National Logistics Policy (NLP) is the second part of the logistics transformation plan that the Government is planning to execute.

The introduction of NLP will bring a shift in the business landscape, taking into account the evolving technology and digital trends in the logistics sector.
