India is witnessing exciting new investments in cold chain logistics. Tune in to Fresh Produce India on 22 April to hear expert speakers discuss some landmark developments and innovative solutions to improve the country’s fresh fruit and vegetable distribution.

Dhruv Kotak, managing director of premier Indian shipping services company, JM Baxi Group, provides his expert perspective on India’s changing logistics landscape. He explains how privatisation of state-owned logistics companies and digitalisation will reshape the sector.

Joining Kotak is Tarun Arora, director of leading Indian importer IG International. The pair discuss a tie-up between JM Baxi and IG to construct a world-class coldchain handling facility in Mumbai and their partnership to use JM Baxi’s container freight station in Nhava Sheva to cut lead-times and speed up deliveries across India.

Rail also has a key role to play in improving fresh produce logistics in India. Hind Terminals’ head of rail sales Deepak Kanuga talks about its inland container depot at Palwal, a cargo gateway to India’s National Capital Region encompassing New Delhi and surrounding urban areas.
