In all industries and across all manufactring sectors, quick and cheap supply of raw materials directly defines the feasibility of production, pricing, and bottomlines of manufacturers. It indirectly defines growth rates of industries, supply-demand forces, and has a considerable effect on GDP.
India lacks basic infrastructure to transport goods across the country. Road, rail, water and air transport infrastructure needs drastic improvement. The speed and efficiency with which goods are transported currently leaves a huge room for improvement.

Government is urged to improve road conditions, increase rail network, cheapen air transport, and bring projects like Golden Quadrangle, which will boost the capacity and timelines of all transporters.
