What the competition is about ODA’s goal is to increase the availability of the logistics industry in India by developing an infrastructure and technology platform for the transport of goods between the international and domestic shipping sectors, as well as to create a competitive environment for international logistics firms to compete.
ODI has already established itself as a leader in ODA logistics and logistics services, including the delivery, transport, and logistics of containers, warehousing, food, water, electricity, fuel, fuel cell power generation, transport of materials, and services.
