This book provides a detailed analysis of the express delivery sector globally and in India, using country-wide primary surveys and in-depth interviews of express delivery companies, their clients, employees, government officials, sector experts, and other stakeholders-freight forwarders, custom clearance agents, transporters, and industry bodies.
