- The LEADS survey evaluates the perspectives of various users and stakeholders along the value chain, including shippers, providers of terminal infrastructure services, providers of logistics services, transporters, and government organisations, in order to understand the factors that support and hinder the nation’s logistics ecosystem.
- The annual survey analyses the data from stakeholders (perception data) and States/UTs (objective data) and uses a statistical model to rate the logistics ecosystem of each State/UT.
- The Minister expressed hope that PM GatiShakti would assist distant communities, particularly those in the North East, undertake integrated infrastructure planning and bridge development gaps in order to bring about inclusive and equitable development.
- The PM GatiShakti programme aims to promote multimodal connectivity and logistics efficiency across key ministries and departments through integrated and comprehensive planning.
