  • Logistics- business has gained tremendous popularity now a days since there are plenty of youths interested to join in this line.

But keeping in mind of the promotional prospects and the perks attached to this industry, they find their involvement with this industry quite interesting and stimulating.
    In the earlier days, to hire a taxi or cab was a time - consuming process in the sense the customers had to rush one spot or the other for better bargaining in respect to rates. But with the emergence of Ola, Uber one can book the convenient transport within a couple of minutes with the mobile. Payment - option is also suiting the customers where they can make payments without any cumbersome process. Since, the nature of the job is very competitive in this sector, rates too become quite affordable. In absence of suitable employment in other sectors, youths from different income - groups would like to join the logistics services.
    Amazon, Flipcart, Food - panda are the other components which have shown spiralling growth now a days because of immense demand of the products for such commodities and here a chain of people exists offering their expertise in a very competitive price.
