Shillong, Mar 11 (UNI) The India Post has launched a new service in the North Eastern region - Logistics Post Air - to facilitate collection, transportation by air and delivery of large consignments in the region.
Official sources said here today that the difficult geographical terrain of the NE was a constraint for the free movement of goods.
''The introduction of this service has provided huge business opportunities to the entrepreneurs of the region. On an average, about 165 tonnes of logistics freight is being carried per month in this sector,'' the sources added.
In August 2007, the India Post launched its first freighter aircraft connecting Kolkata-Guwahati-Imphal-Agartala to expedite the delivery of mail and parcels in the NE states.
