Abstract :

Logistics has huge impact on the domestic and global economy of any country. With rising consumer demand and the resulting growth in global trade, the role of infrastructure support in terms of rails, roads, ports & warehouses hold the key to the success of the economy.  Goods are transported predominantly by road and rail in India. Whereas road transport is controlled by private players, rail transport is handled by the central government. With the second largest network in the world, road contributes to 65 per cent of the freight transport (Rastogi, 2006). Road is preferred because of its cost effectiveness and flexibility. Rail, on the other hand, is preferred because of containerization facility and ease in transporting ship-containers and wooden crates. The present study deals with 50 samples. Statistical tools uses for the analysis of the data are Simple Percentage, Chi-Square Test and Weighted Average Mean.
