Logistics

Sri Lanka has become a thriving logistic hub in the South Asian region. With the strategic geographical location in close proximity to the emerging markets and the international shipping routes that link Asia to Europe, the country is perfectly positioned to develop its logistics sector. Further, Sri Lanka's proximity to the Indian sub-content positions the country as a gateway to a market of 1.3 billion people.

Against this backdrop and given its eminence as global centre of innovation and production excellence, Sri Lanka presents a unique proposition for further development into a world-class logistics hub, linking global supply chains with a new generation of consumers in the fastest growing economies in the world.
