Yes, there is a national motor carrier in India


The following statement, which appeared in the article "Now's the time for an India strategy" (Quarter 1, 2009), is false: "Hiring a motor carrier means working with a small trucking company, as the country has no large, national transportation companies and only a handful of medium-sized carriers."

My company, Transport Corporation of India (TCI), is the largest national transportation/multimodal logistics company in India. We have 1,200 company-owned offices and provide services in every district of India. A district is an administrative division of a state. India is divided into 28 states and seven Union Territories (UTs). Each state or UT is subdivided into districts for administrative purposes. As of 2008, India has 611 districts.
