Hello Pratik,
At my startup i am also looking at getting into the logistics software market, though not from a ‘aggregation’ model but more from the point of view of creating use case based enterprise software that can address the needs of this market.
In creating a disruptive business model for logistics, one thing i must share with you is that one needs to obviously have a detailed understanding of the logistics (or supply chain) industry.
One needs to clearly understand the business flow between the local logistics representative, the central logistics player, the freight forwarder, airline / ship/ travel contacts etc. Without knowing the flows and the de-lineation of responsibilities one might find it very difficult to enter into this space.
What i am saying is that an initial challenge you might face is that agencies such as IATA (and other international freight , cargo, transport related agencies including international and government agencies like Customs ) have pretty much standardized how the logistics business is executed throughout the country and the world.
Not to dampen your spirits but IMHO just like a countries bureaucracy you might find it very difficult to change any existing system, and come up with a business model that can drastically change the logistics business functions .
Last week I had a consultation a logistics manager and thats where i was able to learn all the above. One more point, just so you know , is that this is a 24/7 high pressure environment with constant timeline pressure for the actual folks on the ground. So if you are into creating a disruptive model, you will have to get your hands and feet dirty and understand the pain points on the ground first, before coming up with a disruptive model.
In Bangalore, where my startup is based out of , we have a number of new players who do courier services. Their USP, AFAIK is that they offer same day (or NBD) delivery, and home pick up options which is not offered when i checked with the heavy weights in Bangalore like DHL.
I also talked to another local logistics supplier last year who told me there is a huge market for same day delivery in cities, as the big players dont get into that market.
One more issue i was told about was that in the local logistics space its difficult to get reliable manpower (finding a person who you can rely on to transport goods on a daily basis with / without their own vehicle and parking facility)

All the best.
