Transport Corporation of India reported a revenue growth of 7.8% and said the company is expecting to deliver double-digit profit and revenue growth this year in the wake of the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax.
The GST, which simplifies the sales tax regime in India, is expected to give a major boost to interstate commerce, including online retail.
Logistics firms like TCI will be major beneficiaries of any big growth in the ecommerce sector.

EBITDA rose by 11.7% to Rs 40.16 crore from Rs 35.94 crore whereas revenue grew to 429.74 crore from Rs 398.83 crore.
