Global Contract Logistics 2015


Despite promising growth figures, endemic inefficiencies within the transport industry remain. What role will new business models and disruptive technologies have in shaping the future?

Data remains key to growth

The contract logistics market has benefitted from strong economic fundamentals in most key markets. The report has found that the global contract logistics market grew 5.4% in 2014 and with more ways to gather and process data, the potential for growth through efficiencies alone is substantial.

The Digital Revolution will have a significant impact in the way contract logistics providers source and analyse their data which in turn will lead to new strategies adapted to a much more connected age.

What are the Key Findings?

  • A compound growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% is forecast for the contract logistics market from 2014 to 2018.
  • Inefficiencies throughout the industry have left it vulnerable to ‘disruption’ from new business models and technology
  • Automation will play a significant role in shaping the industry through drones, autonomous vehicles and warehouse robotics.
  • Western Europe, the US and China are all expected to have achieved better year–on-year growth rates than in 2013. These markets accounted for 65% of global contract logistics growth in 2014
  • China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Colombia and Nigeria are all estimated to have experienced superior contract logistics growth rates year-on-year.
  • The most disappointing market growth region is South America, largely due to poor economic performance of Brazil in 2014.
