The main drivers behind the continued growth surge are undoubtedly the sharp rise in e-commerce and the further increase in the international division of labor. These two factors will underpin the need for transport services and warehousing in the future too.
Other important trends in the market:
Clients expect even faster deliveries. This requires more efficient processes and new solutions for the last mile. Machines and self-driving vehicles are possible solutions.
More flexible logistics
The range of distribution channels continues to grow. This requires more flexible logistics.
The topic of sustainability is presenting the sector with major challenges, as improved transportation and lower emissions are demanded simultaneously.
Digitalization opens up new possibilities for logistics companies to make transportation more efficient, safer, and more sustainable. Not least because artificial intelligence facilitates more precise forecasts of demand as well as offers that are specifically tailored to clients. Returned goods can also be avoided in this way.
Use of machines
Machines are increasingly being used for the intralogistics in warehouses. This requires investments in warehousing.
