LOS ANGELES, July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Global Third Party Logistics Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 7.5% from 2021 to 2028 and expected to reach around US$ 1,800.1 Bn by 2028.

Asia Pacific dominates; North America to register reasonable share for the third party logistics market

Asia Pacific is expected to hold a dominant share of the third-party logistics market and to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. This is due to the increased influx of the e-commerce market as a result of the widespread use of smart phones and internet services. With India on the cusp of third-party logistics, high-level government initiatives such as Digital India, Make in India, Start-up India, Skill India, and the Innovation Fund are critical to the growth of e-commerce. As a result, the high influx of technologically driven solutions is a key factor that contributes to the growth of regions, ultimately driving the global third party logistics market.


On the other hand, North America has had a reasonable share of the third-party logistics market in the past and will continue to grow rapidly in the coming years. According to Statista data, third-party logistics is expanding in the US market. Revenue has increased year on year until 2019 when total revenue reached US$231.5 Bn. Furthermore, technological advancements and high optimization of supply chain drivers involving modern transportation, information, and warehousing are key factors that contribute positively to regional growth, ultimately contributing to the global third party logistics market.

Key Takeaways:

According to a report released by the United States Department of Transportation, the majority of companies have turned to outsourcing services that are not core to their line of business operations over the last few decades. Because transportation and warehousing are the two most commonly outsourced activities, the third-party logistics market has grown significantly. Third-party logistics providers are a significant type of logistics intermediary in the freight industry. These companies generate more than US$100 Bn in revenue and pay out more than US$50 Bn to transportation carriers. Such factors have become increasingly important for the expansion of the global third-party logistics market.

COVID-19 has resulted in a 2.9% decrease in 3PL revenues worldwide.
