POTENTIAL MARKET BOOM DRIVEN BY NEW RETAILING MARKET TRENDS, DEVELOPMENTS, SIZE AND FORECASTS
As internet-based shopping transforms retailers' business models it increases their logistics demands and obstacles and with the shopping explosion seen in Emerging Markets recently the market is currently filled with both challenges and opportunities.
Dedicated internet retailers, such as Amazon, have the advantage of a more simple business model but their logistics spending is still huge. The result is that spending on logistics in the retail sector is growing rapidly. Retailers find themselves in the unfortunate situation of throwing money at logistics solutions in an effort to keep up and driven by a fear of losing valuable market share.
The implications of this changing trend are not straightforward. Whilst logistics spending is growing, the companies that are benefitting are often specialist providers of fulfilment services or last mile capabilities rather than traditional purveyors of 'trucks and sheds'. In addition, many of the larger retailers are increasingly moving towards investing in in-house capabilities rather than outsourcing.
With the previous modest growth in the contract logistics market of expected to be exceeded in the coming years, the trends toward e- retailing and emerging markets are ones which all third party logistics providers will need to acknowledge if they don't want to be left behind in what is proving to be a rapidly changing market.
