Global Freight Forwarding Market 2015-2018 Forecast
DUBLIN, July 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/l7hppf/global_freight) has announced the addition of the “Global Freight Forwarding 2015” report to their offering.
As forwarders deal with rising challenges within the freight market, disruptive threats from start-up competitors have the potential to make the freight forwarder, as we know it, obsolete.
The future of the traditional freight forwarder role is in jeopardy thanks to changing demand, enhanced technology and a new breed of competitor. To survive, forwarders will need to upgrade their own IT capabilities and adapt to changing shipper requirements or run the risk of becoming obsolete.
What are the Key Findings?
– Despite an increase in market size, the freight forwarding market is still smaller than it was in 2012.
– Emerging markets will lead growth for freight forwarding through to 2018- notably thanks to the fruition of infrastructure projects, particularly in Africa and the Middle East
– How traditional freight forwarders respond to the growth of e-commerce market place competitors will shape the industry going forward
– Is the global supply chain giving way to a regional one?
– The impact of congestion at ports has rippled through the supply chain as shippers look to find available transportation- air, truck, rail or combination- to get products to the end user.
