India Yet to Unveil its Full Potential in the Fourth Party Logistics Market

Thu, 16 April 2020 12

The global fourth party logistics market is expected to reach a market value of USD 78,446 by 2027, with a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period, 2020–2027. The global shift toward dynamic logistics, especially in consumer goods, food and beverage, and medical equipment, presents a large-scale opportunity for the 4PL market.

The installation of 4PL SCM networks to manage air and ocean channels in Southeast Asia and South America offers lucrative opportunities for revenue generation, as a majority of their trade and transportation is carried out via land. Sophisticated demand-driven strategies, real-time order processing, and inventory optimization can open new opportunities in the upcoming years. The proper integration of technology can co-ordinate services on various levels, thereby reducing additional charges for low-income countries.

Most transportation is managed after the order is created and processed. In today’s tech-savvy world led by digitalization, hundreds and thousands of domestic and international orders are placed every minute. Therefore, with enhanced vision and forecasting, 4PL can pre-determine consumer behavior across a particular region and build intelligent shipments based on the expected demand.

The increasing struggle with the global logistics and supply chain has forced companies to contact local 3PLs that have little or no relationship with other providers. These companies can opt for technologically advanced 4PL, which offers global visibility and facilitates planning and execution for the global customer, OEM, contract manufacturers, suppliers, and carriers.

4PL can leverage today’s multi-enterprise cloud networks to aggregate multi-party shipments from one continent to another, known as the global fulfillment lane. No single company, even with enough volume and frequency, could match the reduced cost and supply variability offered by well-integrated fourth party logistic (4PL) services.

Market Highlights

By Type

The solution integrator model segment by type is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.3% during the forecast period, 2020–2027. Companies and organizations around the globe are partnering with 4PL providers to access back-end system integration, increased market transparency for goods and services, standardization and automation of order placement, and reduced procurement costs and order cycle times. For example, in October 2018, Opel and Vauxhall brands renewed their 4PL partnership with GEFCO for the integration of supply chain networks for a four-year period.

By End User

The automotive sector is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 4.75% during the forecast period, 2020–2027.
