Key Market Trends

Trucking-as-a-service to Drive the Market Growth

The reliance on truck OEMs on loT-based gadgets has fueled the management of trucking operations such as optimal asset utilization, public transit management, fleet management, and smart inventory management, to name a few. This has also led to a considerable shift in the vehicle acquisition and service model, globally.

  • TaaS has been leading the supply chain operators to access trucks on-demand, wherein the truck will need significant telematics and support services to ensure tracking, mapping, management, and optimization of routes. This led to the emergence of multiple new formats for the stakeholders to capitalize on.

  • Trucking OEMs such as Volvo and Daimler have been keen on offering subscription-based models to haulage operations by leveraging digital services. LoadSmart has customized launch of a digital platform for contracted freight carriers to match Daimler's spot loads. This looks at a take on developing the digital freight brokerage services as a TaaS model by Daimler.

  • As of October 2019, Volkswagen AG announced transitioning from a hardware supplier to being a provider of software and services. Also, by the end of 2024, over EUR 1 billion in R&D expenditure is expected to be incurred. Digitalization and connected vehicles also would enable the TRATON Group brands' service business to launch offerings and business models for the company's vehicles.

  • Also, back in April 2019, Amazon, an e-commerce operator, has been capitalizing on newly developed digital freight brokerage websites to offer third party logistic and freight delivery at less than 30% of the market rate.

Latin America is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

Latin America is one of the leading digital logistics markets, mainly due to the growing regional e-commerce sector and rising adoption of digital services among the regional transportation and logistics industry.

  • Brazil recorded one of the highest logistics expenses in the world. Approximately 30% of the distribution cost structure represents the total logistics costs. The growing e-commerce industry is driving the demand for advanced and time-efficient logistic services. In 2017, the sales of e-commerce accounted for 5% (USD 300 billion) of the Brazilian retail market share. However, this proportion is increasing rapidly due to growing digital penetration.

  • In 2018, Amazon acquired a 50,000-square-meter warehouse for lease in Brazil, as the company is planning to expand its presence in the region. Though the country's logistics market faces many problems, with the increasing need for cost-effective methods, digital logistic solutions can be expected to witness demand from this sector.

  • In Argentina, with growing cloud adoption, the country's trucking market is providing growth avenues for digital logistic vendors, as digital services are helping regional logistics companies in gaining competitive advantage.
