Middle East and North African Transportation and Logistics Market, Forecast to 2018

Middle East and North African Transportation and Logistics Market, Forecast to 2018

Economic diversification and transportation infrastructure development are the two key drivers of economic and logistics industry growth in the MENA region. The region has emerged as a major transshipment hub, with its strategic location advantage and improvement in air and sea port infrastructures. A growing middle class, changing consumer preferences, and rising economic prosperity are expected open up new opportunities during the forecast period. Rapid growth in eCommerce is expected to increase the demand for modern warehouses with advanced IT and digital solutions. Moreover, an increasing number of FMCGs, which are typically a significant contributor to economic growth in the region, are expected to increase the demand for modern warehouses. This is likely to transform warehousing services in the region, specifically in areas of inventory management, cargo loading, order picking, and real-time monitoring of stocks. Establishment of cargo villages and logistics parks would facilitate goods traffic to East Africa, Central Asia, and the GCC region.

Technology adoption in the transportation sector is more advanced compared to other emerging economies in the region. Paperless customs clearance, cargo and container tracking, and advanced cold chain transportation are some of the areas benefiting from the increased use of technologies. In order to have a competitive advantage, logistics companies are expected to prepare themselves for this change, offer a wide range of services, and make more in technology-related investments.

The MENA region offers long-term business opportunities in the areas of transportation, warehousing, and freight forwarding. This research service shed light on the economic and logistics trends in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Turkey, and Pakistan. The study period is from 2012 to 2018.
