Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Use of multi-modal logistics. Multimodal transportation is considered as a major reason for the deduction in logistics costs as it is an efficient way of delivering goods over long distances. In addition, it reduces theft. Transportation and containerization of goods are increasing at a significant pace, in turn, facilitating trade activities. Vendors prefer multi-modal logistics because it is more convenient and economical to use a combination of modes of transport nationally as well as internationally. However, in Brazil, most of the transportation is done using highways, while rail is the second-most preferred mode of transportation.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Using 3PL services to reduce costs. One of the major factors driving the growth of the 3PL market in Brazil is the reduction in logistics costs of the end-user companies by utilizing 3PL services. The companies can focus on their core competencies and improve their efficiency by outsourcing the logistics part of their operations to 3PL service providers. Brazil's logistics costs accounted for 11%-14% of the country's GDP in 2016, which is estimated to increase significantly during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Varying transportation costs in different regions. Cargo transportation in Brazil is expensive, resulting in expensive logistics systems, even though there are numerous navigable rivers in the country. Also, there is a huge construction space for infrastructural improvement as well as railway maintenance. The transportation costs for different places in Brazil vary and this is a major challenge limiting the growth of the 3PL market in Brazil. 3PL service providers are exposed to the varying costs of oil, fuel, and toll duties, as well as the government policies.
