About 3PL

3PL is a business process through which companies outsource their logistics and distribution functions to a service provider that specializes in handling logistics such as transportation, warehousing, and freight and forwarding. A service provider that provides these services is called a 3PL provider. Often, 3PL providers go beyond logistics and provide value-added services such as inventory management, cross-docking, door-to-door delivery, and packaging of products. They also provide strategic and operational value to many shippers worldwide. 3PL uses new and innovative SCM to enhance efficiency.

    Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The 3PL market in Europe has witnessed an increase in number of M&A in recent years. Vendors in this market are opting for the M&A route to increase their global presence and expand their service portfolio as well as achieve economies of scale in various SCM processes. To establish a global presence, mergers take place between companies in different regions, which enables them to deliver services at all points along the supply chain. For instance, Deutsche Bahn acquired Veolia Transdev, a public transport company, and took over its Central and East European operations in May 2013.”

    According to the report, the EU and other European countries have taken key initiatives to develop roads and transport services in Europe, thus triggering the growth of the 3PL market in Europe. In addition, Germany and France have taken initiatives in railway infrastructure development. In 2009, the European Commission in association with the Directorate-General for Energy and Transport of Germany launched an e-freight service in Germany, which is an integrated ICT application capable of tracking goods in the EU.

    Further, the report states that the ongoing eurozone crisis has a negative impact on the leading markets in Europe; thus, emerging markets in Europe have witnessed a decline in growth rate.
