However, with the business landscape becoming increasingly complex and competitive, customers are shifting their focus toward their core businesses. Various companies are concentrating their capital and resources on improving the efficiency of their core businesses, compelling businesses to shift their focus toward contract logistics service providers. Shippers achieve substantial savings by avoiding expenses related to warehousing, vehicles, and machinery.

Further, the report states that fluctuation in transportation costs in different regions poses a challenge to contract logistics providers.
