Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing popularity of autonomous vehicles. Autonomous vehicles are increasingly getting popular with companies, such as Google's driverless car that rode 1.6-2.2 million miles in October 2016. It is estimated that companies are expecting the commercialization of autonomous cars by 2019-2022. The popularity of the autonomous vehicles has gained ground into the logistics sector. For example, self-driving vehicles have made inroads in logistics, reaching a level of maturity for commercial use in warehouse operations. In August 2016, it was observed that the introduction of vision-guided autonomous forklifts increased Giant Eagle's warehouse productivity by more than 10%.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increased adoption of technology by 3PL.
