Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing intermodal freight transportation. Intermodal freight transportation will post a CAGR of more than 10% during the forecast period. Intermodal transportation uses different modes of transportation to move goods from one place to another. Companies rely more on intermodal transportation for the shipment of automotive parts, consumer goods, and heavy vehicles.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increase in trade agreements between nations. The global economy recovery has resulted in the increase in trade volumes between countries. The trade barriers have reduced because of the relaxation of government policies, increasing imports and exports between nations. Favorable government trade policies have resulted in a high demand for freight forwarding services.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is increase in reshoring and nearshoring manufacturing. Manufacturers are reconsidering their offshoring policies. The advantages that drove offshoring, such as low labor and overhead costs, are diminishing rapidly, and companies are shifting toward reshoring and nearshoring. Reshoring is the process of bringing offshore production back to the home country.
