Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is emergence of big data. Logistic companies and shippers are deploying big data to turn large quantities of data into competitive advantage. Some of the advantages of implementing big data are the availability of the market insights, customization of services, and new business models based on agility. However, the application of big data analytics in the European logistics market has yet to achieve its full potential as there are significant IT gaps in the industry.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing complexity of in-house logistics operations. Manufacturing companies worldwide are expanding their production capacities and operations, which increases their logistics requirements in terms of transporting raw materials to factories and finished goods to retailers and distributors. This increases the complexity of SCM for manufacturing companies, which has led an increasing number of manufacturers to outsource their SCM functions to 3PL providers partially or completely.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is limited use of IT. IT remains a key component of the 3PL services provider-shipper contract. It is one of the key criteria for a shipper when signing a contract. IT acts as the backbone of the entire SCM process. However, the lack of compatibility between IT systems of the shipper and 3PL service provider is common. This incompatibility can result in communication gaps and a time lag, which can lead to a delay in the services rendered by the 3PL services provider, reducing customer satisfaction.
