Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the pharmaceutical logistics market in North America: Agility, DHL, DSV, FedEx, Kuehne + Nagel, and UPS.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Air Canada Cargo, Expeditors International of Washington, and PANALPINA.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing number of consolidations. The pharma logistics market is highly fragmented and several large pharmaceutical logistics companies are entering into consolidation to extend their geographical presence and proprietary knowledge. Large firms acquire new technologies and expertise, while providing the smaller vendors with adequate financial and infrastructural support.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing adoption of sea-based pharmaceutical logistics. Owing to the rising air freight rates and cold chain security in air freight, pharmaceutical companies are adopting alternative transportation routes such as land and ocean. Sea-based transportation solutions reduce costs while proving a clinically maintained environment to preserve the pharmaceutical products. As a result, companies located near these ports prefer importing goods through ocean freight.
