Third Party Logistics (3PL) Market Share, Growth, Trends 2014 – 2022 by Acute Market Reports


Third Party Logistics (3PL) is the function by which a manufacturer outsources activities related to logistics and distribution. Often a 3PL company can go beyond just logistics and distribution and can provide specialized services such as inventory management, cross-docking, door to door delivery and packaging of products. The Third Party Logistics (3PL) market is expected to witness growth at good pace owing to its use in today’s competitive environment. Moreover, the demand is expected to rise due to increase in the focus of manufacturer and retailers on their core business (known as core competencies) and subcontracting activities, such as logistics where they have less expertise. Thus, the increase in the competition has diverted the focus of manufacturer to promote respective specializations in production and distribution.

Increase in the globalization helped in setting up a worldwide network of manufacturing activities. To maintain it efficiently, the demand of 3PL companies is expected to rise.
