The new facility is part of the company’s strategy to increase its operational efficiency and meet its growing customer demands.

The logistics industry is booming in the North America region. The global and regional trade network such as NAFTA (North America free trade agreement) between USE, Mexico and Canada have highly increased the trade between these countries, and as a result of this, the player in the logistics and supply chain industries have increased. Apart from this, these countries are also a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) whose primary objective is to increase trade between the member countries across the world. Furthermore,  the US currently holds the largest last mile delivery market share; however, Canada is expected to emerge as the fastest growing region in the near future. Increase in an inclination of manufacturers to develop paperless work along with a rise in adoption of just-in-time trucking for e-commerce companies is boosting the market for last mile delivery in the US.

Product Innovation and partnerships are expected to be the key growth strategy to be adopted by players for the next two to three years. However, this strategy could impact competition; it is also expected to generate new market as well as product opportunities as recently combined companies will thrive to maintain position and profitability.
