Third-Party Logistics Market Insights

Logistics Industry Witnessing Progressive Growth in Saudi Arabia

Logistics is the core area of the third party logistics (3PL) firms and their proficiency in this areas is always superior to that of the core companies. Since the past few years, Saudi Arabia has made progress for improving its logistics services, and the relevant infrastructure & traceability in order to meet the world-class standards. The processes for import and export processes are more reorganized and governance regulations and structures are being reformed. KSA is also pursuing the public-private partnerships for both, to finance the infrastructure and for acquiring the capabilities from the other leading logistics markets. Furthermore, the country is moving forward towards modernizing airports and expanding air cargo facilities for eliminating the infrastructure bottlenecks. Additionally, for the waterways, the focus on growing port specialization, reforming the governance, and updating the concession frameworks is expected to proliferate the third-party logistics market growth.

 

Lesser Control of Manufacturers on Logistics Service and Delivery Processes

One of the disadvantage of opting for 3PL is that it leads the beneficiary companies to loss control over their shipping functions. The client businesses have no direct control over their operation when they use 3PL services. In such cases, businesses are highly dependent upon third party to consistently come through delivering the promised services. Client companies may have to bear certain losses and damage to their business if the 3PL services fail to deliver certain products to the customers on time. Moreover, third-party logistics market firms promote their services in most cost efficient way and the client company has to comply with pricing model specified in the business agreement. However, in certain cases, companies can figure out the cheaper and more efficient solution in their in-house logistics department. The aforementioned factors may hinder the growth of the third-party logistics market.

 

Mode of Transport Insights

Transportation is one of the most important service comprised in the 3PL operations and involves physically moving assets and goods in relatively safe manner on right time, in right condition, and in a cost effective manner. The role of transport is ensuring the movement of goods from the point of manufacturer or storage to the point of use or the distribution points to end use. On the basis of mode of transport, the Saudi Arabia third-party logistics market is segmented into roadways, railways, waterways, and airways. The most prominent mode of transport in third-party logistics market accounted for the roadways segment, which is further expected to dominate in the forecast period.

 

Services Insights

The third-party logistics market is categorized on the basis of various services such as international transportation, warehousing, domestic transportation, inventory management, and others. Domestic transportation service dominated the service segment and is expected to continue its dominance year on year till 2027. Domestic 3PL provides their clients with the similar quality of services that internationally located 3PL companies’ offers to their clients. The technological advancement in 3PL system allow to deliver superior services to the clients irrespective of international or domestic.

 

End-User Insights

The end use segment of third-party logistics market is bifurcated into automotive, healthcare, retail, consumer goods, chemicals & petrochemicals, and others. The third-party logistics market by end-use was led by chemicals & petrochemicals segment which held maximum market share and is anticipated to dominate the market in the forecast period. The need for diversification of the economy of Saudi Arabia from crude oil business to a more sophistical chemicals and petrochemicals industry is a step to secure the economy of the country. Initiatives taken to ensure growth in the petrochemicals sector drive the logistics business for the sector.
