◆英語タイトル：Colombia Third-Party Logistics (3PL) Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)
The Colombia Third-Party Logistics (3PL) market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 4.75% during the forecast period. Colombia is home to an exciting domestic economy, with a keen focus on international markets and foreign trade. Open, transparent, and ready to trade are three cornerstones of the Colombian economy. Colombia´s strategic geographic location offers great advantages for logistics services, which lowers costs and reduces time of deliveries.
Among the rest of South American countries, Colombia is regionally the major focal points for overall logistics activity. The high production of agricultural products along with oil, gas, and petroleum products is expected to drive the logistics activity in these countries.
Project logistics is seen to grow in the region, due to the increasing construction of oil and gas projects and government initiatives to improve the countries’ infrastructure. Regional SMEs along with companies, like Amazon and E-Bay, are propelling the e-commerce growth in the region.
Road freight transport is the dominant mode of transportation in these countries, and the logistics landscape in the region is becoming more competitive with international players expanding into the region with strategies, such as acquiring the local companies.
Logistics firms, which are involved in the movement, storage, and flow of goods, have been directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has affected e-commerce fulfillment services provided by 3PL operators worldwide as well. Like the tendency of freight trips by road, freight volumes transported by air diminished during the pandemic (i.e., March and April 2020) in comparison to the volumes observed in the same months in 2019. Overall, the amount of air cargo decreased in all cities. Bucaramanga, Barranquilla, and Pereira reported minimal movement of air cargo during March 2020, while Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, and Cartagena presented reductions between 40% and 70% compared to the same month of the previous year (2019). Cargo volumes transported by trucks during the mandatory quarantine also exhibited a decrease, mainly explained by lower transport flows of nonessential goods.
Key Market Trends
Rising investment in transport and Logistics Sector
Colombia has made considerable progress in the expansion of its air and maritime port capacity, while the country’s ambitious road-building programme appears to be back on track after a series of delays. Also, the government has sought to overhaul the industry’s legal framework to better facilitate private investment, while municipal authorities have made efforts to improve both urban and rural mobility.
Nevertheless, the progressive integration of Colombia into the international economy and the development of sophisticated global value chains has placed a strain on the country’s transport system. Insufficient levels of historical investment, combined with rising demand from both business and consumers, and the nation’s difficult geography have resulted in a significant infrastructure gap. The aim of the government is to lessen the gap and facilitate the economic growth.
The movement of goods within the country largely takes place via road, with 73.2% transported in this manner, followed by rail (25.5%) and river (1%), according to the Ministry of Transport (MoT). While investment in the sector has been on the rise, this has not been uniform across the segments
According to the National Roads Institute (Instituto Nacional de Vías, INVÍAS), USD 2.3 billion was invested in the country’s road infrastructure between 2010 and 2018. However, it is estimated that further USD 13.7 million, will need to be invested in the segment by 2025.
E-commerce driving the market
E-Commerce in Colombia has recently experienced an atypical growth in comparison to a common trend observed in Latin America in recent years. Colombia can be seen as a late starter in terms of transactional and connectivity growth. However, its market has been evolving rapidly due to government policy, banking penetration, and individual efforts to create trust in the eCommerce sector. With a promising market, Colombia may be set to outpace the development of pioneering Latin American countries such as Brazil.
Colombia is currently the fifth largest e-commerce market in Latin America, and the only country in Latin America with a Ministry of E-Commerce, making it clear that the market is a priority for the government. Colombia is also the 31st largest market for eCommerce with a revenue of USD 4 billion in 2019, placing it ahead of Chile and behind the United Arab Emirates.
In 2019, multimedia products, household items, and fashion pieces generated the largest revenue in online sales. Recently, however, the demand for food and beverages has been growing faster with the onset of online food delivery. An example of such a trend is Colombian on-demand delivery company Rappi, who has become a key player in the transformation of these e-services. The company has managed to overcome some of the main logistical and efficiency challenges that had previously hindered the development of this segment in the country.
In view of the growing importance of e-commerce and the companies leading its evolution, local stores such as those of the Grupo Éxito, the leading retail chain in Colombia, have been allocating greater resources into their digital channels.
The market studied is competitive and is fairly fragmented with a large number of local and few international players, such as Kuehne Nagel, Servientrega S A, OPL Carga SAS, and Deutsche Post DHL as some of its major players among others.
The trend toward outsourcing of logistics services is significant and will continue to increase, although it is imperative to recognize that the percentage of logistics outsourcing in Colombia continues to be low compared to the proportions handled in Europe and North America. In this sense, the leaders in this business are working hard to seek to streamline the process.
