◆英語タイトル：Latin America Fourth Party Logistics (4PL) Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)
Latin America fourth party (4PL) logistics market is expected to reflect a CAGR of more than 8% during the forecast period. The growth of the e-commerce, retail and manufacturing sector coupled with the digitalization of infrastructures in the region is driving the adoption of 4PL-based services. Brazil is the fastest growing market in the region followed by Mexico, Chile and Colombia.
Despite the adverse effect of COVID-19 on the economy, the demand for 4PL services in the region has not reduced significantly. Rather the manufacturers have become aware of the need for a smooth functioning, fully monitored supply chain management.
New players in the market are also focusing on innovative services even in niche sectors, like hazardous goods logistics, temperature-controlled warehousing, and contract logistics, among others. The manufacturing industry in countries like Mexico and Brazil, is anticipated to prosper in the coming years presenting an opportunity for the fourth-party logistics market players.
Key Market Trends
Rising technology integration in the manufacturing sector
The manufacturing industry has witnessed a rapid growth in recent times, owing to huge foreign direct investments (FDI) coming up from various countries, especially the developing economies. This growth in the manufacturing industry is expected to embrace technological advancements to enhance plant productivity, maintain an edge with the customers, and gain competitive advantage. The automotive industry has one of the most multifaceted supply chains within manufacturing, involving hundreds of suppliers spread across multiple countries and continents. As such, a service-driven, robust and efficient transport management process is required. The need for an efficient supply chain system for the manufacturing sector seemed to be imminent, as fourth-party logistics providers focus on all aspects of supply chain management and provide advanced and assured management of goods from the production line until the consumer and vice versa.
As reported in June 2020, Ford is digitalising key aspects of its global logistics and supply chain management, including the recent insourcing of its fourth party logistics (4PL) logistics management in Asia Pacific, Africa and South America. The company expects to run the supply chain and logistics untouched by human hands aiming for an autonomous supply chain in the future.
Growth in the automotive sector driving the market
Increasing demand for an easy supply chain procedure from global manufacturers and distributors along with the rising demand for inbound logistic services from the automotive industry is driving the market.
Although, sales in the Latin America automotive sector plummeted almost 30% due to the COVID pandemic, as reported in January 2021; the market is expected to recover by the end of 2021. Among the challenges identified in the automotive industry, it is found that within the supply chain, it is required to have reliable information as well as to be in better communication with customers to solve any eventuality, so although it is necessary to have well-established networks also require being dynamic. Companies like Seglo / Schnellecke Logistics are developing a business model, specifically addressed to the needs that are increasingly gaining strength in the supply chain of the automotive industry in Mexico.
