The automotive logistics market will increase from $284.1
billion in 2018 to $472.9 billion by 2025 as a result of growing vehicle
production, which increases the demand for raw materials and
components, according to a new study.
The report highlights the fact that the automotive logistics market
is dominated by a few globally established players such as DHL, XPO,
SNCF, Kuehne + Nagel, and DSV.
High initial investment and operational expenses such as labour cost
and process automation cost can hinder the growth of the automotive
logistics market, it says. The increase in labour cost is one of the
major concerns for developed economies. This can restrict the growth of
the automotive logistics market. Shortage of skilled drivers is another
key challenge for logistics service providers. Logistics service
providers such as DHL plan to deploy autonomous trucks to counter the
problem of the driver shortage. Autonomous trucks would help increase
efficiency and reduce operating costs for logistics companies.
