South Africa Logistics Market Overview and Size

South Africa Logistics Market Segmentation

By Freight Forwarding

The FMCG, Retail and Automotive industries in the country played a significant role, especially for the domestic market, in the growth of freight forwarding market in South Africa. Road freight was observed to be the most preferred mode of transportation due to the development in the road infrastructure and relatively cheaper prices as compared to the other modes of transportation; followed by rail and sea freight. Asia flow corridor was observed as the largest contributor in terms of revenue in South Africa freight forwarding market.

By Warehousing

The South Africa Warehousing market has grown at a slow pace due to the stalling economy. Warehousing is one of the key developmental areas for logistics, requiring increased investment and advancement in technology. The advent of automation technology along with more advanced inventory management systems has helped in the growth of the warehousing segment.

South Africa Logistics Market

By Cold Chain

South Africa Cold Chain market has expanded majorly due to rise in the demand for perishables. Better access to secure payment gateway along with the gradual improvement in the delivery system have further led to the expansion of the cold chain segment. The demand for poultry and fishery based products has contributed the growth. Majority of the revenue in the cold chain is yielded from the cold transportation rather than cold storage.

By Express Logistics Market

The Express Logistics market grew at positive revenue CAGR during 2013-2018. Online customers are now demanding more convenient methods of delivering their parcels as well as more efficient methods of returns. Majority of the customers prefer normal delivery to express delivery as express service is seen as a premium service. In spite of the challenge, the market has attracted many international players such as DHL, DSV, FedEx- TNT among others. The express delivery market will grow in the future at strong pace due to the demand for faster delivery services and advent of advanced technologies.

By E Commerce Logistics Market

E-Commerce is showing stable progress in the South African retail industry, especially in distant areas where traditional distribution channels are too expensive.  Traditional retailers have shifted to a web-presence to compete with mail-order companies and many outsource delivery to a service provider. Strong investments in online retail, logistics capability, aggressive marketing and the rapid uptake of new shopping channels like mobile shopping and Instagram have been driving the gross merchandize value online. South Africa’s E-commerce logistics market is poised for strong growth in the coming years.

By Outsourced Logistics Market

The companies have now started to focus more on their core, driving the outsourced logistics or 3PL industry. The growth in the 3PL Market has been fueled by companies looking to subcontract logistics in specialist areas where they have less expertise and the robust growth of e-commerce, which is demanding faster delivery and efficient inventory management. Strong relationship between shippers and 3PL providers, and the significance of emerging technologies, including block chain and automation have allowed the third party logistics market to flourish in the country.

Competitive Landscape

The competition within South Africa Logistics and Warehousing Market is highly fragmented in nature with the presence of national and international players such as Imperial Logistics, Bidvest Panalpina Logistics, Value Logistics, DB Schenker, Barloworld Logistics, CEVA, DHL, ID Logistics, OneLogix, Kuehne + Nagel, and many more.

Future Outlook and Projections

Development in infrastructure and use of technology will drive growth in the logistics market. Anticipated surge in domestic and cross border online mail orders will raise the demand for the freight forwarding of the goods from one place to another in both domestic and international markets. Expansion of ports will raise the imports and exports for which the need for establishing warehouses will rise. With further growth in the E-Commerce market and changes in consumer preferences, the demand for a quicker and affordable delivery service will witness growth. Growth in the international trade, especially with the growing Asian countries such as China, India and Japan will lead to growth in the market.
