The global logistics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. This can be attributed to international trade and changing scenario of the worldwide market. The surge of the ecommerce industry is expected to bode well for the market. The lockdown restrictions imposed on consumers has led to a surge in online shopping and facilitated growth for the logistics market. Favorable government policies and end-to-end supply solutions for essentials can drive the market demand exponentially.
