Freight Forwarding – market up 2.7%

Tags: , ,


A new Global Freight Forwarding Report has been published; the freight market grew 2.7% in real terms in 2016 – but revenues for freight forwarders fell in line with sea freight rates.

As global trade picks up, global freight forwarding is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.1% between 2016 and 2020, the report suggests.

It also says that there is little difference in gross profit margins among freight forwarders.
Finally the report addresses whether ‘legacy’ forwarders should be frightened of the new breed? Not really. The report suggests “the reality is that most of these emerging companies are set up to enhance or support today’s successful forwarders”.
