Global Mega Trends And Their Implications On Urban Logistics

NEW YORK, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Global Mega Trends and their Implications on Urban Logistics

Global Spending on Urban Logistics to Reach $5.980 Trillion by 2020This study seeks to analyse the impact of global mega trends—including urbanisation, bricks and clicks, connectivity, and multimodality—on the growing market of urban logistics. Urban logistics is a dynamic and crucial subset of the logistics industry, which over the past decade has placed unique demands on the global supply chain. Mega Trends such as urbanisation have serious implications not only for logistics service providers who are increasingly finding it difficult to tackle congestion but also for city governments entrusted with the incumbent task of sustainable development. This study also explores the strategies implemented by companies and governments alike to improve the overall efficiency of the urban supply chain. Definition of Mega Trends What is a Mega Trend? Mega Trends are transformative, global forces that define the future world with their far reaching impacts on businesses, societies, economies, cultures, and personal lives. Why do Mega Trends matter?• Mega Trends have diverse meanings and impacts for different industries, companies, and individuals. An analysis of these Mega Trends and their implications forms an important component of a company's future strategy, development, and innovation process, and impacts product and technology planning.• The following research service sets the stage for visionary thinking by identifying the most important global Mega Trends that will significantly impact urban logistics and the implications of these Mega Trends for transforming society, markets, and cultures. Key Findings Urban Logistics: Key Takeaways, Global, 20111. By 2025, 3 out of 5 people will live in cities; each city dweller will generate approximately Xdelivery per day. As a result, over X million deliveries per day will occur within cities.2. Mega Trends such as urbanization, connectivity, and convergence; bricks and clicks; high-speed rail; and multimodality are expected to drive the emergence of a new range of services called "urban logistics" that are exclusively tailor-made for urban areas.3. Growth in online retail will drive growth in freight traffic in cities—online retail will grow atX% annually to reach $XTrillion by 2025.4. Driven primarily by urbanization, urban logistics spending will increase threefold to reach $X Trillion by 2020, accounting for X% of total logistics spending with transportation and distribution activities receiving a majority of the spending at $XTrillion in 2020.5. Share of outsourced urban logistics will increase to account for X% of the total urban logistics spending by 2020. Some of the top industries that will use urban logistics services include retail, pharmaceutical, and food and beverages.6. Logistics services providers will innovate their products and services to overcome the future urban challenge introducing hybrid fleets, consolidated deliveries, and locker boxes, among other innovations for cities.7. City planners will reinforce and introduce new policy measures to control vehicle access, provide economic incentive for sustainable freight deliveries, and invest in infrastructure, such as freight villages, to ensure sustainable urban logistics. Features of Urban Freight Urban Logistics: Features of Urban Freight, Global, 2000–20061. A typical city has a minimum of at least 150 supply chains, one for each economic sector (2000).2. Urban logistics can be both in-house and outsourced. In a typical developed European city, the ratio could be 50:50; in contrast, in a developing city in-house management could be as high as X% due to an unorganized supply chain made up of small time vendors and 'white van' providers (2006).3. A city generates about X to X tons of goods per person per year (2006).4. Majority of the freight is incoming freight, which accounts for X% to X% of the total truck-km in urban areas, while outgoing freight accounts for about X% to X%. The rest originates from and is delivered within the city (2006).5. Road transport is the most prominent mode of urban goods delivery; X% of road urban transport fleet is made up of light commercial vehicles (2006). Definition of Segments Global Logistics SpendingIncludes spending on:• Transport and Distribution• Warehousing• Value-added services Urban Logistics SpendingUrban share in global logistics spending includes:• Goods to urban areas• Goods from urban areas• Goods originating in and delivered within cities In-house and Outsourced Urban LogisticsSpending on third party logistics services from service providers who may include 2PL (second party logistics / carriers), 3PL (third party logistics), and 4PL (fourth party logistics) companies
