ComCap Logistics Perspective 2020

We are pleased to present our views on the logistic landscape, doing so with the aim of helping increase transparency and communication between the companies themselves, as well as financial and strategic investors

This report, an update of earlier reports on the logistics sector published by ComCap, observes a paradigm shift in the sector towards technology. This is affecting everything from omnichannel purchasing to reverse logistics. The report further observes that there is an increase in demand for smart & mobile supply chain solutions as the traditional supply chain industry undergoes a technology overhaul

The report also identifies selected logistics, fulfillment, and supply chain innovators as well as notable investors in the sector. Finally, we analyze the M&A and funding activity in the sector and conclude that global PE and strategic investors are actively investing in the logistics and supply chain industry

 Key themes covered in the report include:

  • Technology has been transforming logistics services and there has been a surge in demand within the supply chain for digitalization, automation, and data collection capabilities
  • Rising cross-border e-commerce and penetration of technology continue to drive cross-border logistics growth
  • Rise of omnichannel model and adoption of IoT in the supply chain sub-sector
  • An Uber-type logistics model can promote the cost and resource efficiency for shipping and warehousing
  • Innovation continues driving progress in last-mile delivery services
  • Cloud computing and ease of integration across providers and services have resulted in the unbundling of the logistics sector
