The global third-party logistics (3PL) market was valued at $1,027.71 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $1,789.94 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 7.1% from 2020 to 2027. In 2019, the Asia-Pacific region garnered the highest share in the global 3PL market. 3PL is the function by which a manufacturer outsources activities related to logistics and distribution. A 3PL company can provide specialised services such as inventory management, cross-docking, door-to-door delivery, and packaging of products. The market for 3PL service is expected to witness significant growth, due to development of the e-commerce industry.

The United Kingdom is one of the major trading countries globally, which exports most of its products to many European countries. Being a developed economy, the 3PL market in the country is well-developed and is expected to show a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period 2020 - 2025. Owing to developed infrastructure, sophisticated supply chain network, and the presence of global players, the country’s freight and logistics market has gained a strong base over the years. The large retail and e-commerce sectors in the country are among the key users of the third-party logistics in the country. In highly competitive markets, such as the United Kingdom, the delivery time is a key competitive factor for retailers and online stores. So, retailers outsource their logistics to delivery specialists, and retailers, large and small, can compete on on-demand, next-day delivery.

Market Trends

  • Micro-fulfilment is drastically transforming the way logistics work across cities. This trend and the demand for last-mile delivery offer some interesting opportunities for investors and start-ups in the market.

  • The logistics sector is experiencing massive disruption where now the consumers will be able to receive their items in time as little as one hour. The rapidly delivered services are already familiar to most urban consumers. Leaders like Deliveroo, Ofo and Uber have already made extreme efficiency a day-to-day reality for food and rides. When it comes to logistics, the principle is roughly the same — but the potential is even further-reaching.

  • In March 2020, infrastructure work on the north-east logistics and Manufacturing Park on a 270-acre land at Teesside International Airport. Further, the land on the south of the airport is expected to witness the development of up to 3.4 million sq. feet of warehousing space.

  • The online supermarket Ocado announced the development of its sixth warehouse in the UK supporting its growth plans. The new warehouse will be the company’s first “mini” customer fulfilment centre with the capacity for more than 30,000 orders per week.

  • In October 2019, Huboo, a U.K. start-up that operates a multi-channel fulfilment service for e-commerce businesses of varying sizes, has raised GBP 2.1 million in seed funding to further develop their innovative fulfilment service making it one of the fastest-growing fulfilment service providers in the UK.

  • Red Stag Fulfilment is planning to invest USD 16 million in a project to expand total warehouse capacity and fulfilment service offerings. This expansion is expected to add 3,13,000 sq. feet warehousing space to its existing footprint.
