The strategic move of the e-commerce giants to establish their own
logistics network to minimize their operating cost will pose as a
significant hindrance for the spend momentum of the 4PL category during
the forecast period. However, the practice of outsourcing logistics
operations by buyers to 4PL service providers to focus on their core
operations and to achieve cost savings on their logistics needs will
serve as one of the prime spend accelerators for the 4PL category. Get

Increasing complexities in supply chain management are compelling buyers
to migrate from 3PL service to 4PL logistics in the US because of the
latter’s ability to offer enhanced and comprehensive management of the
supply chain. Over 65% of buyers are engaging with logistics providers
to leverage their 4PL service lines in the US. Brexit is anticipated to
create massive supply chain complexities that will delay goods movement
due to the re-imposition of customs checkpoints in the region. This will
drive the category adoption in Europe to a significant extent.

procurement research report offers insights into the cost drivers and
spend potential in different geographies. Such insights are critical for
