In this post we like to share an even wonderful as informative infographic made by Snap Parcel. It shows the future of European Logistics based on statistics, like total transported goods and number of people that are employed in the European sector. It also states the Top 5 European Logistics Countries ranked at quality of transport, timeliness of shipments, with an additional part with facts about European manufacturing.
Furthermore, it treats the recent German expansion and it contains very interesting facts regarding the logistics outsourcing trend. Following trends in IT and HR, major companies in Europe are currently looking to outsource (specific parts of) logistics to cut costs.
“Manufacturing companies in Europe are expanding their production capacities and operations. The expansion activities of these companies increase their logistics needs in terms of transporting raw materials to factories and finished goods to retailers and distributors,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of TechNavio Research (an independent tech-focused global research firm). Given the benefits of outsourcing in terms of increased operational efficiency and cost savings, shippers are increasingly outsourcing logistics."
Key Takeaways from the infographic:
- More companies are outsourcing logistics activities
- Increase in demand for logistics companies with knowledge and experience particular sectors
- Increased manufacturing and spending in Eastern Europe and Germany
- Major challenges ahead for road freight
- Consumer spending expected to increase between now and 2020
