Market Overview –

The Freight Transport Management Market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.8% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). One major trend that has emerged in international freight transport in these challenging times is the increase in the number of freight trains between China and Europe.

While all other modes of international freight transport have been adversely affected by the pandemic- the increase in freight carried by railways is not surprising, given its distinct features that are working to its advantage in the current situation.
- Further, Intermodal transportation is an emerging trend in the market which uses more than one mode of transportation. Due to globalization, companies are trading at the international level which requires safer, more flexible, and high capacity transportation options.
- Improved operational efficiency in the movement of freight is a critical aspect of any country’s economy. The demand for goods and services is increasing, with the increase in population and globalization. To overcome various environmental concerns and security aspects of their operations, many shipping companies are opting for freight transport management solutions.
- Technological advancements have led to innovative ways of conceptualizing the process along with the development of new efficiencies. In the rising sectors, the emergence of information networks with quick contacts and transaction times along with more reliable shipments is projected to drive the freight transport market growth.
- A challenge for the freight transport market growth is the high complexity and inefficiency of shipping and delivering goods and controlling cost. Furthermore, the risk associated with cross border transportation is projected to restrain the growth of the freight transport market.
Key Market Trends

Rail Freight to Account for a Significant Demand for Freight Management Solutions

- The rail freight transportation has had advantages over other modes in the areas of environmental performance, land use, energy consumption, and safety. Therefore, with the increased preference, the rail logistics environment has got complex and difficult to navigate, and companies need both rail cargo industry experience and information technology systems to manage them.
- This has resulted in the advent of a wide range of rail freight transportation management solutions, specifically designed for small freight trains, intermodal lines, and private factory rails that are challenged by the increasing operational complexity and a growing need to automate and/or streamline processes. The companies, such as DXC Technology and Goal Systems are inclining their product portfolio according to these needs.
- Moreover, the higher demand for rail freight transports will be the primary growth enabler for the market, specifically in the OECD countries. Owing to this, the rail freight transport management solutions are expected to witness a considerable growth over the forecast period.

North America is Expected to Hold a Major Share in Market

- The United States is estimated to make a major contribution in the region. The share is attributed to the rise in the retail sector due to many firms moving toward the online channel. With an advancement of technology in IT and cloud computing sector, the United States is continuously growing in the freight transport business.
- With globalization, owing to the growing digitalization and increasing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) by various industries, the North American freight transport management solution market picked up momentum, especially in the United States. The road freight transportation market in North America is one of the matured markets in the world.
- Almost 70% of the freight movement (in tonnage) in the United States is done by trucks and is expected to increase by 45% by 2040, requiring additional highways, railroads, ports, and pipelines and improvements to multi-modal connections that move freight efficiently, according to the US Department of Transportation.
- With an advancement of technology in the IT and cloud computing sector, the United States is continuously growing in the freight transport business.

Competitive Landscape

The freight transport management is highly fragmented due to various competitors and local players involved in it. They are also readily moving toward the information communication sector in the cloud computing segment. Intermodal freight transport operators who have increasingly adopted business practices in horizontal and vertical business integration due to the reduction of operational costs and increase profit margins have increased the rivalry in the market. Key players in the market are JDA Software, Accenture PLC, DSV A/S, Manhattan Associates, Ceva Logistics, etc.
- May 2020 - SAP SE integrated its InstaFreight’s service offerings with SAP Logistics Business Network to support fast and efficient handling of road shipments in Europe. By leveraging digital processes, shippers can reduce complexity in managing their relationships with transportation service providers, and carriers can reduce their administrative effort, both key benefits during the pandemic.

Recent Developments

- May 2020 - The number of China-Europe freight trains originating in Xi’an reached 1,000 in 2020, 78 days earlier than the same period last year. Cargo throughout totaled 1.923 million ton, an increase of 41.7% over the same period last year. The 1,000th train of 2020 embarked from Xi’an Xinzhu Station and headed west to Uzbekistan in May, a landmark journey in connecting China with its European trade partners. In response to COVID-19, Xi’an opened up a dedicated channel for the trains to help maintain normal operations and support enterprises getting back to business. Xi’an recognized the need to optimize the transportation declaration and approval procedures and also intensify the schedule by reducing the intervals between trains.
- February 2020 - The SmartCargo project was officially launched on 4 February 2020 at the ÖBB headquarters. Rail Cargo Group’s (RCG) board authorities presented the technology. Around 13,700 RCG wagons are each fitted with a SmartCargo device, which provides comprehensive information throughout the entire freight transport process. As part of initial tests, around 300 cars are currently being fitted with SmartCargo. At the same time, an IT platform will be set up, where all information relating to a specific transport can be accessed digitally in a clear and compact manner. It may also be possible to integrate third-party cars that are in the train line but are not owned by RCG.
