    3PL Services Australia market report transcript

    Regional Market Outlook on 3PL Services in Australia

    The logistics market is fragmented in Australia with the top suppliers, such as Toll and Linfox, contribute to only 9–10 percent of the total market and remaining are contributed by other top prominent global/regional suppliers, such as Ceva, DHL, K&S, and Menlo Logistics.


    • Contract logistics market in Australia is expected to grow at a CAGR of 2.13 percent from 2016 to 2020, majorly due to demand from logistics, retail, and e-commerce sectors
    • Toll Logistics and Linfox logistics are the two top warehousing and contract logistics suppliers. Both the suppliers serve on a national level and have warehouses across all the major logistics locations. Other top prominent suppliers are Ceva Logistics, DHL, and K&S

    Logistics Market in Australia

    The Australian logistics market has been growing, and it represents 8.6 percent of the nation's GDP. Major end users of logistics service are manufacturing, retail, wholesale, construction, agriculture, and mining industries. The Australian logistics and warehousing market is expected to reach AUD 187 billion by 2021. It is predicted that the freight forwarding industry will continue to account for large share in the revenue, supported by growth of 3PL companies. The government investment is also a key factor for growth of the logistics industry. The government is planning to spend AUD 75 billion for improvement of road and rail infrastructure from 2018 to 2027.

    3PL Market Trends in Australia


    • E-commerce volume is simultaneously pressuring and expanding logistics businesses and conventional shippers/retail
    • The e-commerce and 3PL sectors have accounted to ~75 percent of the total industrial take up (more than 1.1 million sq.m.) in 2017, and this boom in demand is expected to continue for the coming years
    • E-commerce operators prefer to have a well-located distribution centers to service their shops and customers directly, and this is leading to a net increase in the demand for quality distribution space


    • Consolidation in 3PL sectors indicates that there is an enormous change in amount of industrial space these companies occupy as well as significant investment in automated warehouse facilities
    • Most of the 3PLs are looking for warehouse space in excess of 75,0002 sq. m. to ensure that they are able to access a pipeline of development
    • Major acquisitions are Toll Group has become a part of Japan Post, Australia Post is now the sole shareholder in Startrack, and has been rapidly inventing as logistics supplier and Brookfield's acquisition of Asciano (Australian Freight Logistics company)

    Warehouse Design

    • Increase in demand from retail and e-commerce sectors has translated the design into more sophisticated warehouse with slabs that handle greater loads, larger cubic capacity, and high bays
    • Sustainability continues to play a role, and more facilities are moving to a six-star rating as the major focus from occupiers is to operate the warehouse through out the 24 hours in a day
    • With the changes in the way, warehouses are built, there is expected to be increase in vacancy rates for secondary warehouses compared to primary grades, and in few areas of South Sydney, these secondary vacant spaces are used as residential properties

    Strategic Locations

    • Port land tend to attract the highest rents and land values
    • Sites in and around intermodals or other road/rail infrastructure represent a trade-off between access to markets and land cost. This has further transformed into the development of larger warehouses and super-sized distribution centers within greater metropolitan areas
    • Key strategic locations that are considered by occupiers in Australia are Melbourne's Derrimut, Laverton and Truganina, Sydney's Eastern Creek and Erskine Park, Brisbane's South West, the Australia TradeCoast, Direk in South Australia, and Hazelmere in Western Australia
    • Proximity to workforce is also an important consideration for the selection of strategic industrial locations
