    China government is planning to spend USD 2.17 Trillion between 2016–2020 to develop the transportation infrastructure and logistics hubs. This scenario will improve the quality and efficiency of services in the market for shippers

    China's logistics costs are higher than the developed countries and also higher than some of the developing countries in Asia which is mainly due to the country's geography, road transportation infrastructure and trucking regulations

    • Asia-Pacific region is ranked first in the logistics market with China leading the list among all countries in the region
    • Rail freight volume increase by 7.7 Percent in Q1 2018 compared to same period last year. The Q1 2018 volume stands around 983.7 million tones.

    • China's road freight volume for Q1 2018 was 10.22 billion tons, for a gain of 6.3% compared to the same period in 2017
    • Ports of Qingdao, Shanghai and Hong Kong facilitate short sea shipping with Shanghai reaching interior provinces through river ports
    • COSCO shipping line has a full fledged domestic cabotage maritime circuit between the above mentioned ports


    Supplier Landscape – Road freight

    Engagement with more than 2 to 3 regional 2PL companies is recommended in the regions of South-West and South-Central regions due to the higher trucking demand during the peak periods, typically in the months between September to February

    The logistics market is in positive growth with foreign investment and the demand for transportation services increased due to growth in exports. Due to the stiff competition among the service providers in the market, shippers can avail better transport services promptly

    • Trucking market is highly fragmented with more than 85 percent of the trucks being independent trucks
    • China has ~9 Million trucking companies but only 10 percent are capable of serving more than three provinces
    • China's logistics market is highly fragmented which is highlighted by top five transportation companies holding < 2 percent market share

    Road freight contributes to more than 85 percent of domestic freight movement and is the dominant mode of transportation

    Supply and Demand

    •  Logistics players are highly concentrated on the South-West and South-central China indicating high demand in those regions

    Engagement Models: 2PL vs 3PL

    Many industrial manufacturing companies are likely to engage with 3PL's because of the capability to organize different trucking contractors, service coverage in remote areas and have a longer payment period in comparison to 2PL's

    Global 3PL companies largely outsource transportation and make use of 2PL/Independent transporters and hence the costs are higher by minimum of 5 to 10 percent compared to regional transportation companies

    2PL Companies

    • 2PL companies make use of own trucks and benefit shippers in terms of cost
    • 2PL companies do not provide much of value added services and differentiate themselves by cheaper freight cost to gain businesses

     3PL Companies

    • 3PL companies outsource most of their transportation leading to higher freight costs when compared with 2PL companies
    • Online tracking, On time delivery, longer credit periods are the value added services provided by 3PLs in order to lure customers

    Market Trends, Multi-Modality options and Best Practices

    Government's investments in rail infrastructure development leads to increase the scope of multi-modal transportation, which will benefit the shipper as rail freight rates are ~25 to 30 percent lesser than road freight rates

    E-commerce industry has been growing at a rapid pace in China and the logistics market of China has been receiving many foreign investments targeting the e-commerce industry

    Market Trends

    • E-Commerce has been driving the logistics sector in China heavily and Amazon Logistics+ service has gained huge attraction
    • Amazon Logistics+ service mainly supports caters to needs of SMEs who ship overseas and is at it's infancy stage
    • The service, if successful, could benefit many e-commerce shippers and increase competition among incumbent freight forwarders


    • Chinese government has planned to develop the logistics industry by investing in railway infrastructure and build 150 transportation hubs
    • Multi-modal transportation is limited to container movement from harbors and government is encouraging multi-modal transportation to reduce logistics costs
    • Multi-modal transportation is neither feasible nor profitable for short distance transportation due to the high expense it incurs

    Industry Best practices

    • Multi-national companies engage with 3PL companies for movement from Plant to the regional distribution centers. Engagement with 2PL/3PL is followed by shippers due to multiple plant locations, last mile deliveries and distribution to multiple DC
