Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2017 -- Report forecast the third-party logistics market in Japan to grow at a CAGR of 3.53% during the period 2017-2021.

The term 3PL refers to third-party logistics that essentially involves a vendor catering to the logistics and distribution management of outsourced products and services of different companies. Shippers (customers, who transport goods using 3PL services) outsource some or all the supply chain management (SCM) functions of their logistics services to the 3PL provider. The 3PL provider is responsible for handling customer logistics requirements while performing different functions like transportation, location tracking, and sometimes product-consolidation activities.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the third-party logistics market in Japan for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the 3PL services provided by the vendors in Japan.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is affordable prices through 3PL services. Construction of logistics facilities is a capital-intensive process, and a huge amount of funding is required to build large infrastructure. Therefore, most of the companies outsource their logistics and supply chain operations to 3PL players. Over 90% of the businesses in Japan outsource operations to 3PL players, as the companies do not have enough capital to invest in huge warehouse facilities and do not find the need to spend high amounts on logistics facilities.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is lack of innovation in logistics facilities. Most of the companies in Japan have in-house logistics, which was equipped to meet the demand from customers. However, with growing online retailing, the number of goods in the warehouse is stocking up, and the availability of space is getting limited. Apart from the unavailability of space, the warehouse facilities are not technologically equipped to meet the growing demand from customers.
