Logistics refers to a process of coordinating and moving resources from the storage location to the desired destination. Logistics management helps in meeting the requirements of both the customers and the corporations by planning, coordinating, and handling the resources and their storage. It maintains a continuous flow of materials, electronics, perishable items, and equipment. Among these is food logistics, which requires specific attention according to the product being transferred. The food items are securely transported without any spoilage, damage or spillage. Moreover, food logistics providers are expected to ensure the safety of the goods from cross-contamination or tampering.

Global Food Logistics Market Trends:

Rising income levels and growing health-consciousness have increased the demand for fresh food and exotic fruits and vegetables that require optimum food logistics management to maintain their freshness and quality. This has led to the introduction of more efficient cold chain facilities, which represents one of the major factors stimulating the market growth. Moreover, food logistics providers are employing the latest technologies, including GPS-enabled sensors, on the inbound ocean, rail, and truck freight, which offer location status and real-time temperature to end-users. Additionally, they are also adopting artificial intelligence (AI) for intelligent route planning and reducing delivery time. Furthermore, due to the fast-paced lifestyle and growing e-commerce companies, consumers are more inclined towards online grocery shopping, which, in turn, is propelling the growth of the market. Another growth-inducing factor is the improvement in the distribution infrastructure.
