Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 9.1 Trillion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.8% during 2023-2028. The increasing popularity of online grocery shopping portals, the rising working population leading increasingly hectic lifestyles, and the growing adoption of big cargo vehicles with ice boxes and proper temperature conditioning for meat and dairy transportation represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Groceries transportation is the process of transporting groceries, including various F&B commodities, raw materials, and other household supplies, from one place to another. The main grocery companies transport items by trucks, vans, railroads, and ships, and occasionally opt for outsourcing transport when it is cost-effective. By using grocery transportation, manufacturers and retailers can ensure that their products arrive at the destination point on time, thereby preventing food from getting wasted or spoiled. The process also ensures that a continuous supply of durable and non-durable goods is available from various suppliers and distributors across various locations while keeping the supply of seasonal products constant throughout the entire year. The incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) processes to handle the manual work is resulting in an improved groceries transportation system, which keeps deliveries fast and profitable.
Groceries Transportation Market Trends:
The increasing popularity of online grocery shopping resulting in the growing cargo volumes is a significant factor driving the market. This can be attributed to the rising working population leading increasingly hectic lifestyles. In line with this, the shifting consumer preference toward same-day delivery instead of tedious commuting across the market is providing an impetus to the market. Moreover, the augmenting need for the supply of seasonal grocery products throughout the whole year is also creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market. Besides this, the growing adoption of big cargo vehicles with ice boxes and proper temperature conditioning for perishable product transportation is impacting the market positively. Also, continual innovations in the transportation system, including computerized vehicle routing, online freight exchange, and ICT, are fueling the market. The market is further propelled by the integration of numerous technologies, such as active traffic management, GPS monitoring, and satellite trailing, to track and facilitate efficient transportation from the starting point to the final destination. Apart from this, favorable initiatives undertaken by government bodies of several countries toward the improvement of infrastructure facilities are creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include rapid urbanization, considerable growth in the food and beverages industry, inflating disposable income levels and increasing global population growth.
