Railways are estimated to have the second-largest logistics market share, by mode of transport

The Asia Pacific to have the largest logistics market size during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific is expected to have the largest market sizing as the region has taken stringent measures to contain the virus. China has started to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic faster than any other country.  Only some provinces of the entire country are in lockdown after the second wave of COVID-19.

The World Health Organization has appreciated India’s control over the spread of the pandemic. This has allowed the logistics and supply chain companies to meet consumer demands during the pandemic situation. The supply of vital products in Singapore, South Korea, and Japan has also regained normalcy. Thus, the Asia Pacific region is expected to show positive signs in the near future as the supply chain industry recovers gradually.
