LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global perishable goods sea transportation market report. This research report also lists eight other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The perishable goods sea transportation market is mainly driven by factors such as demand for processed food across the world. Convenience and ease of use resulted in the shift and adoption of processed fruits, vegetables, meat, and seafood. In addition, the new trend of adopting healthy food habits will drive the market for perishable goods. Technology is another major factor having a positive impact on transport of perishable goods via seaways.

Competitive vendor landscape

The companies differentiate themselves in terms of product and service offerings and pricing. Another factor that distinguishes the players in the market is based on the extent of integration of latest technologies in the services they provide. The vendors are increasingly keen on adopting new sustainable methods in their operating process, to leave a less ecological impact on the environment.

“CMA CGM came up with inbuilt connected container technology. This technology enables containers to be transformed into smart objects that have real time container monitoring, with hi-tech devices using TRAXENS technology,” says Shakti Jakhar, a lead transportation and distribution research analyst from Technavio.

The companies are trying to expand their business in new regions, to increase their global presence, which will increase their market share. In some regions, the vendors have entered a merger or acquisition to expand their business, efficiently utilize the capacity, and withstand the effects of economic fluctuations.
