US to dominate the freight brokerage market in the Americas
Technavio researchers anticipate high growth for the freight brokerage market in the Americas to the growing demand for freight transportation in the country. The GROW AMERICA Act initiated by the Department of Transportation focuses on investments in the freight system in the US. It is a six-year bill which allocated more than USD 15 billion in 2016, for the improvement of the freight transportation system in the US.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on logistics, “The freight transportation market in Americas has increased because of a growing population and increase in economic activities. The US population has witnessed a 23% increase between 1990 -2016, while the average household income has increased by 20% during this period.”
Competitive vendor landscape
The freight brokerage market in the Americas is fragmented owing to the presence of numerous international and regional vendors. The diversified regional vendors are competing with the global vendors in terms of features and price. Factors such as the increase in product extensions, technological innovations, and M&A will further intensify the competition among the players in the transportation brokerage market. In the coming years, the large freight broker companies will focus on acquiring the regional or local players and grow inorganically.
