“On the back of the Agricultural exports and improving foreign trade ties, the logistics sector in Brazil experienced high growth in 2018.”
Analysts at Ken Research in their latest publication “Brazil Road Freight Market Outlook To 2023 – By International and Domestic Freight, Domestic Flow Corridors, International Flow Corridors, End Users, Integrated and Contract Logistics” believe that the Freight Forwarding market by Road has grown due to Automotive sector and growing Healthcare sector, E commerce market, increasing volumes of imports and exports and geographical placement of Brazil.
Transport Mixture: Brazil transport 60% of the cargo by road due to its strategic location with other neighboring countries which are accessible by road. The country has more than 37,500 kilometers abandoned and working under capacity railway tracks that are majorly concentrated in the southeastern part of the country. In spite of 60,000 kilometers of navigable rivers, only 13,000 kilometers is used to economic purposes to carry oil and iron ore. Airways are usually used for passenger transportation. These difficulties make road transportation most popular mode for cargo transportation.
Focus on Automotive Sector: The country’s automotive industry has been domestically focused due to its vast internal market, with a quality that rarely met global standards. But with recent recession in the economy, its exports have become more competitive. Brazil is now an exporter of cars to Argentina and Colombia. Around one out of three cars manufactured are exported by road. Companies such as Mercedes Benz have contract out transport companies for inbound and aftermarket services that have increased the cargo transportation by road.
Growth in E commerce and Retail stores: The country is expanding in m-commerce market due to the increasing mobile internet users and ease of payment applications such as Boleto Bancário. Such e commerce websites are Americanas, Casas Bahia, Magazine Luiza, Submarino, NetShoes, and extra that is increasing the demand of door to door logistics (last mile delivery) in Brazil. Also, the country has huge retail market consisting of 89,368 stores, expanding in both size and number that have elevated the need of Road Freight in Brazil.
Adoption of Electronic freight payments and Toll vouchers: The government has made it compulsory for the companies to make freight payments and toll vouchers electronically to the truck drivers that have reduced the additional accidental and theft risk taken with the cargo to avoid the toll vouchers on highways.
