Shippers prefer intermodals transportation as it sends multiple less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments to the same destination. Moreover, this mode of transportation is growing rapidly, as it is flexible in terms of connectivity. Furthermore, it is supported by various growth drivers, such as accelerated adoption of containerization, growth in domestic intermodal transportation, globalization, and an increase in international transportation. With the increasing growth of intermodal transportation, companies are investing in the development of intermodal containers and trailers for better efficiency in terms of carrying goods.

Market growth in this segment will be slower than the growth of the market in the tank wagons segment. This report provides an accurate prediction of the contribution of all the segments to the growth of the rail logistics market size.

How will Rising Trade Influence Rail Logistics Market Growth?

The train logistics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of almost 4% during the forecast period. The increasing demand for rail logistics due to the rising trade is one of the significant factors that will influence market growth. The increase in trade has induced businesses to choose railways as the preferred mode of transportation for their goods because of its higher fuel efficiency, ability to carry high capacity of goods, low railway transport charges compared to road transportation costs and its services being independent of weather conditions. The high usage of railway transportation as the mode of goods transfer benefits businesses as well as the country’s economy.

The increasing Internet and mobile penetration, the growing acceptability of online payments, and favorable demographics are key rail logistics market trends that will gain influence the demand for rail logistics. The door-to-door facility provided by companies offer services in road logistics and ensure last-mile delivery. Additionally, customers demand to express shipping of goods and commodities. To cater to these demands, better infrastructures, facilities, and more employee strength are required, which involves a significant investment. Key vendors are focusing on improving the rail network and latest technology-based service offerings, such as integrated ticketing, IoT-enabled services for efficient use of rail logistics, real-time tracking, and better environmental-friendly ways of transport.
