Global Freight Trucking Market To Reach $ 2.7 trillion by 2026
Global freight transport is a key part of trade in goods and materials and comprises a complex system of transportation networks, businesses and government agencies that facilitate the movement of goods from one place to another. Today, the global freight industry moves trillions of dollars worth of goods around the world every year. Trucks are ubiquitous in the freight ecosystem given that virtually any package or container, regardless of their place of origin, will make one trip in a freight truck before it reaches its destination. Ground freight, especially freight trucking, has a host of advantages such as cost efficiency that comes with low packaging requirements and low fuel costs; versatility and flexibility as the trucks come in various sizes capable of handling short or long journeys, local or cross-border and even rural transport; preparation, as only single customs document processes are required for most road transport, which makes cross-border freight transport relatively smooth; predictability in terms of scheduled delivery, easy tracking and traceability of freight; convenience of point-to-point and door-to-door service; universal access given the vast road networks developed over the course of the century in virtually all regions of the globe.
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global freight trucking market is estimated to be US $ 2.1 trillion in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of US $ 2.7 trillion by 2026, with a CAGR of 4.7% over the analysis period.
