The Logistics Sector

Is a market sector that encompasses the components and interactions that determine the mobility of people, goods, and materials. It includes companies involved in pure transportation services using various modes of transport such as automobiles, trucks, trains, ships, etc. It also includes companies that offer logistics services such as warehousing, transportation planning, and management operations. In the current market, various logistics activities can be distinguished based on the specific process they refer to, such as inbound logistics, internal logistics, distribution logistics, reverse logistics, outbound logistics, etc. It is also a sector that is generally cyclical.

Of particular importance is the planning activity for managing and implementing storage and transportation procedures to make them as efficient and effective as possible. As the logistics sector is interdependent, both vertically and horizontally, with other sectors, and as logistics is an internal activity within any market enterprise, there are multiple investment opportunities. For this reason, WeInvest has decided to dedicate a specific Sectorial Thematic Club Deal to the logistics sector.

Sector Charateristics

Business Model

The sector is characterised by a significant diversity in terms of business models that structurally define the companies operating within it. We can distinguish among the main business models:

  • Freight Carriers and Express Couriers: these are operators responsible for the transportation of goods or people on behalf of third parties;
  • International Freight Forwarders: these are service companies that handle the organisation of shipments in their entirety, involving additional actors, such as intermediaries (mostly downstream) in the logistics chain;
  • Import/Export Companies: these companies engage in the import and export of goods, services, and commercial merchandise, typically on an international level;
  • E-commerce Companies: these are virtual spaces for the buying and selling of goods and services facilitated through the use of telecommunications and information technology.

Market Risks

The contextual macro factors of a PEST nature (political, economic, social and technological) which can impact on the Logistics sector and which can also negatively influence investments in this market sector, are:

  • Political Factors, such as the Russo-Ukrainian conflict, which has significantly disrupted freight transportation, affecting both timing and the availability of raw materials. Another political element that has a significant impact on the industry's performance and results is the regulatory framework at the national, European Union, and international levels;
  • Socio-Cultural Factors, including the Covid-19 pandemic, which has caused a severe disruption in the sector during the 2020-2021 period, due to the restrictions imposed by various governments.

Market Trends

The main market trends in the Logistics Sector include:

  • Development of Green solutions, such as packaging pooling, aimed at reducing environmental impact;
  • Logistics 4.0, driven by the impact of Digital Transformation in the sector, focuses on designing business models for customised transport systems for each client, including load planning, trip scheduling, warehouse flows, and workforce management;
  • Automation, where technologies such as AI and robotics play a crucial role in logistics and transportation processes, leading to increased operational efficiency;
  • e-Commerce, a growing trend that replaces traditional buying and selling systems with virtual spaces accessible to users from any device.
