About This Report


Freight forwarders purchase space on freight transport services in bulk, which they then onsell in smaller quantities to clients. The industry's major value-add is the consolidation of loads from multiple clients to use transport space as efficiently as possible. Through this service, clients gain access to cheaper freight rates than they could achieve individually, while operators receive a small commission. Over the five years through 2014-15, industry revenue is expected to rise modestly by an annualised 0.7%. The industry's performance is expected to be more positive in 2014-15, with revenue forecast to grow by 1.8% to reach $2.3 billion.

Road freight forwarders are mainly engaged in organising transport services and consolidating goods for transport. Consolidating loads allows road freight forwarders to achieve and pass on rates that their customers would be unable to achieve alone. Road freight forwarders do not provide underlying transport services.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
