However, the report indicates that the growth expected from the adoption of blockchain technology will be reduced owing to the rise of cargo thefts in the country. Most of the logistic services in Brazil are provided through roads and there have been rising cases of cargo theft. As a result of this, many third-party logistic players are taking precautionary safety measures to stay away from it. However, it is currently a challenge for the third-party logistic players. 

A growth of 5% between 2020 to 2025 for the third-party logistic players in Brazil indicates that the market share will increase by US$5.22 billion. Currently, the flourishing e-commerce sector of Brazil is driving the growth of third-party logistics. It is expected that this will be helpful in the decline that the segment faced especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The e-commerce companies are not currently working to have their own logistic service. They are dependent on third-party logistic companies to ensure that the products reach the end-users living in different regions of the country. The third-party logistic companies are the ones that are ensuring the efficiency in the supply chain of the e-commerce companies.

In 2020, the eCommerce companies of Brazil will witness a growth of 56% resulting in a sales revenue of almost US$20 million. The rising growth of the eCommerce companies will further increase the demand for third-party logistic companies too. As discussed above, this is a global trend where mutual growth is seen between the eCommerce companies and logistics companies. 

Currently, to make the most out of the opportunity, the third-party logistic players should focus on both fast-growing segments and slow-growing segments that have the potential to grow in the future. The maximum growth is expected to come from the consumer goods segment followed by the manufacturing and automotive segment.

Also, it needs to be noted that the consumer goods which are generally in demand in Brazil are both seasonal and uncertain, therefore the logistic service along with transporting the goods should also over the companies the option of storing these goods for a better service. This will ensure reduced cost and fast fulfillment of the orders.
