Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Australia 4PL Market

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a massive rise in parcel movements, particularly e-commerce deliveries, straining the present service model of Australia Post. Similarly, the pandemic put pressure on the freight & logistics industry across the country as there was a high demand for the home delivery of food and medical supplies. In response to the unprecedented growth in e-commerce in Australia, retailers and buyers had to change how things were sold and acquired. While uncertainties associated with COVID-19 harmed much of Australia's economy, it aided in the acceleration of e-commerce adoption, creating demand for high-quality, well-located warehouse space. Furthermore, a rebound in local food processing and a rise in incentives by governments in the housing and infrastructure sector are fueling the demand for logistics services in the manufacturing and construction sectors in Australia. In 2022, the industrial & logistics sector would continue to grow with many investors looking to rebalance their portfolios to take advantage of this demand, while landlords anticipate a robust surge in rent from a growing tenant base. Hence, the COVID-19 pandemic had a minimal impact on the Australia 4PL market.
