    Opportunity Usage of Logistics Providers

    Outsourcing of logistics services, including warehousing is still very immature in China- Local companies do not see the value in buying 3PL services- The share of 3PLs is only about 20% of the total logistics expenditure in China.- In the U.S. 3PLs have a 57% share and 80% in Japan.

    How often are 3PLs used to handle logistics?

    Estimated increase rate: 16%-25% per year from 2002-2012 in China
