Transport & Logistics
Overview of the Transport & Logistics Industry
The transportation industry includes services such as moving people and products and transportation infrastructure. According to the Global Industry Classification Standard, transportation is a sub-group of the industrial sector (GICS). Air freight and logistics, airlines, maritime, road and rail, and transportation infrastructure are part of the transportation sector.
The Logistics Industry includes all activities involved in the movement of goods from one point to another. It covers supply chain activities such as; transportation, customer service, inventory management, the flow of information and order processing. Other activities include warehousing, material handling, and purchasing.
The transportation sector is a broader but related sector of the logistics industry. It involves services to move people and goods from one place to another. It covers airlines & airports, rail & roads, shipping & ports and posts & post offices.
The Transportation and Logistics industry has evolved over the years in many ways. For example, a part of the Transportation sector is the ride borrowing companies. Car rental companies purchase or lease several fleet vehicles and rent them to their customers for a fee, E.g. Hertz and Enterprise. Also, ridesharing companies such as Uber, Bolt, etc., that operate via websites and mobile apps and match passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire make part of this industry.
The logistics industry has also evolved from having only big conglomerates to including small/local logistics companies. This industry offers several services, from cross-country delivery to delivering and picking packages from people’s doorsteps.
The sector also contains information technology, business management, engineering, and statistics roles. Speciality areas in this sector include distribution logistics, which focuses on getting goods to customers; disposal logistics, which deals with waste transportation. Also, increasingly, digital logistics aims to improve efficiency using computer software and automation.
Changes in business earnings and transportation service prices significantly impact the transportation industry’s performance. Fuel prices, labour costs, service demand, geopolitical events, and government regulation significantly impact company profits. Because the price of the commodity directly impacts transportation costs, oil prices are a significant factor in transportation. Increasing gas and fuel prices will raise a trucking company’s costs, reducing profit and lowering its stock price.
The global transportation services market is expected to recover and grow to $7.5 trillion in 2023. However, it decreased from $6.2 trillion in 2019 to $6 trillion in 2020. This decline was due to the economic slowdown worldwide, the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it.
The global logistics market was $9.6 trillion in 2018, according to research and consulting firm Armstrong & Associates Inc, with other estimates expecting the industry to reach $15 trillion by 2023.
“Across the continent, a lack of integration means that companies face smaller markets and red tape when crossing borders. According to the African Development Bank, the continent needs $130-170 billion per year in infrastructure investment—such as roads and railways—to meet baseline targets by 2025, implying a financing gap of $68-108 billion.”
Africa’s logistic industry is estimated to be a $160 Billion industry. However, this is despite the deficit in infrastructures (abysmal road and rail networks, modern ports and airports) that are the vital backbone for efficient transport and logistics. As of 2019, investment in the transportation infrastructure across Africa at all stages of development, from announcement to execution, reached US$430.3 billion.
The Ghana Statistical Service reports that GDP From Transport in Ghana increased to 2633.97 GHS Million in Q1 of 2022 from 2469.20 GHS Million in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Currently, domestic and international logistics providers, freight forwarders, air and ocean carriers, express shipment companies, and distributors are establishing a presence in Ghana. As a global Food Program’s logistics hub, shipping and logistics companies in Ghana demonstrated their capability by promptly delivering vital medical and humanitarian supplies to other African countries.
The new African Continental Free Trade Area should increase cross-border trade within Africa and create more opportunities for commercial shipping. With its experience and growing digital readiness, Ghana’s Atlantic ports and airports position it as a logistics hub for increased intra-African trade.
The 2022 Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index, compiled by Transport Intelligence (TI), ranked Ghana 32 overall, a rise of eight positions. This was the most significant increase in the overall rankings among all countries. Ghana ranked fifth on the African continent for logistics after Morocco (20), Egypt (21), South Africa (24) and Kenya (28). In addition, Ghana scored exceptionally high in digital readiness (5.14). Many logistics providers and investors are attracted to Ghana’s integrated technology in the cross-border movements of goods.
According to Statista, Transportation and storage added nearly 427 billion Kenyan shillings (KSh), approximately $3.8 billion, to Kenya’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the first half of 2021. The annual value added by the sector in 2020 was measured at 832 KSh billion (roughly 7.5 billion US dollars).
According to Ken Research, the Kenyan Logistics Market is expected to reach $5 Billion by 2023, growing at 11.7% during the forecast period 2018-2023.
Nigeria, the largest market in Africa, ranks 110th out of 160 countries regarding logistical efficiency, according to the World Bank. For example, it can take three times as long to import an auto part through Lagos, Nigeria, than through Cape Town, South Africa. And it can cost up to five times more to transport goods in sub-Saharan Africa than in the United States, based on 2015 estimates.
According to the Business for Africa report, the logistics sector, which makes up around 10 and 12 per cent of the GDP, declined by 4.4% in the fourth quarter of 2019. However, when considering a broader definition to cover sub-sectors like warehousing, road freight, and even pipeline volumes, which are sometimes not classified as logistics, the projected contribution of R274 billion is certainly much closer to R480 billion. When considering a “broader definition” as described above, the number is closer to 20% of South Africa’s GDP.
Transport expenses account for 57% of all logistics expenses, with inventory carrying expenses (15.2%), warehousing (14.6%), and management and administrative expenses (13.5%).
Digitisation and demand-driven logistics are pushing supply chains closer to demand
The number of warehouses and distribution centres has increased. The demand is growing with the advent of digitisation in this sector and increased demand for logistic services. SMEs owners now operate stores from their homes in a bid to meet up with demand.
Ecommerce adoption and middle-class growth in developing markets are speeding up supply-chain dynamics
The adoption of eCommerce is speeding up the supply chain dynamics. Companies are automating and optimising their supply chain for them to meet up with the growing demand. Also, as the middle-class citizens of several countries increase, so is the need for a faster and more reliable supply.
Same-day delivery of goods
The growth in eCommerce and increase in customers’ desire to get their goods on the same day they are ordered has led to the explosion of delivery bikes. In the bid to meet the demand for same-day delivery of ordered goods/products, logistics companies are increasingly adopting the use of bikes to aid efficiency and customer satisfaction.
Drone for delivery
Drone delivery comes into play due to the digitisation in this industry. Drones are being used to deliver goods to customers by logistics companies. In emergencies, they are used to deliver drugs/vaccines to rural areas.
Changing regulatory oversight for new transportation technologies
The concept that regulations can be left in place for long periods has been debunked by new emerging technologies being adopted in this sector. As new business models and services arise, such as ridesharing services, government agencies are faced with creating or changing regulations, enforcing them, and communicating them to the public.
Private sector development of transportation infrastructure in developing countries like Nigeria for tax relief
Players in this industry in developing countries are developing transportation infrastructure to meet demand, improve customer satisfaction, and generate more revenue. With the tax relief policy, companies have more to spend on developing infrastructure in this industry, contributing to the country’s GDP.
Remote work to reduce the burden on transport and logistics systems
As several companies still adopt working remotely for their work after the lockdown caused by the pandemic, the transport and logistics systems burden has been reduced. As the remote workers are reducing the number of commuters on roads. As a result, traffic has diminished in some cities.
Electric vehicles (cars, buses, bikes etc.)
The days of Fossil fuel engines or automobiles are gradually fizzling out as electric cars, buses, trucks, and even bikes are moving into the market. According to a report by Exploding Topic, while vehicle sales dropped 29% in the first three quarters of 2020, electric vehicle sales increased 119%. There is also an increase in diverse kinds of electric vehicles. Some of the players are Tesla, Toyota, etc.
Urban use of bicycles with roads developed to have a bicycle network
This is a growing trend in developed and some developing countries as residents use bicycles for transportation. Road segments in advanced countries are dedicated to bicycle users to ensure safety while plying the road.
Low-cost airlines flight
Travelling by air has been viewed by many as a luxury; maybe that was true for some time. However, airlines are now making air travel easier and more accessible to many by stripping it down to essentials. Consumers have long understood that they get what they pay for. Most air travellers considered inexpensive rates for non-luxurious air travel to be a good deal. There is also a provision to fly first-class air travel (Luxury) with more expense.

SDG 8- Decent work and economic growth
The Transportation and logistics industry is contributing to the employment rate in several countries as they provide jobs for people from all walks of life and thereby contribute to the countries’ economic growth.
SDG 9 – Industrial innovation and infrastructure
The transportation and logistics industry contributes to the infrastructural development of cities and innovation for the success of industries by building modern facilities and adopting technological innovation in the supply chain systems.
SDG 13 – Climate Actions
Technological innovation reduces the transportation and logistics industry’s carbon footprint. For example, electric automobiles used in this sector have helped reduce the carbon footprint. Using bikes and drones for delivery also contributes to ensuring a clean environment.
The poor state of transport infrastructure in developing countries
The poor transport infrastructure in these developing countries is alarming and calls for an urgent intervention to boost the countries’ economies. There is little to no investment in water transportation systems in developing countries. There is a need to embrace innovative financing mechanisms such as PPP (Private-Public Partnership) arrangements to build state of the heart transport infrastructure.
Last-mile delivery to remote areas
Delivering products to remote areas of the country has been a major challenge for logistics companies. Many of these areas are far from ports, have bad roads or are detached from the city. As a result, drones are being used for last-mile delivery to remote locations, which has proven more effective and saves cost.
Lack of connectivity across borders and integration across countries, especially in Africa
Most African countries lack favourable conditions for regional integration to succeed, and leaders make little effort to create such conditions. Therefore, aside from the frequently noted issues of corruption, instability, undemocratic rule, and civil unrest, ensuring easy access and improving proximity between economic agents within Africa to the market will further boost the productivity of this sector.
Underutilisation of trucks on to and fro trips
The underutilisation of trucks on to and fro tips has been a challenge in this sector. Trucks are often filled/full with goods, loads etc., at the take-off point till the goods/loads they carried are delivered to their destination but often return to the port empty.
Heavy dependence on road transport in some African countries
In some African countries, the major means of transport is by road as there are no waterways, and the cost of transportation by air is expensive. Using the road as a major means of transport comes with its challenges, coupled with the fact that most of these roads are in poor condition. Some African countries are investing in trains in response to the poor transport network to boost the country’s economy.
Poor addressing systems make logistics difficult.
The poor addressing systems in some regions/countries are taking a toll on this sector. For example, logistics and transport companies that rely solely on an address to get customers to a destination or deliver goods are having difficulties due to this. There are digital addressing systems tackling this, like Google Maps, which helps with addressing and gives people the access to register location problems. However, there is still a long way to go.
Road accidents are a significant killer in many countries
The transportation sector in many countries accounts for major accidents. Many factors caused this, from drivers’ recklessness to brake failures, bad roads, non-adherence to rules, etc. This is a significant concern in several countries, which has led to the creation of several agencies and bodies to keep the
The welfare of gig workers in logistics
Most of the time, gig workers work as freelancers with companies, and using their services saves companies revenue. But often, aside from the basic salary or agreed price for services, most companies have no other benefit to offer to their gig workers. The safety of gig workers has also been a concern as the level of insecurity increases.
Digital addressing systems in areas with a terrible street numbering system
With the most recent geocoding technology available, digital addressing is a cutting-edge and revolutionary method of assigning addresses within a restricted area. In addition, this addressing method is remarkably durable since it endures the test of time regardless of changes in environments and borders.
Transport and logistics vessels tracking with the Internet of Things
Deliveries between production facilities, vendors, and customers can be tracked using IoT technologies. A business can analyse the data generated by tracking and tracing deliveries. The analysis can predict consumer preferences, discover patterns, and then look for any potential supply chain breakdowns while increasing customer satisfaction.
Blockchain for supply chain contract management
Supply chain companies are using blockchain to enable smart contracts, increase trust from clients, and make all digital payments safer. In addition, blockchain implementation in this industry can make audits more transparent and improve security as it can help track fraudulent activities faster.
3D/4D Printing to reduce the burden on transport and logistics systems
The introduction of 3D/4D technology has been a significant technological advancement in this field. On-site manufacturing of items has become possible thanks to 3D/4D printing. It has decreased the necessity to export finished goods while transferring transportation loads to lower volume raw materials.
Autonomous vehicles can operate without human intervention and are expected to aid the transportation sector in navigating traffic congestion, improving driver safety, reducing carbon emissions, and lowering total transportation costs. Autonomous vehicles will be safe and dependable by 2025 and may be commercially available in many places by 2030.
Robotic Process Automation
To meet the delivery demands of modern clients, fulfilment centres can no longer rely on manual and outdated operations. Such automation, which employs current machine learning algorithms, will aid in eliminating manual chores, improving after-sales service, and alleviating labour shortages. These improve customer experience and enable corporate agility.
Drones for last-mile delivery to remote areas with experimentation in eCommerce
As last-mile delivery becomes increasingly difficult and expensive, logistics businesses turn to drones to make deliveries. As a result, drone delivery will become a popular option for firms in this market looking to improve the efficiency of last-mile delivery while lowering costs.
Ridesharing and carpool services powered by internet technologies
Gone are the days when getting a car to your location required going to a traditional bus/car station. Instead, people can now use internet technology to order a car with a pickup and drop-off location through firms like Uber, Lyft, and others. Also made feasible by IoT technology is the sharing of car journeys. It allows more than one person to travel in a car and eliminates the need for others to drive to a spot themselves.
Predictive analysis and intelligent transport systems with big data
Big data analytics aid the public transportation sector in accurately forecast passenger numbers and expectations. Companies can build system-based sales projections using big data analytics. Transportation and logistics companies can use the knowledge from the data to establish sales tactics and improve their services.
Optimisation of supply chains with big data
Using big data to optimise supply chains helps deliver things to customers at the lowest possible cost and profit. Big supply chain analytics employs data and quantitative methodologies to improve decision-making across the supply chain: from planning and scheduling to inventory planning and development, demand and supply planning, and everything in between.
This is an industry that hires a lot of people who don’t have a tertiary education. However, the bulk of management positions necessitates a bachelor’s degree, especially for large transportation corporations like airlines and fleets and logistics firms.

Communication & Persuasion
Because your job needs you to interact with individuals from various walks of life, from customers to coworkers and bosses, you must establish a positive relationship with everyone you interact with. Also, while working with clients, there is little to no space for miscommunication, so making sure you communicate effectively is critical.
Analysis & Problem Solving
While working in this industry, several challenges arise, like delayed product delivery due to traffic, increased service charges, and demanding customers. Therefore, analysing data is essential in this industry as it helps businesses understand their customer’s needs and where they need to up their game.
Networking & Team Working
Companies in the transportation and logistics sector are always goal-oriented, and individuals in this sector will have to collaborate with a wide range of people to reach these goals. As a result, strong teamwork abilities are required. You must realise that to get things done and achieve results, you must collaborate with other professionals. Every member of the team must be treated with respect and professionalism.
Numeracy & Financial Literacy
Being able to understand and work with numbers is an important skill to possess in this industry. As you interface with clients, using numbers for logistics becomes imperative. For example, basic knowledge of numbers and money is needed when communicating the price of services and taking customer orders.
Planning & Organisation
Planning and organising skill is essential to ensure the highest service level performance. This skill is critical to planning effectively and organising to meet customers’ demands and give them a good customer experience.
Digital Skills: Modelling & Simulation and Data Analytics
The transport and logistics industry is highly data and technology-led, hence the need for workers to be digitally literate. Having digital skills like Digital Analysis, Modelling and simulation, Social Media management etc., would give you an edge in entering this industry.
The industry is ubiquitous. It is highly competitive and can be tough to get a role in. It is an industry with several non-graduate positions where candidates with experience can favourably compete with fresh-out-of-school graduates. Hence, there is a need to stand out. Large logistics companies such as DHL and FMCGs such as Nestle have graduate schemes. The supply chain is one of the vital business areas that graduates can explore or build a career in during rotations during the graduate scheme.
Advertised internships may be hard to come by. However, small and medium businesses and startups providing logistics and transportation services can arrange internship opportunities if directly approached for a place. Clearly stating what you can contribute improves your chances of getting an internship. You will also gain practical experience in local organisations and charities that distribute relief and products to beneficiaries. In addition, manual jobs such as warehousing and dispatching provide a beyond-the-office view of the industry.
The barrier to entry of starting a business in the industry is low. However, it is an industry with both many starters and failures. Creating a successful logistics business takes more than having a bike or van. You need to research and gain insights into your potential customers, the nature and frequency of deliveries and a pricing model that works for you and your customers. Several platforms are also democratising logistics service delivery. In addition, the rapid boom in the logistics and transport industry has led to more regulatory oversight in several countries.
Transport and logistics are one of the most prominent and most visible industries. It has many operators, companies, service providers, professionals and workers. Moreover, it is an industry with the active participation of not only logistics and transport companies but also companies in manufacturing and supplying goods.
Daily tasks include coordinating transportation and delivery, managing costs for transporting goods and people, and ensuring time targets while communicating with customers and other players in the industry. As goods and people are always on the move, it is an industry that never sleeps.
It is a high-pressure industry. Dispatches have to be on time – hitches can result in a negative customer experience that can negatively affect a company’s bottom line.
Despite the increased automation and digitisation in the industry, it largely remains an industry that involves a lot of fieldwork.
Some roles require geographic mobility coordinating pickups, transportation and deliveries. Travelling is often necessary, even for those in management roles. Many professionals in the industry rely on mobile phones or other handheld devices for tracking the movement of goods and communicating with other staff.
