India’s last-mile delivery market is set to touch a market size of $6-7 billion by 2024, moving in a similar direction to markets like China and the US, where the penetration has reached more than 10 percent, a new report said on Monday.

India’s last-mile delivery consists of FMCG, e-commerce, retail, and other categories. Of these, FMCG constitutes the highest, followed by e-commerce, according to a report by Bengaluru-based market research firm RedSeer.

“In the e-commerce sector, logistics is divided between captive and third-party logistics (3PL). The overall e-commerce shipments has grown from 817 million shipments in 2018 to 1,364 million shipments last year, and is expected to grow over 5,000 million by 2025,” said Kanishka Mohan, a Director with RedSeer.

The overall road logistics constitutes nearly 8 percent of the overall GDP of the country across the value creation cycle road logistics contributes the highest in the overall logistics market.

“Road logistics is a market size of $240 billion with 75 per cent share of the overall market size,” Mohan said in a statement.

It is divided between Intracity and intercity logistics.

Intra-city logistics, which includes the last mile delivery, is the movement of goods within 200 km (one side), with a round trip of fewer than 24 hours and a load less than 5 tonnes.

“It currently represents about 18 per cent of the overall logistics. In the intra-city segment, the market is dominated by players like Porter, LetsTransport, Blowhorn and Lynk,” the report showed.

Logistics have remained a backbone for many industries and, over the years, have enhanced its technology-based offerings to suit various sectors and their needs.

Today, the larger market is divided based on roads, warehousing, and other transport, the report said.
