3PL Market Roundup – October 2023

Coming into what is normally peak period, rates have remained largely steady with a very slight increase in some States, however, not what we would traditionally see in peak period.

Peak season hasn’t reached its highs of previous years, with confidence low and consumer spending dialled right back, we don’t anticipate to see that type of volume this year.

Stability in the market is welcome. After years of volatility, some certainty on conditions will provide some additional confidence and assurance for decision makers.

Additionally, heading into this time of year, we are not seeing the typical surge in demand for overflow and short-term storage. This could mean there is a buildup of capacity, which may translate into some good opportunities post peak season.
