Logistics is the detailed flow of the products from the point of origin to the point of consumption to meet the requirements of corporations and consumers. It aids in planning, controlling as well as implementing the storage and flow of goods and services. It also helps to maintain a continuous supply of non-durable and durable products from various distributors and suppliers. Owing to this, logistics plays a crucial role in the food industry. Transportation and logistics providers use different equipment, expertise and technologies to control and improve the supply chain operations.

The growth of the global food logistics market is majorly driven by a rapid rise in the prevalence of e-retail in the food and retail sector. As logistics forms a significant part of the storing, transporting and delivery of the goods purchased online, this has provided a positive thrust to the market growth. Apart from this, the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has enabled logistics companies to increase delivery efficiency. For instance, United Parcel Service (UPS), an American multinational package delivery and supply chain management company, utilizes AI algorithms for intelligent route planning. This helps in reducing delivery times without damaging perishable food products. Some of the other factors which are positively influencing the market include improving distribution networks and infrastructure in developing regions, and the adoption of new technologies by logistics providers for enhancing their business processes.
