The concept of Freight as a Service has similarities with the Mobility as a Service paradigm, sharing the same objectives in terms of cost reduction and resource utilization improvements through a higher Freight Load Factor (FLF) as well as the adoption of the same sharing economy business models such as cargo market places, on-demand transportation, freight brokerage and ridesharing heralding an era of uberization of delivery and trucking. The last-mile freight delivery segment will see the largest upheaval due to the rapid adoption of e-commerce and the need for faster, cheaper, on-demand delivery requiring new transportation modes and technologies such as delivery drones and robot, direct-to-car and direct-to-home delivery.

This report covers the main smart freight trends, technologies, players and market dynamics as well as revenue forecasts.
