Accelerated Transformation of Food Delivery Logistic Market Landscape

Restaurants, and grocery stores were never this closer to their customers. While restaurant delivery has seen a robust double-digit surge in the recent past, e-commerce has played an indispensable role in this. The COVID-19 pandemic further gave a mammoth push to the entire food delivery business. Online food and grocery delivery became an overnight sensation and prime necessity, opening a huge window of opportunities for all industry participants. With restaurant owners, grocers, and a wide range of other food providers get on their toes to compete over customer reach, and profit margins, another important parameter that offers them an edge is the delivery speed. Food delivery logistic market has been buoyant over the recent past and will continue to witness an impressive growth outlook in future considering the solid activity in food delivery landscape.

Food Delivery Logistics Companies All Set for a Bright Future

In addition to rising restaurant services, budding home-based food providers, and increasing need for on-demand food delivery services, global food delivery logistic market receives an impetus from the ascending expenditure by food providers on food delivery logistics. Food delivery apps, and third-party delivery partners spearhead the last mile delivery game, whereas cloud kitchens have emerged as an exciting opportunity for potential new entrants to step into the booming food delivery logistic market space. Unprecedented proliferation of a range of delivery models like same day/next day delivery, or even same hour delivery over the recent past are further likely to uplift the growth prospects of food delivery logistic market. Moreover, evolving fleet types such as single, and multi-fleet, in-house fleet, and crowdsourced fleet have been elevating the scope of growth for food delivery logistic market players. Companies are exploring from the available options like delivery from store, delivery from robotic warehouses, and a curbside pickup. 

Shifting Consumer Behaviour Creates a Constantly Evolving Trend Wave

The food delivery industry remains largely influenced by the behavioural shifts of consumers who belong to the millennial generation. The US in fact has this clustre as the largest age demographic that has been triggering the evolution of food delivery trends. Specialised delivery continues to garner popularity worldwide, especially in the US, and the key European nations as they have been the trendsetters. With an increasing number of consumers showing preference for dining in over dining out at a restaurant, there will be escalating demand for customised food delivery options.

The International Food Information Council affirms that a fair proportion of the millennial consumer population would rather choose convenience even over taste to save on time, and effort. This trend has been creating ample opportunities in food delivery logistic market with innovations like custom meal kits, menu kits with fresh raw ingredients, prepared/ready fresh meals, and a variety of home food kits for families. Moreover, popular dietary trends like vegan, vegetarian, organic, clean label, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo also continue to uplift the prospects of specialised food subscriptions that help several brands identify and capture a loyal customer base.

Food Delivery Businesses Grow Intelligent with AI’s Logistical Assistance

Advent of technology has brought in an influx of opportunities in food delivery logistics landscape. Over the recent past, there has been ascending adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in food delivery logistics, which will continue to propel growth of food delivery logistic market. With advancing food delivery equations, consumer expectations are also reaching new heights and faster delivery remains one of them. Advanced route planning solution that serves to automate logistics planning for food delivery businesses has been a preferred strategy of many as it facilitates smart routing, saves on fuel, and slashes the overall logistical cost. The AI-enabled rider allocation software also remains popular as it helps to spot the right executives, assign delivery considering the proximity in terms of location, and rider’s delivery expertise and preferred service locations. Moreover, live trackers and real-time visibility tools allow remote monitoring to prevent unnecessarily delayed deliveries.

As brands strive to enhanced delivery efficiency, adoption of AI will continue to soar, working to the advantage of food delivery logistic market. Many have been focusing on achieving intelligent route planning, others are prioritising stronger distribution networks, and better infrastructure. Even logistics companies have also been taking efforts to stay abreast in terms of technology. A number of logistics businesses are budding recently, with/without collaboration with hotels, restaurants, cafés, and home food providers. This will also offer a significant push to local food delivery logistic markets.
