According to The Business Research Company’s Freight Forwarding Global Market Report 2023, the market size will grow from $191.01 billion in 2022 to $199.09 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The market size of freight forwarding is expected to grow to $224.78 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 3.1%.

Growth in international trade volumes is significantly contributing to the growth of the freight forwarding market. International trade is the exchange of services and products between countries. Trading globally will give the consumers and countries the chance to be exposed to goods and services that are not available in their own countries or costlier domestically. Freight forwarders organize the intermodal transportation of goods on behalf of shippers, and increased trade volume will boost freight forwarding activities.
