State of the E-logistics Market Q1-CY17- Executive Summary

Sector Assessment Scorecard: Q1-CY17 Performance

After two successive quarters of growth, the Indian E-logistics market experienced a slowdown in Q1-CY17

E-logistics slowdown mirrors the stagnating trend seen in Indian e-tailing market

E-tailing driven logistics stagnation has affected both forward and reverse shipments; increasing share of captive orders has further hurt 3PLs

3PLs have responded by diversifying into new segments; large shipments are on an upswing despite a hiccup in Q1-17 while hyperlocal continues to grow

3PLs have also been able to grow the share of long tail clients and increase their non-ecommerce business

Despite industry stagnation, e-logistics players have continue to build FCs- which has resulted in failing capacity utilization

Last mile DCs have also been growing for industry- but again with falling capacity utilization

Growth in FC and DC network for industry has had limited impact on the delivery reliability of the industry

However, growing FC count has helped to increase % of (low cost) surface shipments; industry has also performed well on other key cost levers

Better management of cost drivers has helped industry bring down its CPS steadily; however revenue has been stagnant
