The global logistic insurance market size is expected to reach USD 70.46 billion by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 2.8% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. With the surge in e-commerce activities, logistics companies are handling a larger volume of shipments, and this increases the risk of loss or damage. This makes logistics insurance an essential component of risk management, providing coverage against potential financial losses resulting from various incidents that may occur during the transportation of goods.
The use of digital technologies has favorably impacted the logistics insurance market. Logistics companies have adopted digitalization to facilitate gathering and analyzing data on shipments, which has provided valuable insights into potential risks and trends. This information has enabled logistics insurance companies to develop insurance products and pricing models that are more customized to the actual risks faced by logistics companies, resulting in accurate and effective risk management.
Logistics insurance companies are adopting the latest technologies to improve their service offerings, increase operational efficiency, and enhance customer experience. One of the key technologies that logistics insurance providers are adopting is automation, which involves the use of software to perform repetitive tasks and streamline processes. This includes automated underwriting and claims processing, which reduces the time and resources required to manage insurance policies and claims.
The COVID-19 pandemic had a slightly negative impact on the logistics insurance market. The pandemic has created significant uncertainty for logistics companies and insurers, making it difficult to assess and manage risk. This uncertainty resulted in insurers being more cautious in underwriting new policies, which limited the growth of the market.
