Such benefits are encouraging the adoption of these services in manufacturing, petroleum, and infrastructure arenas.

Furthermore, steadily expanding global and cross-border trade are spurring market growth. Reduction in vehicle and fuel taxes in certain countries are further boosting the adoption of road transportation. The market is highly fragmented and characterized by high competition with the presence of established local and regional players.
