The report includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

According to the report, one of the main drivers of the market is the increase in the usage of intermodal services, which help logistics vendors to transport material using different modes of transportation such as rail, road, and sea taking into account their cost and flexibility.

Further, the report states that the lack of infrastructure in several countries in Europe and North America makes it difficult for many players to expand their network beyond their domestic boundaries. Lack of infrastructure worsens capacity issues for road and rail transportation at ports and in hinterland areas. The increasing restrictions on transportation of hazardous goods in certain countries and the complexity and effort of obtaining permits for new intermodal terminals are increasing the overall transit time and cost for chemical logistics vendors.
