As components are manufactured by various suppliers, inbound logistics has the largest share among the automotive logistics services.

Asia Oceania is estimated to be the largest and fastest growing market for automotive logistics during the forecast period.
Asia Oceania has emerged as a hub for automotive production in recent years because of changing consumer preferences, increasing disposable income of the middle-class, and cost advantages for OEMs. China is the largest contributor, in terms of vehicle production, in the Asia Oceania region and accounted for approximately 24.9% of the global vehicle production in 2017. With the One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative, China plans to improve infrastructure connectivity in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, and Europe. The launch of the OBOR project augurs well for the automotive logistics industry as it would lead to seamless connectivity.
