The government should invest in infrastructure specifically in road since it is a landlocked country in order to improve the trade scenario and help the market grow.

Establishments of industrial/business parks:  Uganda Investment Authority (UIA) has rolled out a plan to build six new industrial and business parks in Jinja, Nakasongola, Arua, Buliisa, Gulu and Lira districts in 2017/18. Increase in the industrial and business parks create an opportunity for the development of warehouses and therefore, boosted the Uganda warehousing market in the review period (2013-18).

Emergence of Crowd Sourcing Model: Crowd sourced delivery model has gained popularity over the years and many startups have emerged to cater to the on- demand faster delivery services to the end users. For instance, GetBoda, a delivery company in Uganda, uses a crowd sourced model which connects multiple boda boda riders, track and van drivers, with third party logistics companies into a single network that is accessible using mobile phone and web application called GetBoda.

Technological advancements: The freight forwarding companies are focusing on technologies that would help them keep a track of the cargo being transported preventing the loss of cargo and allowing timely delivery of products.  Asycuda World is an online portal which helps keep a track of all the sea cargo which is unloaded at Mombasa and brought to the country by road. Warehousing companies use different warehouse management systems to improve their operating efficiency while courier and parcel companies use technology like tracking systems to offer real time tracking to its customers. These technological advancements have improved the services and hence, boosted the revenue for the sector in the country.

 Growth of e-commerce sector: With the advent of digitization, there has been a growth in the number of e- commerce players namely as in the country to cater the demand of the end users. The growth in e-commerce sector has not only boosted the growth for warehousing market in Uganda but also has provided new revenue stream to the courier and parcel operators.
