Transport barometer promises sunnier times

[ May 11, 2015   //   ]

After a surprisingly weak last quarter in 2014, January and February freight volume in Europe was higher than it was in the last three years, according to the TimoCom’s transport barometer. At the end of the first quarter of 2015, the barometer indicates a freight to vehicle ratio of 39:61 for the European transport market and gives hope for the future. The European freight and vehicle exchange says: “You would have to go back several years to find a similarly strong start of a year. Only in 2011, January had higher numbers, both for the freight to vehicle ratio and the total freight volume, than January 2015.”
