The 2016 edition of the 'European Road Freight Transport' report includes the latest research on the dynamics of the road freight sector.
It examines the economic drivers of the road freight industry as well as highlighting what is considered as a typical cost structure for European hauliers.
Not only this, the report includes comprehensive profiles of 20 European countries. Included within these is an overview of the road freight market within that country as well as analysis of the infrastructure.
In addition, on a country-level basis, we have collated Top 10s, wherever possible, of the top logistics providers within the countries, as well as insight into the origin and destinations of road freight within each country.
European Road Freight Transport 2016 also includes our bespoke market size data, forecasts and analysis of the domestic and international road freight markets from both a regional and country-level perspective.
- The road freight sector is not one single market. Rather, it is divided up into a number of different segments that may overlap, yet operate in distinctly different patterns and serve different customer types.
- The European road freight transport market is highly fragmented. The top 10 players are estimated to have accounted for only 10% of the market in 2015.
- The economy in Europe has experienced some recovery in the Eurozone and continued growth in the UK, Sweden and parts of Central Europe. Despite this, the road freight market remains muted.
- In 2015, the European road freight market is estimated to have grown by 2.5% in nominal terms, slightly lower than 2.8% growth in 2014.
- Market growth has been driven by volume growth in 2016, whereas the impact of changing transport prices is thought to have been smaller than the previous year, but slightly negative overall.
- European road freight industry is on the threshold of a period of systemic change which will transform operating models and disrupt markets.
- Several competing alternative fuels are being developed and although still not competitive against fossil fuels at the moment, they have the potential to transform the industry in the near future.
- Manufacturers are investing huge sums in battery technology and it seems inevitable that in the next five years it will become feasible for even the largest trucks to be powered by electricity.
- Central Europe has emerged as an important location for manufacturing operations. These are usually serving markets in Western Europe or are reliant on supply chains based in Western Europe. This has the effect of increasing demand for international road freight.
- Implementation of a minimum hourly wage for drivers in France and Germany is likely to affect the cost structure of road freight providers operating in these markets.
