The European Road Freight Sector under pressure

The European road haulage industry is under pressure as never before. Rising fuel prices combined with a hyper-competitive market place in which it is impossible to pass on costs, has had inevitable consequences on the sector. The influx of lower cost haulage companies from Central & Eastern Europe have made life even more difficult for domestic operators.

However this has not prevented the largest players in the industry from embarking on substantial acquisition programmes as they seek to increase the volumes in their networks. Kuehne + Nagel, DSV, Geodis and Norbert Dentressangle have all been highly active, seeking to challenge Schenker and DHL as market leaders.

European Road Freight Transport provides a comprehensive analysis of the industry allowing the reader to make informed strategic, investment or operational decisions in this highly complex and diverse market.
