What is the future for the European Road Freight Industry?

The road freight sector has been amongst the hardest hit in the transport industry in Europe. At the worst point of the downturn in mid-2009, Ti estimates that road freight companies’ revenues had fallen by a quarter.

The industry has had to cope with the global downturn which resulted in lower consumer demand and reduced production especially in sectors such as automotive. However, even though the economy has picked up, it faces challenges ahead including additional regulations and cost fluctuations, especially from the volatile price of fuel.

The fall out from the recession has been the loss of many companies which were not able to cope with the falling demand/increased cost environment. Many mid-size, niche companies have gone out of business, leaving their customers with the challenge of finding a comparable replacement. Others have substantially reduced their fleet size. This will have consequences both from the perspective of quantity of supply (forcing up prices) as well as quality of service.

There is considerable opportunity for investment with rising demand and rising prices. However there is a wide-spread reluctance to do so. This, combined with the prospects of the fuel price and driver shortages, is likely to result in continued tightcapacity.
