European road transport market recovers

The latest edition of the Transport Market Monitor by Transporeon and Capgemini Consulting outlines developments in European road transport rates in Q1/2014. According to the survey, the price index decreased by 9.6% in Q1/2014 vis-à-vis that of Q4/2013. However, when the Q1/2014 index is compared to the index level of Q1/2013, this year’s price index is 1.4% higher.


In Q1/2014, the diesel index decreased by 2.4% to index 101, whilst the capacity index increased strongly to index 114.4 (+36.9%). Although the price index decreased in Q1/2014, it is still higher than last year and this indicates that the recovery endured. In Q2/2014 a strong recovery of the price index can be expected.


Over the last years transport prices have become increasingly volatile, this reinforces the need to monitor them closely.
