Transport prices recover

A slight recovery in transport prices has been indicated by the price index for European road transport rates improving by 1.2 per cent in Q4 2013 compared to Q3, up 3.1 per cent on the same period last year.

In Q4 the capacity index was down by 3.1 per cent, and the diesel index too was down by 2.3 per cent compared to Q3 2013.

Transporeon and Capgemini said in their Transport Market Monitor: “Both market dynamics and lasting economic uncertainties emphasize the need to monitor transport price developments very closely, to mitigate the risk of any unexpected negative impact on company results.”
