Current Transport Issues

  • Global volume of trade rose by 9% last year. This fact, coupled with the rapid year on year increase in small volume deliveries, is good news for the transport industry.
  • The growth of China and India as significant manufacturing countries will have a profound effect on global transportation.
  • Transport is the fastest growing energy consumer in the EU with a 47% increase since 1985.
  • Fuel price increase will continue unabated and LGV driver shortages is a major issue.
  • The rise in internet shopping will put pressure on the transport infrastructure of many countries.
