  • Strong increase in transport capacities proves decline in economic growth
    The thirty-ninth edition of the Transport Market Monitor by TIM CONSULT and Transporeon assesses European transport and haulage dynamics

Transport Market Monitor

The Transport Market Monitor by TRANSPOREON and TIM CONSULT is a quarterly publication that aims to track transport market dynamics.
The purpose of the Transport Market Monitor is to provide insights into the development of transport prices, and other transport market dynamics to logistics executives and other interest groups. It is a joint initiative by TRANSPOREON and TIM CONSULT.
The indices in the Monitor are based on the logistics platform TRANSPOREON, on which shippers tender and process their transport needs to their preferred transport partners on a daily basis. This results in monthly indices which are published on a quarterly basis. In addition to each publication of the Monitor, one or more market themes are discussed, supported by detailed analysis.
TRANSPOREON and TIM CONSULT can help you to find the right strategy between static and dynamic prices. Additional market information per industry, region or international traffic lane is available upon request.

Main highlights of the Transport Market Monitor

  • In the 1st quarter of 2019, the capacity index rose by 31.4% over the previous quarter to 126.5 index points (Q4 2018: index 96.3).
  • The transport price index fell in Q1 2019 to 93.3, which equals a drop of 8.4% compared to the 4th quarter (index 101.8). The price index was thus 1.3% higher than in Q1 2018 (index 92.1).
  • The diesel price index fell by 9.3% over the 4th quarter of 2018.

"The strong increase in available transport capacity that we monitored in the recent months is initial evidence of a slowdown in economic growth. The German government’s Annual Economic Report 2019 published at the end of January is supporting this view, which assumes an increase of the price-adjusted GDP by only one percent."
