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.
"The development indicates that we are moving back to capacity levels seen in years prior to 2017; this was when more capacity was available on the market. One reason could be that economic growth is stalling. According to the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat), industrial production in the Euro zone fell by 0.3 % from August to September 2018. For the coming year, the EU Commission has lowered its forecasts for economic growth in the Euro zone, especially for France, highly indebted Italy, and Germany. According to the German Council of Economic Experts, growth slowed in Q3 2018 due to problems in the automotive industry with WLTP, the new light-vehicle fuel consumption and emissions test procedure."Oliver Kahrs, Managing Director TIM CONSULT
