Strong freight capacity increase highlights decline in economic growth

The strong increase in available transport capacity that we monitored in 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 supports this view and an assumed increase of the price-adjusted GDP by only one percent.“

Oliver Kahrs

Managing Director Tim Consult

The transport price index for Q1 2019 is 1.3% higher than it was in Q1 2018. But this year prices should have been lower than at the start of 2018, as this year 14.9% additional freight capacity became available. If we only look at transports within Germany, in the past quarter prices were even 4.5% higher than in Q1 2018. One reason could be the adjustment of truck toll rates that took place in January.“
