  • Qualitative and quantitative summaries of the state of each country’s logistics market
  • Measures of logistics performance and infrastructure quality
  • Market sizing data
  • Rankings of the largest logistics providers
  • Infrastructure maps highlighting core logistics hubs

Market sizes and forecasts for the express and small parcels, road freight, contract logistics and freight forwarding sectors are presented, in addition to road, air and sea volume data.

What will it tell you?

The Leading Transport and Logistics Markets report finds that European logistics market growth has accelerated notably over the past few years with express and parcels ticking over faster than other core logistics markets as it continues to benefit from the structural shift to online retail. Road freight and contract logistics are seeing slower progress as they are far more tied to economic growth. Freight forwarding is a different story as global economic conditions matter more, and growth has continued to pick up since the final quarter of last year. The report explains this in more detail and will help you to develop your strategy to make the most of the upturn in the region.
