New Transportation research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research

[ClickPress, Wed Oct 15 2014] Following a year in which BMI believes saw increasing volumes in all of the Hungary's freight transport modes, 2014 will signal further growth across the whole sector, as the country's economic outlook continues improving.

Total trade is projected to pick up with our Country Risk desk forecasting a year-on-year (y-o-y) increase of 5.09% in 2014 following a growth of 5.28% in 2013.

Road freight is to continue to dominate the sector and is projected to grow by 1% in 2014. To the end of our forecast period to 2018, we expect the sector to defy the European Union (EU) pledges of a decrease in road haulage across the region. That is not to say, however, that road freight's market share is completely safe.

BMI notes that rail is the likeliest candidate in Hungary's freight transport mix to benefit from any diversification away from road, after the government of Hungary decided to construct a 113km railroad to reduce freight transit times across the country from the present four to five days to one day by 2018.
