Recently published research from Business Monitor International, "Slovenia Freight Transport Report 2015", is now available at Fast Market Research

[ClickPress, Thu Dec 18 2014] We anticipate year-on-year (y-o-y) improvements across the board in the Slovenian freight transport mix in 2015, which mirrors the upgraded growth estimate and forecast for the economy as a whole in 2014 and 2015 respectively. This growth will be built on the back of stronger than expected exports, as well as early indications that household consumption is finally recovering. Nonetheless, a considerable corporate debt overhang and government austerity plans will cap the overall pace of real GDP growth.

The Slovenian freight sector will certainly be buoyed going forward by stronger than expected exports in the first half of 2014, which bodes well for tonnage handled across the freight modes in 2015. With that in mind, the outperformer in terms of y-o-y growth is set to be the country's smallest mode by output, the air freight sector (5.69%), while the rail and road modes are both set to record steady growth over the next 12 months (4.40% and 4.80% respectively).
