Report Published: "Romania Freight Transport Report Q1 2015"

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Jan 08 2015

Following a year which saw increasing volumes across Romania's freight transport sector, we believe 2015 will signal further growth in line with the country's macroeconomic outlook.

Total trade is projected to pick up with our Country Risk desk forecasting a year-on-year (y-o-y) increase of 6% in 2015, following an estimated growth of 6.5% in 2014.

Road freight will continue to dominate the sector, with growth of around 2% projected for 2015. The mode did not manage to defy the downturn, but so far appears to have defied European Union (EU) pledges to cut road haulage across the region - that is not to say, however, that the road freight's market share is necessarily safe.

BMI notes that rail is the likeliest candidate in Romania's freight transport mix to benefit from any diversification away from road, although currently it is expected to grow at a slower pace. In the longer term the mode might benefit from the privatisation of Romania's national rail freight company CFR Marfa.
