[ClickPress, Fri Feb 20 2015] Czech Republic's freight transport sector will continue growth in 2015 in line with the country's improving economic outlook, following a year in which BMI believes saw increases in volumes across the whole sector.

Total trade is projected to continue picking up in real terms, with our Country Risk desk forecasting a year-on-year (y-o-y) increase of 3.94% in 2015, following an estimated growth of 8.08% in 2014.

Road freight is continues dominating the sector and is projected to grow by 2% in 2015. To the end of our forecast period to 2019, 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.
