"Czech Republic Freight Transport Report Q2 2015" is now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

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 maintain growth in real terms, with our Country Risk desk forecasting a year-on-year (y-o-y) increase of 4.6% in 2015, following an estimated growth of 6.24% in 2014.

Road freight is to continue to dominate the sector and is projected to grow by 3% in 2015. BMI highlights that the EU-wide drive to decrease Europe's reliance on road freight and to diversify to greener freight transport alternatives could lead to a decline in road freight's market share. However, we expect road freight to continue to dominate the Czech Republic and Europe's freight transport sector over the medium term.

BMI notes that rail is the likeliest candidate in Czech Republic's freight transport mix to benefit from any diversification away from road.
