The Container Repair and Other Services to Transport industry amended its revenue from declines during the global economic downturn. Overall, industry revenue is forecast to increase at an annualised 1.1% over the five years through 2012-13 to reach $1.52 billion. Demand for industry services has recovered strongly from the poor conditions of the global economic downturn. Nonetheless, the downturn slowed revenue growth over the past five years as freight volumes fell. Bitter economic conditions in Europe caused demand for Australian wool to decline sharply. Drought conditions also decimated sheep numbers and lowered wool production.
Companies in this industry provide services to transport. These services include crating and packing; freight brokerage; transport container repair or refurbishing; and wool dumping.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
