About This Report

  
Abstract:

The Freight Road Transport industry operates across the most extensive transport network of all freight modes, providing much-needed flexibility and the convenience of door-to-door delivery. The industry has historically offered shorter and more reliable delivery times and less damage to goods than other freight methods. These competitive advantages resulted in huge growth in the share of goods transported by road in the five years through 2008-09. The total freight task has increased by about 148% since the 1950s and the percentage of this freight carried by road has doubled in the same time. Approximately 60% of all freight moved within the United Kingdom is transported by road.

Industry firms transport freight by road. This includes bulk, stock and heavy haulage; refrigerated and liquid haulage; and the transport of cars, waste and waste materials. Packing and the operation of freight terminals are not covered by the industry.

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.
