About This Report


The Road Freight Transport industry dominates the Australian market for non-bulk freight, with advantages in price, speed, convenience and reliability compared with other modes of transport. The industry's largest vehicles transport goods in and around states, competing with rail and airfreight industries. Within cities, light commercial vehicles are the dominant form of transport for the so-called last mile of delivery of goods. Yet, the industry has experienced turbulent times in the past five years. The industry has been put under stress first by rising fuel prices and then by falling demand in the wake of the global financial crisis.

This industry includes transport companies that ship freight by road. It also includes delivery services via road (excluding couriers), truck hire with driver and taxi truck services with driver. The industry does not include the in-house uses of fleet vehicles in mining, retail and construction.

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.
