Light at the end of the tunnel for Dutch international transporters
According to the quarterly analysis by ING bank, the first signs of improvement in the road transport market will be seen in the international sector. ING nevertheless predicts that turnover in the sector will fall back by 1% during 2012, and then improve by 2% in 2013. And while indicators and historical facts remain worrying (particularly in terms of company closures), confidence indicators are beginning to come out of the red. For the first time, transport companies are expecting to see their turnover rise in the three months to come, and the major shippers are of the same opinion.
