Global Road Freight Drivers and Constraints


Retail Sales:

  •  Retail sales will increase by 5–6 percent, which will in turn drive the demand for trucking
  • Retail e-commerce is growing at 14–15 percent per annum, which will create new demand for logistics, particularly in metropolitan areas

Transport Infrastructure:

  • An efficient transport sector with advanced infrastructure is an important element of any economy, helping to stimulate development, thus cutting the lead time and costs of trucking

Global Trade Activity:

  • During the last decade, increased production of high-value and light-weight goods and expanded trade among the member countries results in increased road freight transportation


  • Because growth in GDP implies increased economic activity, there is a positive correlation between the development of freight transport and GDP, where any increase in GDP is directly related to the increase in road freight services in that region


Fuel Rate

  • Fuel prices account for nearly 30–35 percent of trucking freight rates, thus having a major impact on pricing. Fuel prices, which have been low, are forecasted to increase in the second half of the year

Shortage of Drivers:

  • Driver wages account for nearly 30–35 percent of carriers' operating costs. Driver wages are expected to increase due to the prevalent shortages in the industry, coupled with a strong demand for qualified drivers and the same trend is expected to continue in countries such as the US,UK and Western Europe.
