Transport prices increase to a 3-year high

The eighth edition of the Transport Market Monitor (TMM) by TRANSPOREON and Capgemini Consulting reveals that transport prices increased by +7.8% in Q2 2011 compared to Q1 2011.

This increase has led to the highest price index (103.9) since the beginning of the TMM in Q1 2008 and a faster rise than the diesel index, which only marked +5.8%.

However, uncertainty in the economic climate within Europe and the US could cause differences in the seasonal pattern usually witnessed in the last two quarters of the year.
