Teleroute sees stabilization in the road freight transport

The results of the first Semester of the year extracted from the Teleroute platform have confirmed a stabilization in the road freight transport, with numbers very similar to those of last year.

Although the volume is -4% less compared to the same period of 2021, this year’s results have been conditioned by the conflict in Ukraine and its consequences, including inflation and rising fuel costs.

Despite that, in this first half of the year, over 33 million loads were offered via Teleroute. We can therefore say that the situation on the continent has conditioned the number of freight offers, but in no case has it led to a worrying decrease.

Towards a challenging Summer season

Now that COVID-19 restrictions are practically non-existent across Europe, the Summer season could be a great opportunity for the transport sector.

So, depending on how the situation in the continent evolves, it’s easy to foresee a lot of travel and consumption that could favor the activity. Mainly at the national level, where we’ve found a 1% growth in the last six months when comparing this period with the same in 2021. 

In this regard, freight offers with origin and destination in the same country now exceed 10 million, almost on a par with the same period last year. This growth has been noticeable in important markets such as Italy and Germany, with 24% and 48%, respectively. France should also be mentioned, where the sum of freight offers for these first six months of the year has exceeded two and a half million, which is 4% more than in the same period of 2021.

These data show not only the significant percentage of national transport offers on Teleroute’s platform, but also that there are more and more of them, which offers drivers a wide range of possibilities both inside and outside their home country. After all, many carriers still prefer to work within their own country, and, with Teleroute's tool, they have thousands of offers available every day for both domestic and international routes.
