20 Jun Road Congestion easing?
The Department for Transport has published its statistics for the first quarter of 2013. This indicates that HGV traffic levels in the UK were down by 3.8% against January to March 2012. With 3.7 billion vehicle miles involved, there are still an awful lot of trucks on the road, but the fall in volume demonstrates that hauliers continue to face tough market conditions. Whilst congestion may have reduced leading to slightly improved service reliability, falling demand will not help haulier profitability.
