Cross-Channel road freight pricing review Q4 2016
Dec 28th, 2016
Q4 has seen some adjustment to the new environment after the shock of the Brexit vote and the related strong currency swing. We have had a period of the market correcting itself to reflect the new environment. The removal of “the jungle” in Calais, which had caused significant disturbances to freight operations, and a period of stability in ferry services, have together prevented the appalling queues and problems we had earlier in the year. Fuel prices have begun to creep upwards through the period from around €1.12 to around €1.20, adding some further price pressure.
