Despite the insignificant dynamics of GDP and industrial production index
The market for road transport of goods in Russia will grow by the end of the year, analysts at Finam JSC Alexey Kalachev predicts. The expert bases his conclusions on statistics based on the results of the first half of the year. So, in the reporting period, the freight turnover of automobile transport of all types of economic activity grew by 7.6% compared to the same period of 2018. Including without regard to small businesses – by 10.5%. Transmits “Logirus”.
– The trucking market is directly related to production activity. The GDP growth rate this year is small, the dynamics of the industrial production index is also not impressive, but they are still not negative, ”emphasizes the source of“ Logirus ”. – And that means, albeit at a small pace, freight traffic will continue to grow.
The market is negatively affected by the continued decline in retail and wholesale, added Alexey Kalachev. However, the start of financing the implementation of national projects in the second half of the year should generally have a positive effect on freight traffic.
