Transporeon: demand for France-UK cargo now 17% up on Q3 levels

New figures published by Transporeon show that demand for France-UK cargo is now 17% up on Q3 levels, while rejection rates have almost halved.

Commenting on the data, Transporeon Chief Executive Officer Stephan Sieber said that “Market players have slowly commenced adjusting to the new circumstances.”

Bloomberg’s Lizzy Burden, who broke the story, says the figures “confirm post-Brexit trade is recovering.”

However, the data does not necessarily show the full picture. As has been reported for some time now, a significant proportion of trucks are still returning from the UK to the EU empty. Various estimations put the figure at anywhere between 40-68%.
