Spring brings green shoots

With all the recent news of companies going bust and the difficult economic climate that prevails, one might think that the UK freight market is in almost terminal decline, yet a recent road freight transport report has stated that the UK Freight Market is poised for growth of up to USD 79.7 billion by 2029 (growing at a CAGR of 2.86% from 2024 to 2029).

After all the doom and gloom of recent times, this is welcome news but the key issue remains that a freight company needs both to survive the current turmoil and be able to capitalise on any new opportunities that may present themselves. To take advantage of those new opportunities that will invariably arise in the months and years to come, a freight operator simply must have easy, instantaneous access to exactly the right information at exactly the right time; only then can they ensure that all stakeholders are kept in the loop on a real-time basis. The easiest way to achieve any and all of the above is to have a full-capability SaaS-based transport management system (TMS) that delivers timely and correct outcomes - with no capital investment required by the operator! All savings that arise therefrom, of course, can be used in other areas of the business.

In essence, therefore, the future for the freight transport industry is potentially bright, but much more so if are using the best SaaS-based TMS in the market, and can give you a free demo of exactly that: CarrierNet, our award-winning TMS.
