Our surveys to TenderEasy’s transport providers show how the unprecedent situation triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their businesses and freight demand. Since May, we have witnessed a positive evolution of the trends and improvements in the transport demand, as well as the outlooks for the future.
When zooming in into September’s survey, we see a slightly more positive trend that we saw during the summer months when it comes to the demand for transport services when compared with the same period last year. Similarly, about 50% of respondents experienced about the same inflow of tenders than in September 2019, and 22% experienced an increase.
The outlook for the future remains stable and similar to the previous months, with a cautious view on the months to come as some of our respondents highlight that the current situation and rising number of new cases across Europe bring uncertainty to the freight market.
