About the Transport Market Monitor

The Transport Market Monitor by TRANSPOREON and Capgemini Consulting is a quarterly publication that aims to track transport market dynamics.

The purpose of the Transport Market Monitor is to provide insights into the development of transport prices, and other transport market dynamics to logistics executives and other interest groups. It is a joint initiative by TRANSPOREON and Capgemini Consulting.

The indices in the Monitor are based on the logistics platform TRANSPOREON, on which shippers tender and process their transport needs to their preferred transport partners on a daily basis. This results in monthly indices which are published on a quarterly basis. In addition to each publication of the Monitor, one or more market themes are discussed, supported by detailed analysis.

TRANSPOREON and Capgemini Consulting can help you to find the right strategy between static and dynamic prices. Additional market information per industry, region or international traffic lane is available upon request.
