Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/12/2013 -- Following a year (2012) in which BMI saw growth slowing, or even being negative, in some freight modes, we are forecasting 2013 to signal a return to growth in two freight modes and its acceleration in two others.
Total trade is projected to continue picking up with our Country Risk desk forecasting a year-on-year (yo- y) increase of 2.82% in 2013 following a growth of 8.55% in 2012.
Road freight should continue to dominate the sector, even after a projected decline of 1.1% y-o-y in 2012. The decline is evidence that the sector did not manage to defy the downturn. It also shows that the sector has been unable to defy EU pledges of a decrease in road haulage across the region. BMI notes that rail is the likeliest candidate in the Czech Republic's freight transport mix to benefit from any diversification away from road.

Risks to Outlook
A longer and more pronounced slowdown in eurozone growth than BMI currently forecasts, creates considerable downside risks to our forecasts for Czech Republic's freight transport growth. The country and the sector rely heavily on the external market for growth, particularly while government expenditure is dragged down by fiscal austerity and as consumers struggle to bounce back from the global recession.
