The total performance of domestic freight transport decreased by more than 7% last year as a result of international political influences and the European recession, and fewer goods were transported by road, rail and water, according to the summary of the Association of Hungarian Logistics Service Centers (MLSZKSZ), write profitline.hu.

Intermodal traffic was less affected by the crisis, so transport combining several modes of transport increased its share in total traffic.

The domestic result is also outstanding because intermodal traffic in the EU as a whole decreased by more than 10% last year.

In the difficult economic situation, the expansion of goods delivery is not expected this year either, even repeating last year's performance would be considered a result. However, the rise of intermodal transport may continue to accelerate.
