Sales grow 20% but only for some UK hauliers

Stockton-on-Tees, UK:  A new study by industry analysts Plimsoll Publishing has identified a group of 230 emerging companies in the UK road haulage industry that have boosted sales by an average 20% and are taking further control of the market at the start of 2012.

However, it is not all good news.  Of the 1000 companies analysed in the just published Plimsoll Analysis, 175 saw their own sales fall, on average by -8% in the same period.

David Pattison, author of this new market study says: “This is absolute evidence that whatever growth there is in the market is being captured by a select group of companies.”
