In an industry where operating margins are historically low and where success frequently hugs the line between profit and loss, the recent downturn in global oil prices should have provided welcome relief. But pressures associated with “going green,” shortages of skilled labor, increased traffic congestion, the exponential growth in home delivery, and high taxes on fuel present you and other road haulers with a new set of challenges.
The capital- and asset-intensive rail sector is also experiencing a significant period of change, especially in Europe, where you need to balance passenger demand for speedy and efficient service with traditional long-distance freight transport. Increased governmental regulation requires you to collaborate across borders and with other organizations to provide even the most basic services.
