Romania Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q3 2016

Romania Freight Transport and Shipping Report Q3 2016

BMI View: We hold a highly positive outlook on Romanian household spending in 2016, which will drive demand for imports of consumer goods. This will provide a particular boost to road and air freight, and to container handling at the Black Sea port of Constanta

A positive outlook for the agricultural sector in Romania will help the country's rail freight sector achieve volume growth of 2.3% in 2016. Over the years ahead, growth in rail freight volumes will lag that of air and road freight, due to its lesser exposure to the buoyant Romanian consumer sector. A potential privatisation of CFR Marta in 2016 poses upside risks to our forecast.

Romania has a major port in Constanta, which is located on the Black Sea. Furthermore, the country also has sizeable inland waterways as the Danube river travels through its territory, forming much of the southern border with Bulgaria. Our outlook for both of these is positive, forecasting an expansion in volumes in line with Romania's healthy economic growth outlook.
