ABSTRACT
This article presents results of the survey 'Quarterly Transport Activity Survey: January 2000, which was conducted by the Freight Transport Association. It was found out that road freight in Great Britain grew by a record rate in the fourth quarter of 1999. But operators say that due to increased congestion the scheduling reliability of the road network continues to worsen. It was also reported that the steady decline in international road haulage activity in Great Britain was checked in the final quarter of 1999, and that although rail continues to record strong interest, service reliability improvements have not been sustained. The rate of growth was expected to fall back in the first quarter of 2000, with growth in manufacturing weakening and a widespread expectation in the agricultural sector of a fall in activity.
