Freight carrier challenges

Maintain your profitability in the face of rising costs

In 2022, the price of commercial diesel fuel increased by 43.5%. Environmental and geopolitical disturbances caused by the Covid pandemic have strongly pushed resource prices upwards, in particular the price of gasoline. Maintaining margins while controlling per kilometer cost requires enhanced visibility and traceability of spending.

Overcome labor shortages

 425,000 vacant truck driver positions in Europe. This is the reality you are facing. A wave of retirements, a job that is less attractive to younger generations, and fears about driverless trucks are just some of the factors that are harming the sector. Maximizing use of your resources and in particular human resources, is key to pursuing growth.

Reduce your greenhouse gas emissions

In Europe, more than one quarter of CO2 emissions is related to freight transportation: the EU has committed to a 55% reduction in these emissions by 2030. Decarbonisation of the sector is essential to meet regulatory requirements. Beyond changes in transportation and motorization modes, optimizing distances travelled is key to succeeding. It is time to act.

 Currently, one third of drivers will retire over the coming five years. At this rate, we could have up to 200,000 unfilled driver positions in France in five years’ time. (IRU report, 2022)
