DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xvjsx7/uk_road_haulage) has announced the addition of the "UK Road Haulage Market Report 2015" report to their offering.
This market report evaluates the UK market for freight transport, which can be segmented into three main sectors:
- Own-account distribution
- Contract distribution
- Shared-user distribution.
Both contract and shared-user distribution methods can be categorised as public haulage, or 'hire and reward' haulage. This description for both sectors combined is used in relation to the data provided in Chapter 3 - Market Size, Segmentation & Forecasts.
Road haulage that is carried out by industrial or commercial organisations on their own behalf - as opposed to contracted out to a haulage company - is referred to as own-account distribution. Typically, these industrial or commercial organisations will own and operate their own fleet of HGVs and simultaneously employ their own drivers. Road haulage is not the company's main business activity, but serves to complement its core business.
Contract distribution involves the provision of freight services through contracts with specialist companies engaged within the haulage sector. These services generally cover entire supply chain operations, from the delivery of raw materials to the distribution of finished products. Such contracts are typically signed on a medium- to long-term basis. This sector of the market is largely dominated by major national and international logistics and haulage businesses that have considerable capital resources to invest in modern supply chain management services.
Shared-user distribution caters to those companies that do not require supply chain management, or those with operations that do not justify a dedicated contract distribution arrangement. The services typically provided within this sector include consolidated loads and short-term or ad-hoc services. Shared-user distribution can be used by larger companies as a supplement to their main activities in contract distribution, and as a means to fill excess capacity.
