In the latest transport price index, released from TEG this week, they confirm that the market has shown a significant price per mile increase in September, which follows a month-on- month increase since January supporting their strong expectations of further rises.
FLS boasts the UK’s largest network of carriers engaged via our platforms, giving the team information on their location, when they are empty and where they need to go. This data insight enables FLS planners to assign vehicles close to collection point, regardless of their origin.
