Optimistic airfreight forwarders

European airfreight forwarders are expecting volumes to continue to increase over the coming two months.
The latest monthly Danske Bank forwarder index for expectations for the coming two months came in at 57 points, with any figure above 50 suggesting that participants expect volumes to grow over the period.
The April survey also shows an improvement on future expectations compared with the March survey, when the index stood at 54 points.
Current volumes are also ahead of where they were two months ago, with this index standing at 57 points, again suggesting an improvement over the period.
However, there has been a slight tailing off in growth levels as the index stood at 63 points in March.
