BMI is forecasting growth in all of France's freight transport modes in 2012. This will be driven by a projected 3.6% real growth in France's total trade (imports plus exports). It is noted that there is considerable risk to this. Going into 2012 the Eurozone debt crises are yet to be put to bed, with serious implications for France. Not only is the country a fully-signed up member of the Eurozone, but its top trade partners are as well. Nevertheless, the country is investing in its freight transport sector, with expansions at ports and new investments in canals.
