Business Monitor International's Egypt Freight Transport Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, freight transportation associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Egypt's freight transportation industry.

Political uncertainty in the run-up to Egypt's November 2012 elections, coupled with concerns over the nature of the incoming administration and future economic policy, have made 2012 a difficult year to predict for the country. While BMI expects continuing short-term volatility, BMI remains more bullish as to Egypt's medium to longer-term future.

Looking specifically at the freight transport sector, increasing militancy by workers has been an important short-term issue. Strikes by port workers and air traffic controllers in late 2011 could spread to other transport modes as we go into Q112. On the upside, with GDP growth in FY2011/12 expected to rise to 2.6% from 0.5% in 2010/11, BMI expects to see some growth in cargo turnover. Once political uncertainties begin to subside BMI also expects to see much needed investment in the freight industry.
