Strain still evident in the logistics sector during February 2024

After declining abruptly in January, the Ctrack Transport and Freight Index (Ctrack TFI) subsided further in February to an index level of 118.6, a drop of 0.8% compared to January’s level of 119.6 and the lowest since February 2023. Although the pace of decline has subsided compared to January, the heavy-weighted road and rail freight sectors were the main drivers of the further deterioration. However, despite a further drop on a monthly basis, the Ctrack TFI is still 2.5% above year-ago levels.
