Industry revenue of freight transport by road in Italy 2011-2023

Italy, one of the major countries in Southern Europe and the founder of the European Union (EU), has been the beneficiary of various economic co-operation initiatives between the member states. However neither has this growth nor the increase in the country’s e -Commerce revenues, benefitted the country’s freight road transport industry much, with revenues almost plateauing during the period 2016-2023, increasing from 54 billion U.S dollars to only an estimated 55.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2023.

With over 250,000 kilometers of roads, road transport is one of the primary means of passenger and freight transport. In fact, companies involved in the road freight transport business clocked as much as 160 million Euros in operating revenues in 2017. However, the government is now making concerted efforts to increase its investment in both rail and maritime transport to reduce congestion on its motorways.

BRT, DHL Express (Italy), United Parcel Service Italia, DSV and Schenker Italiana are the top five companies in this industry, where revenues totaled as much as 6 billion Euros in 2017.
