Since the beginning of 2010 a quarterly survey has been carried out across the members of the Association as part of the activities of the Land Transport Working Group. This is known as the ECG Confidence and Cost Trends Survey.

Importantly the responses are collected online through Zoomerang and this allows responses to be completely confidential if you wish. Whilst ECG can see which companies have responded we cannot see the individual input.

The early results simply produced snapshots based on the responses received, but since the end of 2010 there have been sufficient returns from enough surveys to also start to plot and identify trends in the information. These results are an invaluable tool for ECG as clear messages can be derived from this and used in conversations with the press and other third parties.

Of course, the results are visible to members only, so if you are logged in please click here to see the results of the latest ECG Quarterly Survey on Confidence and Cost Trends in the finished vehicle logistics sector.
