Advance Commodity Index

The objective of this advance freight index is to anticipate as far as possible the behavior of the freight transport market. The advance freight index is compiled on the basis of a brief monthly questionnaire on the transport demand received by companies in the current month, the actual orders of the previous month and the order expectations for the following month. As it is a monthly index, it is possible to verify the degree of fulfillment of one month's orders that are transformed into actual services in the following month and how its variation has an upward or downward influence as orders are transformed into actual invoicing. This index has been designed by the Transport Economics Chair of the Carlos III University directed by Mr. Álvaro Escribano.
