How to analyze the data

TransBarometer displays current information about the availability of vehicles and loads in a particular place. Data is collected on the basis of added and searched offers.

After defining the loading location, the chart will present the percentage of load offers and available vehicles.

The data is presented with two semicircles: green and blue.

  1. The green semicircle shows data related to the added offers:
  • The light green part of the semi-circle shows the percentage of vehicles available.
  • The dark green part shows the available freight percentage.
  1. The blue semicircle shows data related to searching for offers:
  • The light blue part shows the percentage of vehicle demand.
  • The dark blue part shows the percentage of freight demand.

When you hover over the selected part of the chart, the data will be displayed in the tooltip.

If the arrow is tilted in any direction, it means that there is greater demand for vehicles and/or loads in a given location.

Thanks to this knowledge, you can conduct negotiations faster and more effectively from the very beginning. Based on the assessment of the market situation, you can determine the starting price.
