It has been a difficult few years for those in the transport industry particularly when it comes to commercial vehicles. Most van companies have reported drops in sales, some are even down by 50% compared to last year. Van sales are often seen of a good indication of how small businesses are coping with financial hardship, most don't upgrade or expand their fleets unless they are comfortable financially.
Volkswagen have reported that despite reduced sales they have managed to increase their market share in the last five months. the company now has 10.65 percent market share, an improvement of 2.3 percent. Sales of VW vans actually rose by 9% in September compared to the same month last year. This is positive news for a market that is a cause for concern for anyone with vans for sale.
