Volume of goods transported by lorries remained unchanged but the transport performance grew in the first quarter of 2017

A total of 58 million tonnes of goods were transported by lorries in the first quarter of 2017, which was as much as in the corresponding quarter of 2013.

The total transport volume of lorries amounted to 6.1 billion tonne-kilometres in the first quarter of 2017, which was 16 per cent more than in the corresponding quarter of one year before. Ninety-four per cent of the transport volume was transported in professional transport and six per cent in private transport.

The data for the statistics on goods transport by road are collected from lorry owners with a quarterly sample survey. Transported volume of goods refers to the weight of goods loaded on lorries in tonnes. Tonne-kilometre describes the volume of transport and is obtained as a product of transported volume of goods and length of transport journey.
