Volume of goods transported by lorries grew

In the third quarter of 2008, the volume of goods transported by lorries in domestic road transport grew by 9 per cent from the corresponding quarter of 2007. Most of the growth came from increased transport of soil materials. The volume of other transported goods diminished by 5 per cent.
