Goods transported by lorries in domestic transport decreased in July to September 2011

In the third quarter of 2011, the volume of goods transported by lorries in domestic road transport decreased by 22 per cent from the corresponding quarter of 2010. A total of 74 million tonnes of goods were transported by lorries during the July to September period of 2011. Twenty-six per cent less of soil materials and 19 per cent less of other materials were transported than in the July to September period of 2010.

These data derive from the statistics on goods transport by road compiled by Statistics Finland. The method of the statistics on goods transport by road was revised as of the beginning of 2011. The data concerning the years 2001 to 2010 have been recalculated using the new method and they are available in Finnish at: http://pxnet2.stat.fi/PXWeb/pxweb/fi/StatFin/StatFin__Lii__kttav/?tablelist=true. The data are not comparable with data published earlier.

In the third quarter of 2011, the transport performance of lorries totalled 5,569 million tonne-kilometres, of which 536 million tonne-kilometres were in private transport and 5,033 million tonne-kilometres in professional 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.
